Owner description: Whistler Olympic Park has a history of glory and gold. One-third of all medals at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games were awarded at the venue. Today, it remains an active centre for world-class competitors while preserving the winter legacy for the enjoyment of the Sea to Sky community and visitors. In addition to exploring 130 kilometers of picturesque ski and snowshoe trails, we offer biathlon, ski jumping, tobogganing and baseboarding. Summer activities also provide exciting recreational opportunities for adults and children alike.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We are huge fans of the Olympics and were so excited to visit Olympic Park. This is a really disappointing trip and you can absolutely skip this. There is not much to see. I cannot believe they charge $5 to get in. As we left we joked about if people ask for their money back on the way out. Don't be fooled by the "snack shack" thinking you can get lunch because it is literally granola bars and bags of chips. The whole thing was a little depressing to see what happens to the area after the Olympics.

“Strikingly beautiful, clean and great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Whistler was a wonderful place to visit. So much to do in the great outdoors with parks, golfing, hiking, biking etc.
Loved the biking areas around the lakes, so well mapped out and easy to find the trails.
It made a memorable vacation with family.
So glad we made the trip.
The drive to Whistler from Vancouver is so green, lush and full of beautiful sites.

“Good Attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Great drive from Vancouver, The Sea to Sky drive along Route 99 is awesome and well worth the drive up to Whistler.
$5 for parking in the summer is strange but we did it.
It is a great area to walk around. The Olympic village is beautiful and has lots of restaurants and shopping
They open it up in the summer for dirt biking and it was fun to watch

$5 per vehicle to go in, there's not much too see other than paying another $5 for triathlon shooting.

“A good place to see bears”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I went in the summer. You can see the large ski jumps and just alot of the olympic rings. They have a Biathlon shooting range that costs $10 for 5 shots. There is an instructor watching. Be on the lookout for Bears, they are here and also on the road that takes you back down to the main hwy.
