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. Whistler Olympic Park will be open for the WINTER season 2017/2018 starting on November 23, 2017 (season will end late March/early April 2018). In addition to exploring 130 kilometers of picturesque cross-country ski and snowshoe trails, we offer snow play activities such as biathlon, tobogganing, baseboarding, fat biking and ski jumping. Whistler Olympic Park will be open again for SUMMER from June until September 2018. Summer activities include Summer Biathlon, Electric Assist Fat Bike Rentals and Olympic Sightseeing!

Whistler is a beautiful town, summer or winter. It is a place that you park on the outskirts of town then walk in. To go anywhere in Whistler you must walk so if you have older people that have difficulty getting around you may want to plan accordingly. The visitors center had one wheelchair to rent and it was already gone when we got there. You would think a place that is known for skiing would have wheelchairs for those who find out they are not as good of a skier as they thought they were. Besides the lack of wheelchairs this is a wonderful place to spend a day or two, walking around looking in the shops and discovering new restaurants. One thing that you must do when you are there and the trip would not be complete without it, is to do the Peak to Peak gondola ride. It is about $40 per person but you take a small gondola up to the top of the mountain and then you can take a chairlift up to the very top peak (highly recommended) at no additional cost, then get something to eat at the lodge and checkout some of the shops. Once you are done there you can take the larger gondola to go from Peak to Peak. They do have a few gondolas with a glass bottom for the brave. The distance between the two peaks is about 3 miles but it is high. You can spend as much time as you like up in the mountains and you can even take another chairlift down from that mountain peak and get a great view of Whistler but you are a little walk away from town. If you don't want to do the walk you can just get back on the Peak to Peak gondola and retrace your steps right back down the mountain into the town of Whistler. The fee is for one trip up the mountain and back down. You can ride all chairlifts and gondola's that are up on the mountains for additional cost. It is well worth the money.

An incredibly lovely place to visit and have fune with the family and friends. A must resort for any visitor to BC. You only need more time, at least a full day's visit to enjoy most of the activities.

we stopped at the Olympic park where the ski jumping.cross country and Bialalon was held as we were driving back to Vancouver. There was a great deal of snow on the ground when we were there which helped set to tone.

The entry fee was modest and on the day that we stopped received a discount to shoot a bialalon rifle.It was a nice experience.

On the way back to the main Highway stopped and watched a bear watch us on the side of the road,this became the hihlight of the day for use.
