Whistler Olympic Park
More than a third of the medals awarded at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games were won at Whistler Olympic Park, a massive facility built to stage the Nordic ski disciplines of cross-country skiing, ski-jumping, and biathlon. But even though the cameras have left and the athletes have returned to their homes or ice-cube trays, this world-class sports venue stills hums with nimble ski jumpers and eagle-eyed biathletes. The latter have a particularly impressive home, centered on a 6,000-square-foot technical building. During introductory lessons and sports development programs, they don cross-country skis to loop around 4 kilometres of competition trails, and take aim at fully electronic targets inside a 30-lane shooting range with adjacent penalty loop.
Whistler Sliding Centre
Record books don't lie: the Whistler Sliding Centre is the world's fastest ice track. As the site of the bobsled, luge, and skeleton competitions during the 2010 Winter Games, the track challenged the courage of some of the most elite ice athletes in the world. Today, it continues to offer a steep challenge; the track remains the site of international competitions, recruiting camps, and ongoing youth programs meant to develop the next generation of sliders. However, a trip to the track isn't limited to career athletes; the Whistler Sliding Centre offers both bobsleigh and skeleton rides during the winter, and passenger bobsleigh during the summer.
