Whistler Olympic Center

Whistler Olympic Park or Olympic Center

My favorite Olympic venue was the new Nordic sports Whistler Olympic Park.   I’m probably biased because I’m such an avid cross-country skier, or maybe it was my favorite because the new facilities were so beautiful, and the remote mountainous setting was perfect for such sporting events. 

These facilities are located in the Callaghan Valley about 15 kilometers from the Whistler Village.  The Callaghan Valley is an undeveloped area full of wonderful large trees and surrounded by numerous snow covered mountain peaks.  Along with cross-country skiing, this area will also host other Nordic events such as biathlon and ski jumping.  Below is the new ski jumping hill.

  1. Hi Ron: I recognize you from NaturePhotographers.org. I enjoy looking at your winter photographs. The only Winter Olympics Venue I have ever seen was Lake Placid, in New York. The Whistler location looks spectatular

    Hi Andy,

    Hey thanks a lot for the comment! These are great venues – hopefully they will provide a great Olympic experience. It would be fun to see Lake Placid on day.

    Thanks again,
