Whistler Local Vehicle Permitting During the 2010 Winter Games

What is the Local Vehicle Permit?

To ensure the smoothest flow of traffic during Games time, a limited number of neighbourhoods will only be accessible with a Localized Vehicle Permit (LVP). The LVP has been created in order to ensure that residents and guests can easily access their properties; decrease congestion and traffic in these neighbourhoods and minimize the chance of having non-residents attempting to part in unauthorized locations.

The Localized Vehicle Permit for the 2010 Olympic Games will be in effect from February 4, to February 28, 2010. 

Which neighbourhoods will require Localized Vehicle Permit Areas during the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games ?

There are only two local roads which will be subject to a localized vehicle permitting checkpoint. Localized Vehicle Permit (LVP) checkpoints will be in operation from March 7 through March 21, 2010. These areas and the checkpoint hours of operation are as follows:

  • Creekside East (LANE)  London Lane : 6 am - 4 pm
  • Taluswood (DOOR) Nordic Drive above Taluswood Place : 6 am - 4 pm

How do I get a Localized Vehicle Permit if my neighbourhood is in the LVP zone?

  • VANOC will commence mailing LVPs directly to qualified property owners in mid-November;
  • Qualified tenants in auxiliary suites can pick-up their LVP from the Permit Office. Proof of name (such as driver's license) and residence address (such as utility bill) will be required to be provided; and
  • Commercial businesses qualified to receive permits will make a request for their allotment of LVPs at the Permit Office, based on the information provided above. The RMOW will review these requests and confirm the number of permits to be issued. Once processed, permits will be available for pick-up by the business at the Permit Office. Please review the LVP summary document (below) for details regarding commercial business permit allocations.

A pre- Games and Games-time Permit Office will be established and operational in Whistler to address issues related to Localized Vehicle Permitting, at Municipal Hall: 4325 Blackcomb Way in Whistler.

  • December 14 - February 11: Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
  • February 12 - February 28: 7 days a week, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm
