Parking Changes in Whistler During the 2010 Winter Games

Games Time Parking

During the Paralympic Winter Games, spectators can ride-share/carpool to designated spectator parking lots at the base of Whistler Paralympic Park near the Callaghan Valley Road and park for free. From there, fully accessible spectator shuttles will take you to Whistler Paralympic Park and Whistler Creekside. There is no cost to use the shuttle; just show your day of event ticket to board.

To reach the Whistler Paralympic Park lots: from Vancouver, take Highway 99 north (Sea to Sky Highway) toward Whistler. Continue past Squamish, Pinecrest Estates and Black Tusk Village until you reach the parking lots.

Do not park on the Callaghan Valley Road. Strict towing policies will be enforced.
