Whistler Stories: Ideas to Generate Compelling Stories

For the first time in Olympic history, the International Olympic Committee has bestowed the designation Host Mountain Resort upon a community - recognizing Whistler's significant role in staging and hosting the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.  Home to the Nordic, sliding and alpine events, more than half of the Olympic medals in 2010 will be awarded in Whistler. The 2010 Winter Games will leave numerous legacies for our community. While partnering to produce an extraordinary Games experience, we are also working to achieve our long-term community vision. 

While we cheer on the athletes in our beautiful mountain resort, we'll also throw a 27 day arts and culture celebration right in the heart of our village. Many visitors are unaware that about 10,000 residents call Whistler home and this unique fusion of sport, arts, culture and entertainment is what we live for!  To share some of the points of interest on our community, we have summarized a number of story starters to help media select the content needed to generate compelling stories for your audience. Contact us at [email protected] for potential spokespeople, images and b-roll footage to complete your stories.
