HomePlanning for Success


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.

Our approach to creating and developing the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in Whistler has been uniquely recognized with many historic firsts for the Olympic Games.

Firsts for the 2010 Winter Games:

  • 1st with two official host communities: Vancouver -- Host City, and Whistler -- Host Mountain Resort
  • 1st with two separate Celebration Sites programs: Vancouver and Whistler
  • 1st to hold the Paralympic Games Closing Ceremony outside of the Host City
  • 1st where the mountain venues have been completed two years before the Games

The 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games - the biggest winter sporting and cultural events in the world - are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Whistler. To take full advantage, we have had to understand the opportunities, assess the risks, and develop and deliver plans that allow us to leverage the Games.

For 27 days in 2010, Whistler will showcase itself to the world, at a level it has never experienced before. The Games will create lasting legacies, and ultimately accelerate our journey to a successful future.
