Whistler Medals Plaza: Venue Overview

Nightly Victory Ceremonies for Nordic and Alpine events for the Whistler-based sports during the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games will be held at an outdoor plaza created in Whistler's town centre.

The Whistler Medals Plaza will be a legacy of the 2010 Winter Games.  Designed to provide athletes, residents and visitors to the mountain community with the opportunity to recognize the achievements of each day's medal winners, the Whistler Medals Plaza will also provide a unique venue for the Paralympic Winter Games Closing Ceremony.

Medals will be awarded in the Paralympic sports of alpine skiing, biathlon and cross-country skiing at Whistler Medals Plaza. Ice sledge hockey and wheelchair curling medals will be awarded in-venue in Vancouver at the University of British Columbia (also known as the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre) and the Vancouver Paralympic Centre. From March 19 to 21, Whistler event medals will also be awarded in-venue so the plaza can prepare for the Closing Ceremony.
