Vancouver Winter Games 2010 - 17. December 2007.

More than two years before Games begin, construction completed at all Whistler-based Vancouver 2010 competition venues

Whistler, BC – Canadian construction workers may not win coveted Olympic and Paralympic competition medals, but they most definitely set new records this month with the completion of construction on all three Whistler Olympic and Paralympic competition venues, on time and on budget. In reaching this landmark goal, the team was able to meet a commitment by the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) to offer venues for athlete training two years before the 2010 Winter Games begin. Funded equally by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia, the venues offer all Canadians a legacy of high performance and recreational use, both before – and long after – the 2010 Winter Games.



Construction is now complete at The Whistler Sliding Centre, Whistler Olympic Park (formerly known as the Whistler Nordic Venue) and Whistler Creekside. Whistler Creekside has been operational since the beginning of the 2007-08 ski season; Whistler Olympic Park is operational and will host its first sport competition, and open for public access, tomorrow, December 15th; detailed fit-out and testing at The Whistler Sliding Centre will continue over the next few months.
