So, You’re Bound for B.C.?
From the Opening and Closing Ceremonies in downtown Vancouver and up the
Sea to Sky Corridor to Whistler for the alpine and nordic events, the 2010 Games
will transform British Columbia into an even more amazing (and very busy) place.
For spectators trying to squeeze it all in, careful budgeting of time is a must. Getting from central Vancouver to Cypress Mountain for freestyle events can take
up to an hour, while a trip to Whistler can cost you around three hours. VANOC’s
suggestion? Skip the car. With no spectator parking at venues, the Olympic bus
network will be your best bet to get there before the medals are handed out.
Ski jumping is one of the four nordic disciplines at Whistler Olympic Park.
Five U.S. folks landed in the top 10 at
last season’s Cypress World Cup.
Whistler has alpine — and its own
Olympic Village and Medals Plaza.
A total of 28 Olympic events will take
place at the Whistler Olympic Park.
Ski cross will be held at Cypress
Mountain, 19 miles from Vancouver.
