An Olympic Part Of Whistler's History
The 2010 Winter Olympic Games are now part of Whistler's long history as a member of the Sea to Sky Corridor community in BC Canada. Whistler has gone from a small fishing resort on the side of Alta lake to an international vacation destination that hosts some of the most important sporting events in the world. The success of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games with increased tourism and expanded facilities has turned Whistler resort into a great holiday location for all visitors. Local athletes and visitors to the resort continue to enjoy the Olympic legacy in the resort when visiting the Sliding Centre located at the base of Blackcomb mountain or the Dave Murray Downhill located high at the top of Whistler mountain.
