Whistler 2010 Olympic Rental >

On July 2nd, 2003, when the International Olympic Committee selected Vancouver as the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, an incredible honor and responsibility was also bestowed upon Whistler. Along with Vancouver, Whistler Blackcomb and the community of Whistler became an official Olympic venue.

The resort of Whistler was in fact born on an Olympic dream. Franz Wilhelmsen, the man who opened Whistler for skiing in the 1960's, did so in the hopes of hosting the Games here. In the following years, some Whistlerites have been a part of the Games as athletes, spectators and organizers. Now, everyone in Whistler will have the unique chance to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games will be staged in Vancouver and Whistler from February 12 to 28, 2010.

The 2010 Paralympic Winter Games will be staged in Whistler from March 12 to 21, 2010.
