Description

This place will be very hot in 6 monthes with eyes from all over the world focusing on the 2010 Winter Olympics that will be taking place here. Interestingly, Whistler was offered the 1976 Winter Olympics after selected host Denver declined the games due to funding issues. Whistler declined as well, due to the lack of enthusiastic about the Olympics. Well, that was 33 years ago.
Actually, City of Vancouver will be the co-hosts with Whistler for the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games with Whistler as the Host Mountain Resort.
Whistler will host the alpine technical and speed events, the sliding events, the Nordic events in nearby Callaghan Valley and all the Paralympic events except the opening ceremonies, sledge hockey and wheelchair curling.
It will take about 2 hrs to drive from Vancouver to Whistler along the beautiful breathtaking view roads - blue bays, green lakes, and white snow mountains (Summer only, of cause). Here are some example views: gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27900 and gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=27942
