Events at Whistler Creekside
With more than two million visitors a year, Whistler is consistently ranked as the number one ski resort in North America. The 2010 Olympic Winter Games is definitely not the first event this mountain range has hosted, and it most likely wont be the last either. The resort, holding a capacity of 7,600 fans on the actual slope, has extensive experience hosting International Ski Federation (FIS) World Cup competitions. The men’s Olympic alpine skiing events will be held on the Dave Murray Downhill. The ladies’ Olympic alpine skiing course and the Paralympic alpine skiing events will take place on Franz’s Run. No need to worry about damage to the mountains or closing of the resorts, because after the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, Whistler Creekside will continue to offer a world-class ski area to recreational skiers and will be a site for future international competitions and Canadian team training. Also, Whistler says the mountains will remain 90% open to the public during the 2010 Winter Games.
