WHISTLER OLYMPIC/PARALYMPIC PARK
The Whistler Olympic Park is the location of the Nordic events facilities for the 2010 Winter Olympics and is located in the Madeley Creek basin in the Callaghan Valley, west of Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. The facility will host the Biathlon, Cross-Country Skiing, Nordic Combined, and Ski Jumping. The compact, one-square-kilometer Olympic Games core area includes three separate stadiums with a capacity for 12,000 fans in each stadium, located about 400 metres apart.
Approximately 15 kilometres of Olympic competition trails for cross-country skiing and biathlon have been built and tested. The biathlon stadium’s range consists of 30 lanes with a fully electronic target system able to detect and report the precise time and hit or miss of each bullet fired. The two ski jumps (normal hill and large hill) include one of the world’s most sophisticated ski jump snow refrigeration and track setting systems.
