A venue for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Whistler Olympic Park is the first Olympic Nordic venue to include all three traditional Nordic sport stadiums in one site: cross-country, ski jumping and biathlon. The Park hosted the 2010 Olympic Games competitions in ski jumping, Nordic combined, cross-country skiing and biathlon as well as the 2010 Paralympic Games cross-country skiing and biathlon competitions. The venue now serves as a legacy for the enjoyment of local residents, visitors and athletes.
