Venue Description
The compact two-square-kilometre Olympic Games core area includes three separate stadiums located about 500 metres apart. Approximately 14 kilometres of competition trails for cross-country skiing (two separate five km loops) and biathlon (one four km loop) have been constructed. Two ski jumps (normal hill and large hill) will be visible to all visitors as they enter the venue. An additional 20-25 kilometres of recreational trails will cover spectacular cross-country ski terrain next to the Olympic Games core area.

All Paralympic cross-country skiing and biathlon events will start and finish from the Olympic cross-country stadium and will use parts of both the Olympic cross-country and biathlon competition trails. A temporary and portable 10-metre biathlon range will be set up in the stadium for the biathlon events. Paralympic competition courses include a five-kilometre course for the standing classes and a 3.75-kilometre course for the sit-ski classes.

Construction Update
The construction project involves the competition facilities as described above, technical sport buildings at each of the three stadiums, sewer/water/power services, access roads, internal roads, parking lots, a day lodge and other related infrastructure facilities. Construction of the permanent elements of the Whistler Olympic Park began in April 2005 and were completed in the fall of 2007. Temporary construction and facilities for the 2010 Games will commence in summer 2009.

Post-Games Use
Whistler Olympic Park/Whistler Paralympic Park will be a legacy for the enjoyment of local residents, visitors and athletes both recreationally and at a high performance level.
