2010 Winter Games
The Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) was proud to be the Host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
In a community of adventure seekers and sports enthusiasts, hosting the Olympics was always part of the dream that inspired the evolution of the community of Whistler and development of the ski area. Co-hosting the Games with Vancouver was a once in a lifetime opportunity that surpassed every expression of what it might or could be.
While those 27 days were a defining moment in our history, the 2010 Winter Games themselves were a catalyst for accelerating the vision and goals identified in the community’s long-term strategic plan – Whistler 2020, creating lasting legacies for generations to come.
The 2010 Winter Games may be over, but the magic and legacies they brought to Whistler will last for generations to come. Relive the moments and create your own by taking part in the self-guided 2010 Winter Games Tour.
The 2010 Games left countless legacies in Whistler, including the sport venues that are used today for the enjoyment of residents, visitors and high performance athletes.
Planning for the Games
Hosting the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games required thoughtful and strategic planning, coordination and collaboration.
To guide the community in our role as Host Mountain Resort, the municipality prepared Delivering the Dream – The 2010 Winter Games Strategic Framework to ensure we leveraged Games-related opportunities for long-term legacies and successfully delivered on Games commitments in a fiscally responsible way.
Post-games, the municipality prepared the wrap-up Living the Dream report. Whistler’s Games journey – as outlined in this report – was realized through the power of partnership, the spirit of collaboration and the ability of the Games to rally individuals, organizations and the community to help create a defining moment in Canada’s history.
