Completed in November 2007, Whistler Creekside (elev. 2650 feet) will host the men's and women's Alpine skiing events at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Venue seating capacity is 7,600.
The men's downhill slope is located on the newly-designed Dave Murray Downhill course on Whistler Mountain, named for the late Canadian Alpine skier who competed in the 1980 Lake Placid Games and made up one part of the popular "Crazy Canucks" Canadian speed team of the 1970's and 1980's. The women's downhill course, Franz's Run, is parallel to the men's course. It is named for Franz Wilhelmson, who was a driving force in getting the Whistler Resort to its current status as a top ski resort in North America.
The super-G, giant slalom, slalom and super-combined will also be held at Whistler Creekside.
The venue is located a short drive from Whistler Village and the Whistler Athletes' Village.
Following the Games, Whistler Creekside will continue to offer world class ski conditions for tourists and all recreational skiers, while also being used for future international competitions and national training.
