The new Whistler Olympic Park is located eleven miles southwest of the village of Whistler, British Columbia, in an area called the Callaghan Valley.
For the first time, all four Nordic skiing disciplines - cross-country skiing, biathlon, ski jumping and Nordic combined -- will be held at the same Olympic venue.
Whistler Olympic Park consists of 14km (approximately 9 miles) of competition trails, to be utilized for 22 cross-country skiing and biathlon events. One 4km loop makes up the trail system to be utilized for biathlon. In addition, there are 40-45km (25-30 miles) of warm-up and recreational trails next to the core Olympic area.
The elevation range is 840 to 930 meters (2755-3050 feet).
The shooting range is located directly opposite the biathlon stadium. This allows the maximum capacity of 12,000 people to see the targets from the same perspective as the biathletes.
After the 2010 Games, the Whistler Olympic Park will be owned and operated by the Whistler Legacies Society, which will also operate the Whistler Sliding Centre and part of the Whistler Athletes' Village.
