About the course
Take advantage of the beautiful cross-country ski and biathlon trails at Whistler Olympic Park. The cross country races consist of multiple loops on mixed terrain (spikes not permitted), and they will follow set loops featuring the spectacular scenery of the Callaghan Valley and the facilities of the Whistler Olympic Park.
The Whistler Olympic Park is located 18 kms southwest of Whistler, 50 kms north of Squamish and 115 kms north of Vancouver, BC. From Highway 99, the centre of Whistler Olympic Park is located 10 kms up the new Callaghan Valley access road.
Consistently ranked the number one resort in North America; Whistler features two spectacular mountains, epic skiing (in-season), four championship golf courses, more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, accommodations galore, hiking trails, spas, and arguably the best mountain bike park in the world. In short, Whistler has everything you could possibly need for the time of your life – and so much more.
