Venues map for Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games hosting concept
A concept to host the 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games in British Columbia has been revealed.
Members of the public are invited to share their thoughts about the vision for and future legacy of a 2030 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games hosted in British Columbia by completing a short survey.
The map below provides a quick look at where competition and non-competition venues would be located.
Many venues used for Vancouver 2010 – some of which were newly built for those Games while others were already existing – would once again play host to Olympic and Paralympic competitions and celebrations.
This includes three competition venues in Whistler:
- Whistler Creekside (alpine skiing – speed events, para snowboard)
- Whistler Sliding Centre (bobsleigh, skeleton, luge)
- Whistler Olympic Park (biathlon, cross-country skiing, ski jumping, Nordic combined, para Nordic skiing)
It includes four competition venues on the lower mainland:
- Richmond Olympic Oval (long track speed skating)
- UBC Thunderbird Arena (ice hockey, para ice hockey)
- Rogers Arena (ice hockey)
- Pacific Coliseum (figure skating, short track speed skating)
In addition, BC Place would host Opening and Closing Ceremonies once again. The Vancouver Convention Centre would be the site of the Main Press Centre and International Broadcast Centre.
The Agrodome, an existing venue near the Pacific Coliseum in Hastings Park, would host curling and wheelchair curling.
A temporary venue for the big air events in freestyle skiing and snowboard would be constructed at the Hastings Racecourse near the Pacific Coliseum and Agrodome.
All other Olympic freestyle skiing and snowboard events would be held at the Sun Peaks Resort, which has recently hosted national level competitions in both sports.
A new stadium and courses would be constructed at Whistler Ptarmigan for alpine skiing technical events as well as para alpine skiing.
