Anyone know how much terrain usually gets closed off to the public for the Winter Olympics? Obviously they have the olympic runs, but i assume they have training areas, and cordon off nearby areas? Is it best to avoid the Winter Olympics host resort if you just want to ski there?
You do not want to be at an Olympic host resort at the time of the Olympics. Not only will a portion of the mountain be closed off, but the whole entire place will be super-crowded. There will be gapers galore, and you will never be able to find elbow room. If you go just after the Olympics, however, the numbers should be super low. Or, just go somewhere that the Olympics aren't taking place. But, if you are bent on going to Whistler (I assume) then wait until after the Olympics.
What the fuck were you doing?! One looks like a failed abortion and the other like something from chicken run. [ski-plastic]
I said I got the flu from eating tacos at lunch. [onlyskierndak...]
not sure the full details of how they will try to manage the situation... they won't let anyone drive up to whistler during the olympics unless they can prove they live there, and therefor have a parking spot for their car. now i would like to think that if you manage to get your ass up to whistler a month or so before the olympics with a car, then they won't kick you out of town (maybe).
probably best to just avoid the place.
