Olympic Plaza

northern area


The Whistler Olympic Plaza is a venue for outdoor concerts during the summer months and ice-skating during the winter months. It is a common place for the community to enjoy lunch, enjoy recreational activities, or simply relax with breathtaking views.

The plaza was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics and was designed for individuals all over the world to enjoy.

The Whistler Olympic Plaza is the very spot where athletes received their medals at the nightly victory ceremonies.

Today, the artwork and Olympics memorabilia makes it an attractive place to visit. The Olympic Lightning Figure totem that towers over the plaza honours the Olympic legacy and pays homage to the Squamish and Lil’wat people.
