BLOWN AWAY

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Northern Hemisphere Ski Holidays -

GAMES fever may have come and gone from Whistler Black­comb, but the spirit re­mains in the Olympic Plaza (with grassy lawns, per­for­mance spaces, mem­o­ra­bilia and the caul­dron), a last­ing legacy of the 2010 Van­cou­ver Win­ter Olympic and Par­a­lympic Games. The site of 100 vic­tory cel­e­bra­tions, it’s nes­tled in the vil­lage heart and forms a per­fect ad­junct to the Vil­lage Stroll from Lorimer Road to the base of the slopes. This pretty, car-free zone comes to life each win­ter as trees draped in fairy lights and dusted with snow de­fine a path through bustling shops, restau­rants and bars. More: whistler.ca.
