On August 12th 2012, the curtain will fall on the London Summer Olympics. Much has been said about the legacy of the games and how it could benefit the city and its population, but only time will tell if this can be achieved. One place London could learn from is Whistler in British Columbia, Canada. The resort was host to the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, and they are proud of the lasting impact the events have had.
Nestled in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, just 75 miles north of Vancouver, award-winning Whistler features a mountain village unique for its alpine charm, relaxed West Coast ambiance and breathtaking scenery. While Whistler is frequently rated the Number One Ski Resort in North America, the resort is just as lively in the summer.
