The Whistler Olympic and Paralympic Village is a 2010 Winter Olympics facility being constructed in the resort town of Whistler, British Columbia. The Olympic Village is considered one of Whistler's legacy projects, in that it will be used after the Olympics to help house and train Canadian athletes.[1] Whistler is one of the two host communities for the Games. The site of this athletes' village is in the Cheakamus Valley approximately 20 minutes south of the Whistler Mountain competition venues, and 6 km from the highway cutoff for the Whistler Olympic Park sliding events venue in the Callaghan Valley.

The village will hold 2,400 athletes and officials.[1] The athletes and officials housed in this village will participate in the events held at the Whistler Olympic Park, Whistler Creekside and the Whistler Sliding Centre.[1] The cost of the village is estimated at 32 million dollars. When completed the campus will consist of a 100-room lodge and a 20-unit townhouse complex.[1]
