“$10 for what?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

Having been to Park City during the summer we visited the Olympic Park there and it was excellent (and free). So when they wanted to charge me $10 to get in here I asked "what do I get for that?". Answer - you get to look around and for another $10 do some shooting. I said no thanks and left with $10 (or $20) still in my pocket.

“Nice to say "I've been there"”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

We were going to whistler and decided that it was essential to pop over to the Olympic park. We went there towards the end of the summer so there was no snow but it was nice to see the ski jump, shooting range and the end of the cross-country course. Entry was $10 for two of us which is reasonable.

Not going to take your breath away in the summer but definitely worth a visit.

“not a lot to look at”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

interesting to see the ski jump and the shooting range (where you could have a go for a fee), but $10 was a bit steep for what was essentially a quick drive up and down - if you were hiking for day, then probably worth it

“Don't miss the biathlon shooting visitors can try.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013 via mobile

Entrance is $10 and you can see the ski jumps used for the Olympic of 2010. But the best happens if you keep driving further into the park where you can actually shoot a .22 riffle on the targets used for the biathlon during the Olympics. Yes you get to shoot the gun under supervision. $10 for 5 bullets and then $5 for any additional magazine of 5 bullets. No experience required, Wayne will walk you through operating the gun and assist you all along. It is safe, secure and just pure awesome. A definite must do!!!

“Inclusive Park is Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

What's not to like? Inclusive park for all abilities; concert area (and the free concert on Labour Day Saturday was fun!), various places to eat, all cloaked with the beatiful back drop of Whistler Mountain...amazing!
