As in Turin the Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver from the 12 to the 28 February 2010 will take place in various locations.

The area has 37 lifts, 3 glaciers and 180 miles long ski runs and is the largest ski-region in North America. The tournament for the free stylers and snow boarders will be taking place on Cypress Mountain, located about 18 miles away from Vancouver. The ice skating tournaments will be located in Vancouver itself. The opening and closing ceremonies will take place at the BC Place Stadium in Downtown Vancouver. There will be 11 tournament locations here in total.
The Saxony House will be opening its gates in the Vancouver Rowing Club, the oldest one of its kind in town. Its location directly next to the entrance of Stanley Park at Coal Harbour permits you to enjoy the stunning view of the city’s skyline and Canada Plaza in the heart of Vancouver:
