Whistler was originally conceived as part of a bid to host the 1968 Winter Olympics. Although the bid was ultimately unsuccessful, construction began and the resort opened in 1966. After years of expansions and a merger with Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler was awarded the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in association with Vancouver.
