Methinks some venues have done much better with Calgary Winter Olympics 1988 now a national training center and part of a University campus.

It may be early on Vancouver but much of the infrastructure is now imbedded in the transportation system of a massively growing city and Whistler is now a world class winter resort where my ski bum grandsons occasionally spend weekends with their ski bum parents. They actually have ski slopes just 15 minutes drive from their West Vancouver home but Whistler is a special treat.
