I can't believe that in only 365 days, Vancouver is going to be hosting the next winter games. Vancouver is part of what we affectionately call "sea to sky country" where you can roller blade on the sea wall in the morning, have lunch on the patio and in 30-45 minutes later be boarding a chair lift to go skiing. Vancouver is partnering with the incredible dual mountains of Whistler-Blackcomb located 2 hours away for the Alpine events. These mountains boast the longest ski runs in North America as well as the home of the famous creation of the Fortress of Solitude scene in Season 4 of Smallville when Clark throughs the crystal. Closer to home just 30 minutes from downtown on Cypress Mountain is where the freestyle and snowboarding will occur. Just down the road from where I used to live they have built this fantatstic venue for the speedskating! The Olympic Torch was revealed today for the first time and it seems my BF's collegues have been busy making it :) Am I going back home during the games? Try and stop me *grin*.
Behind the cut I've placed an official 2010 Video showcasing Vancouver and a picture of me by the official countdown clock.
