The Subaru IRONMAN® Canada is just days away. The hard yards and training has come to an end and the athletes are getting ready to take on the course through Whistler's sparkling lakes and winding mountain roads.
Just hours after Crankworx Whistler wrapped up for another year the Subaru IRONMAN® Canada trucks started rolling into Whistler Village. The transformation of Whistler Olympic Plaza this week has been amazing. From a dirt pumptrack on Thursday August 15 for Crankworx to the Ironman Village which opened its doors on August 22.
Remember that if you are traveling in the Whistler or Pemberton area that you will need to consider the traffic impacts over the weekend, click here for more information.

Favorite Spot in Whistler
We go to Whistler a ton as a family to bike and have stayed at a ton of spots in the village and the Crystal is definitely our favorite. Can't beat the location and by far they have the best staff and service in town. Going above and beyond to make our family and dog feel welcomed. The one bedroom suites with vaulted ceilings feel very private and spacious. Also during noisy times when the village is going crazy late night, the rooms are extremely quiet which is a must for us.
