Spectators will be able to get up-close and personal with the athletes from three different viewing areas: ski down Sundance to the fenceline at the top of the course and watch the start of each race (it will be a slight hike back up to the intersection of Sundance and Kyle’s to ski back to the Village); enjoy great sight lines along the eastern fence by entering TELUS Park through the Rhonda Lake Return entrance; or, access the finish corral by skiing through TELUS Park or down Kyle’s or Highway 33. The finish corral can also be accessed by foot at Monashee Corner by the Fire Hall – volunteer marshals will be on site to ensure a safe crossing.
During training, qualifying and race events, Sundance Run will be closed. From Monday, January 27, the TELUS Park Chair will be closed to the public – however TELUS Park will be open, with access from Millie’s Mile and Rhonda Lake Road. Some features will be off-limits to make space for spectators.
Media will be set up at the finish line by the Water Treatment Plant.
