In just a few days, the 2010 Winter Olympics events in Vancouver and Whistler will be kicking off. The world’s best skiers and snowboarders will be taking to the slopes at Whistler Mountain, tearing down the mountain at world record speeds or gracefully navigating a slalom course. “You can view the terrain in stunning 3D detail in Google Earth, and we recently added 3D models for all 9 competition venues.
