one of the events, local organizers will need a budget of between $600,000 and $1 million."Hopefully the Callaghan can pick up one of those weekends," Holland said. "That requires coming up with a good business model, a culture there that can handle putting the event on."The long track speedskating ice has been removed from the Richmond Oval, put can be replaced if needed.

A short distance away, the arena where curler Kevin Martin Air Max Blue And Red was crowned Olympic champion is being converted into a skating rink and the walls are going up on a new curling club.At Rogers Arena, the Canucks are in the midst of their NHL season, playing on the same ice where Sidney Crosby sent a nation into delirium with his overtime goal to win Olympic hockey gold.In the 10 months since the flame was extinguished at the Vancouver Olympics, the Games venues are still a going concern. While a few will likely host elite competitions in the future, others have been turned into community facilities and may never see another international event."In almost every case it's working exactly as we hoped for," John Furlong, the man who headed the Vancouver organizing committee, said in a recent interview."As an organizing committee we took the sustainability for Olympic venues to a completely different place than we've seen in the past," said Furlong. "In Turin (host of the 2006 Winter Games), some of those venues simply were dismantled immediately. In some cases, the venue is no longer used for sport. In our case, they are all used for sport."VANOC spent $580 million building new venues or upgrading existing facilities for the 2010 Olympics. Furlong believes taxpayers are receiving a fair return on their investment with facilities that offer public recreation while developing future elite athletes."We have given the public who paid for these venues good and fair access to them so they can enjoy them as well," he said.Others don't share Furlong's enthusiasm.Chris Shaw, a UBC neuroscientist, was a vocal opponent of the Games. He questions how much the public will really use the venues."Can they be a thing the people will use? Yes," said Shaw. "Are they the thing people would have chosen, based on priorities? Probably not."Are they things most of us are going to use? Probably not."Among the venues built specifically for the Games, the Whistler Sliding Centre ($104.9 million), Whistler Olympic Park ($119.7 million), and the Richmond Olympic Oval (VANOC contributed $63.3 million toward the building's $178 million cost) carried the biggest price tags.A $110 million fund was created to help finance operation of these venues after the Games.The rugged sliding centre, built on Blackcomb Mountain, was home to bobsled, luge and skeleton. The Olympic Park, located in the pristine Callaghan Valley about 20 kilometres southwest of Whistler, hosted cross country skiing, ski jumping and biathlon.The Richmond Oval, with its eye catching wooden ceiling and breathtaking view of the North Shore Mountains, has been transformed from the Olympic long track speedskating site to a multi sport recreational centre.More than 1,500 people have bought memberships and around 3,000 people visit the oval each month. Canada's national basketball teams played exhibition games in the building this fall.It has hosted the world wheelchair rugby championships and is a centre of excellence for Hockey Canada, Volleyball Canada and the Canadian Chinese table tennis foundation.The three ice sheets at UBC's Thunderbird Arena, which hosted women's hockey, are now busy with university games and community leagues.For those who want to play outside, the 90 kilometres of trails at Whistler Olympic Park make it one of the largest cross country ski facilities in North America. It attracts local skiers and has began a marketing campaign in Europe.After Christmas, adrenaline junkies will be able to get their fix at the Whistler Sliding Centre.

A report by coroner Tom Pawlowski, released in October, recommended an independent safety audit be done on the track."That's something we are doing," said Keith Bennett, chief executive officer of Whistler Sport Legacies, which oversees operation of the sliding centre. "An independent strategy audit will take place over the next year or so."A luge World Cup is planned for Whistler Air Max 95 Womens Shoes
