Welcome To Vancouver – Home of the 2010 Winter Olympic

In less than two weeks, my home city of Vancouver will host the 2010 Winter Olympic. The city is ready for its biggest event since Expo 86. There is an excitement in the air that I haven’t felt in a long time. Vancouver has consistently won best city in the world to the live in titles from many organizations and the world is about to find out why.

For those coming to the games, Vancouver and I welcome you. Let me show you a little preview on what you can expect when you land in our fair city. The video below is an artistic collaboration between Innerlife Project and TimeLapseHD. It was filmed along the same time as when I filmed living above the clouds. Welcome to Vancouver!

    Is it true you’re having to import snow?

    1. Tyler says:

      They are driving in snow, making snow and helicoptering in snow for Cypress Mountain which is the Venue for the Snowboard Half-Pipe, Snowboardcross, Ski cross and Free-style aerials.

      Whistler on the other hand has 32ft of snow and boy is it awesome conditions up there!

      1. Paul B says:

        32ft! Can’t they skim a bit off and send it over to Cypress Mountain? ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Boy that one is really a dream land.

    Awesome video … should and must watch in HD

      Where the h… have you been boy? I’ve got friends in Vancouver and pictures are beginning to pour in my email inbox.

      The video is awesome although I think the cloud/fog effect may have been overdone a bit. Makes one feel like pre-viewing Vancouver under the 2012 flood.

  8. I’m glad to call this place my home!

    They sure contrasted the hell out of the colors in that video though. Looks good I must say.

  9. I’m sure the traffic and trying to get around in Vancouver will be lots of fun while the Olympics are there.

    1. Yes this is a golden opportunity to promote tourism as well.

      Vancouver is certainly one of the most beautiful city of world.

    1. Why don’t you visit in the period of Olympic. Yes may be during those days you will have to pay extra money for lodging because of Olympic.

  12. Great video. I am in Ontario! Go Canada!

  15. John, you’re a very lucky guy to live in a Olympic city. I was hoping Chicago will win the 2016. Oh, well. I will be in London in 2012 as I often go to London to visit my uncle.

  16. Great Video

    Sweet stuff, I liked the video. It was awsum.

  21. Can’t wait for the Games to begin, and I’m really looking forward to the coverage that the city gets (and deserves).

    Hi John, the Winter Olympics are one of the best events in the world, Vancouver is lucky to have them. I was in the Turin Olympics in Italy in 2006 and had the best time ever: great people from all over the world to support their country and enjoy sports: amazing combination that fuels an unforgettable atmosphere. Wish I could be there this year, but it’s a bit far from Sydney….

  23. You’re lucky! What a great video.

    I guess I’m out of the loop, I didn’t even know where the Winter games were located this time around.

  24. Vancouver is a wonderful city for holiday.thanks John!

  25. its a wonderful pace……have fun
