Back in 1966, just 527 people called Whistler home. Today, almost 10,000 folks are permanent residents, and up to 30,000 people are here on any given day. During the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, you can add an extra 10,000 to 58,000 spectators per day to those numbers. Whew! Just think of all the fleece and Gore-Tex.—Sheri Radford
