The Olympic Torch Has Been Lit!

On October 22nd, the Olympic Torch for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games was officially lit in Olympia, Greece. Since being lit in a traditional ceremony, the torch has been exchanged between representatives of the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games while traveling throughout the country of Greece. Tomorrow, October 30, the torch will leave Greece and make its way to North America and land in Victoria, British Columbia. From there, it will begin the 106-day journey across Canada in preparation for Olympic opening day on Friday, February 12, 2010.

The Olympics are a time to celebrate excitement, enthusiasm and progression in sports. It's a time to celebrate the coming together of countries and the outstanding performances of the world's best athletes. It's a time and an event that the entire world can enjoy.

With the winter sports of skiing and snowboarding both represented at the Winter Olympic Games, it's only fitting that we celebrate the Olympics here at Liberty! We'd like to celebrate with the athletes and the world by creating our own Olympic excitement and awareness at the resort. From February 12-28, we plan on holding various activities and events in conjunction with and in celebration of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. So until then, we encourage you to get a jump start on the Olympic excitement by following the interactive map of the torch's relay on the 2010 Winter Olympics website.

Before you know it, the torch's journey will end and the biggest and best celebration of sports like skiing and snowboarding will be at an all-time high! Become a fan of the Winter Olympics now! The season is not that far away...
