Whistler Nordic Development Centre
The Whistler Nordic Development Centre (WNDC) at Whistler Olympic Park is a designated full-time training hub for athletes who are committed to the high performance pathway and the pursuit of future success in competition. Lead by Head Coach Etienne Letondeur, the WNDC supports this pursuit through its unique high performance planning process and development and by facilitating sport services that are in alignment with athlete goals and targeted objectives.
WNDC athletes can live, train and even work with Whistler Sport Legacies. The Whistler Athletes’ Centre campus enables them to grow in an exciting multi-sport environment, and to train with carded competitors from numerous disciplines in the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific’s High Performance Centre. Furthermore, as a diverse organization, Whistler Sport Legacies offers athletes interesting opportunities to supplement their growth and income through sport-related employment.
For any questions on the WNDC, please contact Etienne Letondeur by email or phone at 604-966-7207.
