As the 2018 Winter Olympics come to an end, The Financial Times is applauding a host city that turned gold medals into the real thing.

In Whistler, a ski town outside of Vancouver where the numerous events for the 2010 Winter Olympics were held, real estate has continued to skyrocket as snow conditions and more commercial development has kept the ski industry — spread over two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb — thriving.

Proof? An 8,000-square-foot chalet with nine bedrooms is going for a cool $15 million while a serviced apartment in the Four Seasons Whistler Resort is selling for $392,000. [FT]Erin Hudson
