A checkpoint will be set up north of Squamish to prevent vehicles from heading up to Whistler during the Olympic Games unless they have a permit.

VANOC, together with the Resort Municipality of Whistler and the Ministry of Transportation, will issue permits that will allow travel on the Sea to Sky Highway beyond the checkpoint at the Alice Lake Provincial Park turnoff between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., Feb. 11 to 28.

While vehicles traveling outside of those hours won’t need a permit, they do need to have parking confirmed.

Those applying have to verify they have a parking available in Whistler.

For information on obtaining a permit and locations of permit issuing offices go to www.whistler2010.com.
