Canadian army? Hardly. See who really keeps Whistler safe.
FOB, additional security.

Whistler Blackcomb is one of the safest places in Canada for the month of February. That said there are enough explosive scattered around the mountain to blow up the athlete’s village. As part of the additional security for the games, the WB ski patrol has instituted the FOB program. The FOB is an electronic key that records access information at all of the explosives bunkers around the mountain. This helps ski patrol keep a record of what is going on at each bunker.
