The women's downhill competition of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics was held at Whistler Creekside in Whistler, British Columbia on February 17, 2010.

The women's downhill course runs on the top part of Wildcard, then the bottom of Jimmy's Joker, then finishes out of the valley on Lower Franz's Run. Finally the course merges with the Dave Murray Downhill at the Grandstand finish.

The course was labelled as extremely difficult for skiers and most training runs were cancelled due to weather conditions. This resulted in several accidents during the competition. The worst accident involved Swedish skier Anja Pärson, who lost balance on the last jump before the finish, which resulted in 60-metre (200 ft) flight and subsequent fall, however without serious health consequences.[1] Earlier in the same place Swiss skier Dominique Gisin fell.[2] Pärson would return the very next day to win the bronze in the super combined.
