The Green Olympics

Because of warm weather and too little snow, Cathy Preistner-Allinger of VANOC says they will use wood and straw in place of snow on the Cypress Mountain venues. They also plan to bring in snow from elsewhere, using helicopters and other equipment to spread the imported white stuff.

They are not worried about the cost impact. They will save money because, with no precipitation on the mountain, they won't spend any money sweeping snow from the bleachers.
