Vancouver's Green Olympics

Cypress Mountain

Official Venue for Freestyle Skiing and Snowboarding
It needs some snow!

I opposed the bid for the Games because I think it's a bad investment. However, after having spent the enormous amount of money for this circus I hope they will be a success.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

The Games will be held Feb. 12 to Feb. 28 and organizers are thinking of using helicopters to transport some snow from the top of the mountain to the venues. That wouldn't be in line with the boast of the Games being the most environmentally friendly. (This is not to deny the laudable efforts which are made in that direction.)
