Snow big deal? Officials show no weather worries

The IOC looks for any number of qualities in selecting a host city for a winter Olympics. But one has to presume at least one attribute would be, um, snow. And in Vancouver these days, um, not so much.

However, despite growing concerns and continued forecasts of temperatures in the low 50s, organizers say there are no plans to move the snowboard and freestyle skiing events from their scheduled site of Cypress Mountain.

"We have no intention from moving from that venue," Tim Gayda, the Vancouver Organizing Committee's (VANOC) vice president for sport, told reporters during a special briefing on the situation. "Things are well at Cypress and we have things in hand," he said.
