Whistler's weather could send skiing downhill
Looking forward to the alpine skiing next month in Vancouver? You might need to be patient. Gian-Franco Kasper, the president of the International Ski Federation (FIS), has serious concerns about whether the weather will allow the events to take place in a timely fashion. Whistler Resort, the site of the alpine events, sits near the Pacific Ocean, a location that has wreaked havoc on World Cup events in the past.
From 1996 to 1998, the World Cup circuit came to Whistler and failed to get a single race off each time. It wasn't just canceling a particular downhill or super-G, it was a matter of scrapping entire weekends.
"I personally am really worried," Kasper told the Associated Press.
