Quick Whistler weather update

A weather update from Whistler: It's not snowing. It's not raining. It looks like they're actually going to race!

This might be the most stunning development of the Olympics thus far. The men's downhill, originally scheduled for Saturday, is due to start at 10:30 a.m. PST. The women will train for downhill at 10 a.m. and then again at 1 p.m., after the men have competed.

There is another weather system lingering off in the Pacific, and it appears there will be more snow and/or rain on Tuesday, when the men's super combined is scheduled to be held. That race just might be Bode Miller's best chance for a medal here.

But if they're able to race Tuesday, get ready for some serious ski activity - seven races, seven medal events, in the next seven days. The forecast clears up after Tuesday and should allow officials to get back on schedule.
