Winter Olympics without All the Snow

Hosted by

vancouver.jpgCanada has poured big money into the 2010 Winter Olympics, with high hopes of winning its first gold medal on home soil. But with competition scheduled to begin three weeks from today, it may take what amounts to a military effort to get enough snow to Cypress Mountain, a major venue 30 minutes from Vancouver. Where there is snow, two hours away at Whistler Mountain, there could be financial trouble. That's according to Bruce Constantineau, who covers business and sports for the Vancouver Sun.
