Olympic fiasco?

Despite using bales of straw to fortify Olympic ski courses at Cypress Mountain, organizers are now trucking snow from a provincial park peak about 250 kilometres away to replenish dwindling snow supplies and make it look good for TV.
Snow has been melting off the peak faster than organizers can make it, and last month VANOC closed the resort entirely to focus on making snow and getting the courses ready for snowboarding and freestyle skiing events.
