This is what Cypress Mountain’s non-Olympic runs looked like on February 6. That’s what the snowcross and freestyle organizers are up against. Remember that when you see the white runs they compete on during the Games. Today it was sunny and 13 degrees celsius in downtown Vancouver. Usually there’s a 6-8 degree swing between temperatures in the city and temperatures on the city’s north shore peaks. Hard to keep snow from melting when the temperatures have been consistently a few degrees above freezing.
