Congratulations to Sochi 2014 for this correct and proper contingency planning. During Vancouver, the incompetency and general mismanagement of that organizing committee wound up costing significant un-budgeted monies to 'truck' snow from other cities to Cypress Mountain during the games. Well done Sochi 2014! You have learned from the mistakes of others.
