I know winter sports are quite popular viewing with some of us as a sort of Eurosport crossover outside the cycling season. Having been watching quite a bit over the last few weeks it's lucky the Olympics are in Russia as the a lot of the cross country venues so far have been lacking snow. Asiago (Italy) on at the moment and seems to be relying on imported / man made snow although there's a bit on the surrounding hills. Val Gardena for the Alpine was looking a bit short as well. French alps seem to have a decent covering though.

Anyone else watching much? It will be time to start a Girls of the Winter Olympics thread in BB soon, alpine skiing in particular seems to have more than its fair share of good looking girls.

    I thought it was too...

    (they had the Flame Relay in the city I was in, but I'm assuming that's going all over)

    my winter sport of choice relies on an indoor and very man-made ice rink. The hockey will go ahead so therefore I'm not one bit worried.

    I'm annoyed that Bobsleigh/Skeleton has been dropped by Eurosport. That's my winter sport of choice. Thankfully it is still available, live, on Youtube. But, the quality of coverage isn't the same.

    The women's Skeleton competition is fantastic. Not only are they great to look at, there are about 5 or 6 girls that could win it every week. We have the World Cup leader, Lizzy Yarnold, and she is a bookies favorite for a medal in Sochi. Unfortunately, the American Noelle Pikus-Pace returned at the end of last season and is in blistering form. She has to the the absolute favorite.
