Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

Latest IOC visit to Vancouver a success

On their latest visit to check progress in Vancouver, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) last week said it is satisfied that the organisers of the 2010 Winter Games have fixed two worrying problems. For more than a year, the IOC has been concerned that the Vancouver Organizing Committee (Vanoc) would not have enough rooms in the Whistler corridor for athletes, officials, technicians, and media. ...Since then, Vanoc officials have been busy finding alternative arrangements and double-checking the availability of every room and home in the area.

The IOC had also been concerned about the state of the Sea to Sky highway – a treacherous road linking Whistler with the Lower Mainland. Last week, for example, two serious crashes and a rock slide near Furry Creek closed the highway for hours at a time, serving to remind organisers that even with a $600-million upgrade, the highway remains a weak point in Olympic transportation plans.
But after 3 days of meetings with Vanoc officials, the IOC said it now believes it needs fewer rooms than expected, and that any serious road blockages on the highway will not interfere with the running of the event.
