Yeah, I love to ski and really enjoy watching the slaloms, as well as Luge and skeleton events etc.

I seem to be the only one who is excited about watching the Winter Olympics, my famo and my girlfriend and her famo ain't interested, someone even remarked skiing was for gays, wtf.

Lousy snow at the moment on Cypress mountain for the freestyle and snowboarding events. They're having to bring is in from elsewhere. Whistler is ok. We were there last April and they were very worried about a lack of decent snow.

Not as exited as i'll be to see the last 5 seconds of the closing ceremony but hey whatever floats your boat.

I like that one where they ski down a hill with loads of humps in it - have no clue what it's called tho but always fun to watch.

Also think the Luge is fun to watch just for the little costume they wear on their little sledge and their feet flapping about when they're on the way down. Unfortunately don't get to watch a lot of it tho, boo for that.

No....

Yeah i think the winter olympics are usually better than the summer one.
I really like watching the Speed Skating. The Koreans are cool, just waiting at the back of the pack the whole race, and then the last two laps they just explode in speed and win the race by miles

Yeah it's pretty mild and quite a few cracks are appearing in the ice:

what about when we got a 3rd place in slalom a few years ago?

Chemmy and some of the snowboarders have a good chance of a top 10.

also look out for our rising stars in the other skiing events.

Given that our governing body snowsport GB went into administration last week and the lack of government funding the winter sports get due to it all being diverted to things like athletics for London 2012 we are doing a damm good job of even having people out there.

If the we get our funding sorted the likes of Chemmy, Ed, Dave and TJ will have a great chance in Russia 2014.
