Most Costly Winter Olympics May Not Have Enough Snow

100 days and counting till the Winter Olympics in Russia but you need snow. With Sochi being known as a summer resort, will there be enough snow?

The Winter games in Russia is costing over $50 Billion, the most expensive in the history of the Olympics but it’s no secret this part of Russia is not known for being a winter megatron. In fact, Russia has been so concerned about the lack of snow, they actually started saving snow in 2012.

They have kept about 450,000 cubic yards of snow under insulated blankets. Really? That is 16 million cubic feet of snow.  On top of the 2012 snow they have saved, they are also running 200 snow machines pulling water out of local lakes to try and make enough snow.

Will this be another Vancouver or worse?
