Just click on this link to see how the Fortress is crumbling and what that will mean to all the above. VANOC has made lots of claims about financing the 2010 Winter Games and this bit of uber bad news may become their Dieppe.

I guess David Emerson got out of it all just in time, hunhhhh!

  1. Somehow I think the rich still have a lot of money to spend, and though skier visits might dip a bit, there will still be enough to keep the place afloat.

    I think the real threat to the Olympics is the gamble they’re taking on something as simple as the weather. I grew up near Squamish. I recall winters when there was so little snow at Whistler, it wasn’t worth the trip. Either two warm to snow or simply too dry. It hasn’t been the case lately, but who’s to say it won’t happen again?
