MOSCOW, January 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Weather Service (Gidromedtsentr) reported on Monday that the Black Sea city of Sochi had enough snow for hosting the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.
“Fortunately, snow has fallen out early this year. With the Olympic Games starting in three weeks, we can say that there is enough snow at all the Olympic facilities,” Roman Vilfand, the director of the Russian Weather Service, said. He added that another snowfall was expected in Sochi the next three or four days.
Russia’s chief weather man noted that professional athletes preferred artificial snow because it was more homogenous than the natural one.
“That is why a layer of artificial snow will be applied on top of natural snow,” Vilfand explained.
