Weather still not co-operating

WHISTLER, B.C. -- It looks like a winter wonderland here in Whistler Tuesday morning which normally would be a good thing for a winter resort town.

Instead, the thick wet snow that fell overnight has once again forced delays in the schedule for the alpine events.

Officials cancelled today's super combined, which was scheduled to take place at Whistler Creekside, which has been the biggest trouble spot in the Games in terms of weather. Only one event has been contested thus far -- the men's downhill on Monday while several training sessions also have been scrapped.

The snowfall was much heavier near the top of both the men's and women's runs making conditions impossible.

"Due to heavy snowfall throughout the night and soft conditions on the lower track today's men's super-combined has been postponed," the International Ski Federation said in a release.

There is some good news on the horizon, however. The forecast is for a high pressure system to move into the area later today to create ideal racing conditions for the next seven days.

The next event scheduled to be run is Wednesday's women's downhill.
