Lack of Snow at Cypress means less practice time for snowboarders

This past Saturday, about 50 trucks were shipping snow to Cypress Mountain.
This is all due to the lack of snow on the mountain from the surprisingly mild winter tempertures Vancouver has been experiencing these past few months.

Now, however, there are more extreme measures being taken.

Vanoc decided to cut off two practice days for the halfpipe snowboarders to help snow stay on the mountain, although Tim Gayda, the vice-president of Sport for Vanoc says that this should have no affect on the athletes.

Hopefully it doesn't!
