Sochi To Host 2014 Winter Olympics

#1
It's just been announced by the 2014 IOC that the Russian resort of Sochi, on the Black Sea, is to host the 2014 Winter Olympics, beating the North Korean bid, and the European (Austrian) bid.

Clearly, this resort doesn't appear in any of the Crystal/Mark Warner/First choice ski brochures yet. But with the recent poor snow record in Europe (last season was totally crap in most resorts) is it likely that this resort will survive threats from global warming, and be the next fashionable destination?

Would you consider skiing in this sort of resort?

I suppose, that I'm the only person here that visited the place (btw many times). Moreover, I installed industrial automation system in local road tonnel (2.5 km) on the way to ski resort Krasnaya Polyana 2 years ago.
