Default snow for the Olympics

Is there any snow for the Olympics? I saw something fast on the news
that the half pipe had no snow.
Any information?

Apparently the alpine events are fine, great snow. For some reason they
put the goofy events (pipe, skiercross, etc) down in the flats and now
are surprised there's little natural snow.

Practically this means they must truck in hundreds of tons of snow,
which naturally once in place will trigger copious natural snowfall just
as in previous Olympics.
