"Long-term weather forecast is not favorable. Until Christmas it is supposed to be too warm," said the Chief of Competitions in Nové Město Vlastimil Jakes. Snow cannons stopped on Thursday, two hours after midnight. While the temperature swung above zero, the snow cannons started to squirt only water.
"We will leave the snow in the tray and won't touch it. If we moved it to the race track, it would probably partly melt down which is obviosly the thing we want to avoid. But we are happy with our stadium, which is already partially white. And also some more spots on the race track started to look better with the artificial snow laying there. Our local young guns can already polish their skiing style and that makes us a bit happier," said Jakes.
