Sochi Winter Scenes

I think this warning sign says it all - at the Rosa Khutor Alpine Resort, near Krasnaya Polyana and Sochi, Russia

The Rosa Khutor will be the host site for most of the skiing and snow boarding competitions in 2014.

Populous has announced that it has been selected to design the main stadium for the 2014 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia. The 40,000 seat pebble-shaped design will feature several sustainable factors including a shimmering crystalline skin. Its sweeping form responds to both its coastal location and mountainous backdrop, whilst its translucent skin engages with its surroundings by day, and provides an iconic representation of the color and spectacle of the games when illuminated at night.
