Report Berne almost hosted 2010? in Past Bids Discussion Posted March 19, 2013 There was no way the entire 2010 Games were going to be relocated because of the snow problems at one venue. Whistler had lots of snow that year. Cypress didn't (well, they did in March, but that was too late). If the conditions got so horrible that Cypress had to be shut down completely, I'm sure they would have found an alternate venue for those events, but not a complete alternate host. Heck, I'm sure they could have even moved it up to Whistler, although probably without seating. The village was very busy during the Games, but the two mountains there were not so busy and they are HUGE and they were covered with snow.
