The latest picture I found on Instagram. Something is being done with the cauldron rampway

It's wither snow or white paint coat of some sort.

either*

and by the way, I can see some strings from the top coming down into the stage. Too bad the sides are not shown

ANd now for something entirely new and original -- the rehearsal tape of how the Final Lighters will climb that ramp (but without the torch yet!)  :-)   (Notice the Olympic colors of the outfits, except for black since Koreans and Japanese look down on black people).  ;-) 

 

It will be easier with the torch on a ski pole!!

will people near the cauldron see that confortable? Perhaps the external location of cauldron aren't so good for all.

:rolleyes:  You only need to look at it for a few seconds, jeez.  It's going to be there even AFTER the show.  :rolleyes:

Maybe this pic might give an idea of how it would look like from those seats.

Also new pic (though in low res) of the field. They're starting to cover/paint the central stage

Pic is old (from November 25) but it gives a nice complete view of the field.

Seeing it like that, I'd say it has the potential to be a pretty good performance space. Not small, but still relatively intimate.

Nice, updated photos from Google Maps.

They are starting to install one of the screens. Seems like the work on the Cablenet system is still going on hence why the right side is still not covered yet. The field is finally painted/covered in white.

Wheelchair spaces in an elevated position. Nice!

Presumably that means the building along that side includes a lift/elevator.

Nope.  That's what that slope by the cauldron, is for.   (Yeah, it's deceiving -- but life is full of surprises.)  

You gotta get in shape for the Paralympics!!   :lol:

Check between 0:00 and 0:19, and in 0:48 onwards. It's the structure from the pic @Waldi posted two pages ago. Dunno if those are props or just pavillions they're building around the stadium.

Close up, they look a bit too solid for props / stage sets. Maybe the beginnings of a drive-thru McDonalds?

I think it might be a park they will be building on the outskirts. Probably for the athletes/tourists who want to relax or take some pictures. Doubt they would had used traditional Dancheong style for a McDonalds :lol: 

Probably something like this

last look inside before it is closed to outsiders

That's what Sochi and Rio said. And I remember we got lots of Instagram pics the weeks before the opening (not even the dress rehearsal) :lol: 

Though I did noticed they are putting a white veil at both the main entrances at the side of the tribune. I guess that will make it much harder for people outside to take pictures.
