KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) — Alpine skiers arriving at the Olympics are amazed by the lift facilities at the Rosa Khutor resort. And they say the security isn’t nearly as much of a bother as they expected.

One of the only complaints so far is that there isn’t much in the way of training slopes.

And there is no yogurt for breakfast in the athletes village.

Aksel Lund Svindal says, “That’s kind of my go-to thing every morning – muesli and natural yogurt – so I don’t get too much sugar. That seems to be a hard thing to track down.”

Official men’s and women’s downhill training sessions don’t start until Thursday, so skiers were only allowed on a tight training slope Wednesday.

Julia Mancuso says, “There’s nowhere to really ski.”
