Winter TechDVD - 2011
In this fast-paced program, go behind the scenes of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and experience first hand one of the most tech-driven sporting events in history. Watch as Olympic organizers race against the clock to build awe-inspiring stadia, expand transportation and security systems, and add futuristic touches to the ultimate icon of the games - the Olympic torch. Meanwhile, learn how snow guns on the peaks of Whistler turned 39 million gallons of water into a perfect blanket of snow, and how high-tech training tools helped some U.S. Olympic hopefuls gain a competitive edge. Take in breathtaking views from the world's highest unsupported gondola and rocket down a lightning-fast bobsled track at 80 miles per hour.
