49 of 50 US states wake up to snow

Snow has covered the majority of states in the US, making almost all of the huge country a skier's paradise. Some 49 out of 50 states have snow on the ground with Hawaii being the one exception. The Global Snow Lab is looking at records to find out if there has ever been snow on the same day in all US states. Meanwhile, Winter Olympics organisers have postponed the men's downhill skiing competition until Monday due to a slushy conditions on the course. The blue riband event had been scheduled for Saturday at Whistler Creekside. But a combination of rain, snow, fog and temperatures that have been too warm have turned the slopes to slush making them too dangerous to be used. The first women's event was scheduled to be the super-combined on Sunday but that was postponed for the same reasons.
