As Russia's city of Sochi gears up for the winter Olympics, some of the biggest stars of winter sports have gathered at the resort to test out the slopes. The resort is hosting a leg of the Alpine Skiing World Cup. Preparing pistes for the race was a challenge due to sudden heavy fog and blizzard. But organizers got everything ready in time, and the weather too eventually favored the event, RT's Denis Bolotsky reports.
