Cool Runnings

The St. Moritz-Celerina Olympic Bobrun (known officially as the Olympia Bobrun St. Moritz-Celerina) is a bobsleigh track located in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Constructed in 1903, it officially opened on New Year’s Day 1904 and is the oldest bobsleigh track in the world and the only one that is naturally refrigerated. It is also used for other sliding sports, including skeleton and luge.  The track served as host to the bobsleigh events for both the 1928 and the 1948 Winter Olympics.

My hope was to not only visit the run, but to actually sign up for a ride down the track in a four man bobsled.  I was pretty excited…until I found out that the track was closed just like everything else in this town!!

So tonight as a reasonably good substitute and with nothing else to do, Debbie and I are watching one of our all time favorite movies.
