premium very high. The venue is the Snozone indoor

of you who have been hiding under sporting rock
for the last few months can’t have failed to notice
the build up to the Games that start in under
a months time on February 8th. The official game
of the games, Salt Lake 2002, features six of
the best events that will be featured during the
four yearly shindig in the snow, all recreated
in amazing detail. Just to make you feel like
you are really there, all of the event locations
have been recreated so accurately, they’re within

of the launch event? To show the specially selected
journalists just how lifelike the game is, the
Milton Keynes Snozone was selected so the hacks

Salt Lake 2002 is due for release on January 18th
2002 and you can find out more information about
