Slalom is on at Whistler for Vonn's final event



Despite snow and fog up at Whistler Mountain, Canadian TV is reporting that the Olympic ladies slalom, the final Alpine skiing event for women, will go off as scheduled today.

The first run, with U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn competing despite a broken right pinkie finger in the giant slalom, will start at 11 a.m. Mountain time. After the field of 87 skiers finishes, there will be a break followed by the final run this afternoon.

The men's slalom is scheduled for Saturday, and the weather forecast is better for that.
