Every Olympic Games it's the same story. The host nation has a plan with all the expensive new facilities they are building once the Games have gone. However, more often than not, these same buildings end up abandoned for they are simply to big and too expensive to keep in decent standing for the local population.
As South Korea prepares to host the 2018 Winter Olympics in a raft of new sporting venues, the abandoned Alps Ski Resort, 60 miles away, stands in grim contrast, as the future of South Korea's new facilities remains uncertain.
When your home freezes

It is not known if these photographers are professionals or just amateurs posing as such, but is there anything wrong with what they are doing?

Riding the Slurpee waves of Nantucket
We're sticking with the cold for this one. Slurpee cold, in fact.
The temperature dropped to -11 degrees Celsius, cold enough for sea water to freeze and that is what happened at Nobadeer Beach in Nantucket.
Nick Hayden and Jamie Briard thought of nothing better to do than to put on their wetsuits and grab a board.
