Unseasonably warm weather forced the first ski cross training session in the Caucasus mountains to be cancelled on Friday, Reuters reported.
Temperatures touched 15C on Friday afternoon.
It's starting. Some freestyle skiing training events cancelled or delayed because of warm weather at #Sochi2014. Feels like spring here.

“Given the high temperatures and thermal stress on the SX [ski cross] course, it is not wise to train today,” FIS race director Joseph Fitzgerald said in a statement.
