The bobsled track in Cesana, which will also be used for skeleton and luge, is in the process of receiving its first layer of ice.

The ski jumping facility, in Pragelato, is also complete; and will host a World Cup event February 11-12.

All of the venues for Alpine and Nordic skiing are also ready.

The building agency said "final touches" were being made to the Palavela arena in Turin that will host a short track skating event January 14-16 and the European figure skating championships January 24-30.

The Turin Olympics will be held February 10-26, 2006.
