In this picture taken Friday Dec, 23, 2011, the empty artificial lake in Munich's Olympia Park is photographed, in background hills partly snow-covered. The International Ski Federation says it is canceling the World Cup competition planned for New Year's Day in Germany because of bad weather. FIS said Saturday Dec. 24, 2011 the event planned for the southern city of Munich is called off "due to lack of snow, too warm temperatures, rain and no positive weather forecast." It says the event will not be made up during the season. Another mini parallel giant slalom city event is scheduled to take place in Moscow on Feb. 21. Munich organizers say the 16 top female and the 16 top male athletes in the overall World Cup rankings were set to compete at the city's Olympic Park venue. (AP Photo/dapd/Joerg Koch) less
