An event hasn’t happened until the Guardian prints at least three different opinion pieces on it: one extolling its virtues, one dismissing it as a waste of taxpayers’ money and one that’s a recipe for flan loosely based on the story.

Whilst some writers seemed to love the snowboarding, “youthful boarders framed against brilliant blue skies in dazzling sunshine to a soundtrack of Fatboy Slim,” but others had less positive views.
