Sochi Olympics Already Bringing In Disappointingly Small Crowds!

Filed under: ZportzOlympicsSnow Sports

sochi olympics have small crowd for qualifying events

The opening ceremonies for the 2014 Sochi Olympics don't kick off until tonight, however, there have already been a handful of qualifying events for the winter games over the past couple of days!

The only problem is, nobody seems to be showing up!!

Yesterday marked the first day of the slopestyle snowboarding event, and the stands were noticeably empty from beginning to end!

Those who did attend the event said the crowd was mostly Russian and there wasn't a huge international presence, and weather DEFINITELY wasn't a factor as it was sunny skies all day!!

Of course as we pointed out, these are simply qualifying events that take place before the opening ceremony tonight. However, the small crowds don't seem to be a good sign for a winter olympics that's already been plagued with issues!!

It looks like Shakira might have a bright future as an Olympic coach!!

OK, so it might be a bit of a stretch to say she'd make a good trainer. However, Olympic snowboarder Lindsey Jacobellis did reveal that the sexy Colombian singer helps her

Aaron Paul, Kellan Lutz, And MORE Celebs Hit The Slopes At Oakley Learn To Ride With AOL Event!

With all of the red carpets, press junkets, and sitting in movie theaters, the Sundance Film Festival can be a LOT of work for some of Hollywood's brightest stars!

That's why a few of them decided to take a much deserved break from all of the glitz and glamour and suited up to hit the slopes in Park City, Utah for the afternoon!

Hollywood hotties Aaron Paul and Kellan Lutz both grabbed some snowboards and gear, courtesy of Oakley and New Era, and decided to do their best Shaun White impressions at the Oakley Learn to Ride with AOL event!

But they certainly weren't alone as they were joined by fellow actors Adrian Grenier and Krysten Ritter as well as well as the smokin' hot models Ireland Baldwin and Chanel Iman!

Wow! We guess all that star power couldn't fit on the big screen, so they had to go to a more fitting location instead. Like an entire mountain! LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out more pics from the fun times (below)!

Seal Takes A Tumble While Hitting The Slopes In Mammoth With His Boys!

But, did you know, that when it snows, Seal's eyes become large and light from the slopes can be seen??

Or, you know, something like that!!

This week, Seal decided to ring in the new year with a little bit of snow as he headed to Mammoth Mountain in California with his sons Henry, 7, and Johan, 8!

He was having a pretty good time on Monday when he ran into none other than Gwen Stefani and shared a kiss (from a rose) with the pop rock princess as he and his boys hit the slopes.

He and his sons were taking their time learning the tricks of the trade in their private lessons, which made the proud poppa decide to hit the slopes with a friend to show off his impressive snowboarding skills!

Unfortunately, Seal might have been a little too confident in his abilities as he also tried to take on cameraman duties and whipped out his phone to film the downhill action, and he got a little distracted and took a tumble!

Ouchie!

Maybe he should focus more on the slopes and less on the tiny screen on his phone next time! LOLz!

Julianne And Derek Hough Have A Sibling Snowboarding Shopping Spree!

Julianne Hough and Derek Hough were spotted shopping together at Burton snowboards in El Lay!

Guess when you're as fit as sister/brother Julianne and Derek Hough, taking family outings to buy snowboards ain't no big deal!

The dynamic duo were shopping at Burton Snowboards in sunny El Lay over the weekend, where, believe it or not, there is some quality snowboarding not far from the city.

They were checking out all sorts of cool snowboarding gear, with Julianne taking a look at some googles as Derek flaunted his muscly arms.

We wonder what they ended up leaving with… maybe they each got brand new snowboards!!

We can totes picture them shredding down a mountain together, carving some sweet gnar gnar, having a blast in the fresh powder.

Though hopefully Derek would dress a little warmer on the mountain. LOLz!

Now this is how you pass some time!

On Thursday, Justin Bieber was spotted snowboarding in Switzerland's Hoch-Ybrig ski region, and taking into mind that Drake Bell just bashed the singer's writing skills, we're surprised that he was out having some fun.

However, because he knows he has to prove his haters wrong, the Biebz let us know that he can enjoy himself and also werk his butt off.

The 19-year-old sensation tweeted:
