LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Even with temperatures well above freezing, there was enough ice for the U.S. bobsled, skeleton and luge teams to start training Monday on their home track on Mount Van Hoevenberg.Luge Olympian Tucker West took the first official run, with the air temperature around 50 degrees. Forecasts call for highs to reach the 70s in the Adirondack Mountains on Tuesday, though temperatures are expected to return to much more seasonable levels later in the week, with some snow showers possible by the weekend.Like usual, we are at the mercy of upstate New York weather, said Erin Hamlin, the 2014 Olympic womens luge bronze medalist and 2009 world champion. Its always nice to be in familiar territory for a bit.The World Cup sliding seasons are still more than a month away, but its a critical time for all three of the U.S. teams. Bobsled and skeleton national team trials are scheduled to start Saturday, and luges national championships are set to begin Oct. 28.The track is refrigerated, meaning ice can be maintained when air temperatures are well over freezing.Everyone is really excited like the first day of every season, said U.S. womens skeleton racer Annie OShea, who was fourth in the World Cup standings last season. The track is in really great condition. We really werent sure we would be able to slide today because its so warm, but of course (track manager) Tony Carlino and his crew got everything ready. We couldnt be happier to be out here again for the start of a new year.Warmer air means softer ice, and softer ice means slower times. But for sliders, it was just good to be back at work.We had some pretty decent times, U.S. bobsled veteran Steven Holcomb said. It feels good to be back on ice. Summer is tough because you cant do any bobsledding -- its just weightlifting and sprinting and training and getting ready for bobsled season.

MEDELLIN, Colombia -- Authorities prepared Thursday to transport home the bodies of dozens of victims of this weeks air tragedy in Colombia as grief turned to anger amid indications the airliner ran out of fuel before slamming into the Andes. Bolivian aviation officials announced they were indefinitely suspending the charter company that operated the flight.Many of the victims were players and coaches from a small-town Brazilian soccer team that was headed to the finals of one of South Americas most prestigious tournaments after a fairy-tale season that had captivated their soccer-crazed nation.On Thursday, row upon row of caskets, many covered with white sheets printed with the logo of the Chapocoense soccer team, filled a Medellin funeral home in preparation for being flown home, as family members of some victims gathered there to say their final goodbyes.Grieving relatives of the dead spoke out in disbelief after a recording of conversations between a pilot of the doomed flight and air traffic controllers, as well as the account of a surviving flight attendant, indicated the plane ran out of fuel before crashing late Monday, killing all but six of the 77 people on board.Osmar Machado, whose son, Filipe, a defender on the Chapecoense team, died on his fathers 66th birthday, questioned why the plane, which was flying at its maximum range on the flight from Santa Cruz, Bolivia, was transporting the team.Profit brings greed, Machado said, speaking in the Brazilian teams hometown of Chapeco. This plane ended (the lives of) 71 people.Williams Brasiliano, uncle of midfielder Arthur Maia, said the crash was avoidable if the team had chosen a commercial airline to travel to Colombia -- not a charter.Look how complicated that flight was going to be even if it had arrived, Brasiliano said tearfully of the teams itinerary, which included a flight from Sao Paulo to Bolivia on a commercial airliner before the ill-fated flight to Medellin.Even if they had arrived, it is clear that they would be tired from the trip to play a final. This cant be right. I doubt that a bigger club would have done the same, he said.Chapecoense spokesman Andrei Copetti defended the teams decision, saying that more than 30 clubs had used the Bolivia-based company, LaMia airlines, including Argentina and Bolivia, and that the team itself had flown on its flights before.They had a good service then. Itt was the airline that got in touch with us because they have experience in doing these long flights in South America, he said.dddddddddddd.A recording of the flights final minutes showed the pilot repeatedly requested permission to land because of fuel problems, although he never made a formal distress call. He was told another plane had been diverted with mechanical problems and had priority, and was instructed to wait seven minutes.As the jetliner circled in a holding pattern, the pilot grew more desperate. Complete electrical failure, without fuel, he said before the plane set off on a four-minute death spiral.By then the controller had gauged the seriousness of the situation and told the other plane to abandon its approach to make way for the charter jet. But it was too late.The recording appeared to confirm the accounts of a surviving flight attendant and a pilot flying nearby who overheard the frantic exchange. These, along with the lack of an explosion upon impact, pointed to a rare case of fuel burnout as a cause of the crash of the British Aerospace 146 Avro RJ85, which experts said was flying at its maximum range.The air traffic controller said in an email sent to her colleagues and released to local media Thursday that she had done everything humanly and technically possible to save the lives of the planes passengers.The Bolivian Civil Aviation Authority announced Thursday it was indefinitely suspending all flights operated by LaMia, and also suspending some aviation officials for the duration of the investigation. British aviation authorities said the flight data and cockpit voice recorders recovered from the accident site were being brought to Britain for study.Meanwhile, authorities prepared to repatriate the victims remains, most of which had been identified by Thursday. Relatives of some of the victims gathered at a Medellin funeral home, and a Brazilian air force transport plane was on stand-by to take the bodies home Friday. The remains of the Bolivian crew members were also expected to be flown home Friday.---Associated Press photographer Fernando Vergara reported this story in Medellin and AP writer Hannah Dreier reported from Caracas, Venezuela.
