Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

2026 Winter Olympics to be held in Italy

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
The IOC have today announced that the 2026 Winter and Winter Paralympics will be held in Milan and Cortina d'Ampezzo. Skating sports and ice hockey will be held in Milan, while most alpine skiing events will take place in the resort of Cortina. Other snow sports will be held in other venues in the Italian Alps, including Bormio and Livigno.

I expect this means that Cortina will be updating some of its lift infrastructure, which is welcome as some of the lifts are quite dated.

@Alastair Pink, Cortina will also be hosting the 2021 Alpine World Championships so some lifts may get updated sooner.

I swear I heard an, apparently confused, Sky Sports announcer call it Cortina d’Ampedalo a little earlier Laughing

Sensible??? From Milan to Cortina, that’s almost all of North-Italy!
In a nation that is virtually bankrupt, and whilst knowing that Olympics is never going to bring the promised return on investment....
Luckily in Tyrol/Innsbruck common sense prevailed. (Referendum resulted in vote against candidacy)

Italy is financially bust and the post-warming snowfall gets thinner every year.

The 2026 Olympics are gonna be skiing on boilerplate whitestrips and skiers driving themselves up the hill to the startgate Laughing

They will have got it partly because the snow there is so reliable. It’s 100% man made and they will be able to prove decades of reliably sufficient race quality snow in Cortina in early February.

No need to worry these days whether nature will deliver snowHead

@ulmerhutte, thanks to the wise Innsbrucker voting against, otherwise Alpine races would have been in Kitz and St.Anton

Provided you don’t care how much ammonium nitrate is put into the runs. Makes for green grass in the summer, though.

Well, sensible as in not the Olympics in Qatar or North Korea or Mongolia, as is the latest record for the Olympics and World Cup

"Sensible" in that it's going back to a traditional region, rather than a "non-sensible" destination such as Sweden. rolling eyes

That said, half the Swedes don't seem to want it. And that's partly the reason it didn't win.

Well clearly the event will be split between the two locations which works for me, don't need the alpine crowd mixing with the ice dance types and curling teams eh ?
