Denver. I still don't like Squaw Valley and the whole California thing!
Hey, why don't you also propose that American Football become a Winter
Olympic sport! I can see the laughs right now!
Quebec, or even Ostersund, Sweden. I'd choose Ostersund for this one!
all they have to do is hand the games to their neighbor. I wonder if
there's still a tiny bit of animosity between the 2 cities because of the
1994 games. But actually, since people are in the mood for first time
countries to hold the games, I chose Christchurch, New Zealand.
city interested. If not Asia, then Sion, Switzerland.
get too pissed that Chamonix might not get this. Could be another
Atlanta edge over Athens. This time, Quebec City over Chamonix.
the USA, and they do have the capabilities to hold winter events! At
least I'm surprised you didn't say Squaw Valley!

could consider trying to bid for the games again. If not, maybe Aosta or

centimental favorite, especially after 1994, but the idea of holding the
games again depend on their success. So whenever Lillehammer gets the
games again, IOC and many views and critics would compare it to 1994 more
closely than the city that hosted them before. I'm still surprised that
you didn't say Squaw Valley on 2058!
Cities that are trying to bid or could bid for future Winter Olympics are:
Lillehammer, NOR Ostersund, SWE
Tampere, FIN Turku, FIN
Lahti, FIN Garmisch-Partenkirchen, GER
Grenoble, FRA Albertville, FRA
Jaca, ESP Cortina, ITA
Aosta, ITA Sion, SUI
St. Moritz, SUI Chamonix, FRA
Innsbruck, AUT Sarajevo
Sofia, BUL Almaty, KAZ
Sapporo, JPN Nagoya, JPN
Nagano, JPN Changchun, CHN
Wellington, NZL Christchurch, NZL
Santiago, CHL Edmonton, CAN
Calgary, CAN Anchorage, USA
Salt Lake City, USA Lake Placid, USA
Squaw Valley, USA
This is not a complete list, but what I could figure out. So there are
many more places that want to hold the games. So be patient, especially
if Squaw Valley never gets the games for till 2058 or 2062.
