The more goes to Süd-Tirol, the better :p Although that's not the main part I believe (without taking the time to google exactly which places are or are not there :p )

 

well, technically, only Anterselva/Antholz is in South Tyrol...:evil:

 

in the picture above there's a map of Northern Italy with all the proposed venues for Milano-Cortina 2026, so to understand where they're located within the Country (just click on it to see a bigger version of the map)

 

p.s. Predazzo is not selected on the map, but basically it's the same place as Tesero, just a few minutes drive down the same road...

It’s kind of a random collection of venues, but it’s also a ton of classic venues. Bormio and Cortina for Alpine Skiing and Biathlon in Antholz would be big treats in particular.

 

the main concept is exactly that...

using the most iconic winter sports venues already existing and working in Italy, with the less new buildings as possible (the main expenses would be the re-building of the Cortina Track and the covering of the Baselga Ice Rink...the new big hockey -actually, multi-purpose, of course- arena in Milan is not counted, as it looks that it will be build in any case by private investors, even if Milan doesn't get the honor of hosting the Olympic Games...so, there's no public funding required nor actual relationship with the Games for that)...

 

p.s. Predazzo and Tesero are also "regular" hosts for the Nordic Skiing Worlds (and World Cup/Tour de Ski)...:evil:

and Livigno, even if they don't normally get involved in the world cup stuff, has one of the most beautiful Snow Park in the Alps, with permanent tracks for most "freestyle" disciplines of ski and snowboard...;)

not to mention Cortina's tradition in Bobsleigh...the new track would follow the course of the old one, just getting renovated according to the more modern security standards (and adapted to Skeleton and Luge requirements, as those 2 disciplines have never been really contested in Cortina, not internationally at least)...

 

in general, all those places are very much familiar with the winter sports world, at least in the past, when not that recently...

yeah, that's the main issue...but, as for what reports have been written, it wasn't the only false step they had to cope with...;)

Sure. But luckily they've shown plenty of times before that they're capable of hosting major events without cock-ups
