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.
IOC has for the 2026 Winter Olympics allowed a longer distance between events, so that alpine skiing can be held in a mountain area, and e.g. ice hockey and figure skating in a large city more than 100 miles away where such arenas are already available or have greater usage after the games.
