Main Document

Milan-Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, will be host to the 2026 Winter Paralympic games.

The 2026 Winter Olympics will take place from 6th to 22nd February and the 2026 Winter Paralympics will be held from 6th to 15th March.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted for Italy's joint bid ahead of Stockholm, Sweden.

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.
