Utah is one step closer to hosting the 2034 Winter Olympics

Salt Lake City, Utah – Utah is one step closer to hosting the 2034 Winter Olympics after the Utah Committee for Games submitted plans for the venue to several Winter Olympic associations on Tuesday, May 28.

According to KSL TV, the winter sports events will take place at eleven venues within an hour's radius of the planned athletes' village.

Although the meeting was not public, it is known that the Utah Committee for Games presented its proposals to the associations for biathlon, bobsleigh and skeleton, ice hockey, luge, figure skating, skiing and snowboarding, and curling.

The plan calls for hosting approximately 40% more events than the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, in nearly the same number of venues, ideally using existing venues.

The Future Host Site Commission will submit a final bid to the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) between June 12 and 14. If the Executive Board decides to submit a positive recommendation to the rest of the IOC, Utah could officially host the 2034 Winter Olympics. The host sites for 2030 and 2034 are expected to be decided at a meeting in Paris on July 24.
