    I think so why not in Fairbanks Alaska? They could put lights on Ski areas, Luge, Bobsledding And Build and Multi purpose Arena like 3 Arenas in one. You could watch Figure Skiting and Hockey And a 50,000 seat dome stadium for opening and closing ceremonies like this

    LOL -- having been to Fairbanks .... that ain't a place you want to be in the winter ... it's gets serious COLD there ... besides, what would a city of 95,000 do with a stadium that seats 50,000 ?

    Remember youre inviting the world. Theyre are other fans from all over the world coming to Fairbanks. It could boost tourism revenue. Just like what the Superbowl does for your city. Its Supposed to be cold they wouldnt call it winter for nothing

    That's winter! Its supposed to be cold. And Alaska would be great for the games. The Venues can be used for other things. Why not move the U.S Winter Olympic training center to Fairbanks. They can train most of the year prepare the next games.
