About any cities in the Southern Hemisphere who wish to host a future Winter Olympics (like Santiago de Chile): I doubt any such cities would have any indoor arenas with seating capacities or playing areas large enough to hold ice hockey, figure skating short-track speed skating, or possibly curling. Any Southern Hemisphere cities will struggle to find a legacy/post-Games use for those newly-built arenas.

Thats probably why Canada is now getting more involved because they probably see it as a strong opportunity to get it if no Western Europe city steps up.
Very true, but I suspect by the time the bids start, the IOC had gotten it's act together on making the games more affordable instead of them being financial boondoggles only nations with dictators would likely bid and try to host.

Stgo or Bariloche (longshot) will be perfect, a trully new horizon, but I don't see it happening soon

Munich will be great, but I know its nearlly imposible; still Europe needs to get the games in 2026, a cozy- ski resort vibe games will be great after Beijing.

Would love to see a Chilean winter games, but could Santiago host a winter games in February? After all, that's the summer for them.
If they can't, I would hope the IOC would allow them to move their games to July or August. It would show the IOC's desire to make the Winter Games a global sport. And the IOC would be happy because (and this is more important in reality) the major networks broadcasting the games, who otherwise would have nothing to show in late northern hemisphere summer, would be ecstatic for the ratings boost of an Olympics in July/August!

Australia would have been great but we don't have big enough mountains for it

Haha fair enough to you and Hps95. In my defense I'm an american, and I really don't think about the world cup. But yeah you're right the world cup would definitely take precedence. In that case a late August Olympics would be great! As long as it doesn't interfere with the NFL/major Soccer seasons.

Santiago-Chile or Bariloche-Argentina or (being utopic) Ushuaia-Argentina, for the first winter olympics in the southern hemisphere and second olympics in South America!

One day I dream Tehran will host the winter olympics, there is great potential in the city for winter sports. Obviously this is not very likely in the foreseeable future but I hope one day in my life time I can see my city host these games.

I would love to see the Winter Olympics hosted in New Zealand and in particular in the city of Christchurch, but I don't think this city is ready to bid for 2026 because of the terrible earthquakes of the last years...one day, maybe...
