Competition Schedule [pdf]
70 sports events will be hosted in Lillehammer, Hamar, Gjøvik, Øyer and Oslo. With the addition of new venues for Ice Hockey and Curling, and use of the Superpipe in Oslo Winter Park, Lillehammer 2016 will reuse the Olympic venues from the 1994 Winter Olympic Games.
All venues have had scheduled upgrades in time for Lillehammer 2016 which are designed to keep these venues in world class conditions for years to come. The fact that some venues are older than many of the participating athletes shows they are built to last.
