BEIJING (AP) — Several skiers have expressed reservations about how the next Winter Olympics are being organized. The men will be competing in Bormio and the women in Cortina d’Ampezzo for the Milan-Cortina Games. The 2026 Games mark a return to the Alps after three straight Winter Games on new slopes in Sochi and in Asia.

Construction delays are also a major issue with a century-old sliding track that needs to be completely rebuilt and an outdoor speedskating oval that requires refurbishment.
