Oslo has 2 existing arenas, Spektrum Arena and Jordal Amfi Arena.

This could host Hockey II and Curling respectively.

Then you'd need to build a new major arena for Ice Hockey I and another arena for Figure Skating/Short Track. The 2nd arena could be potentially solved with the construction of a new convention center in the city. This convention center could potentially also host the Main Media Center.

Speed Skating could also be held in this venue, or by reverting Nye Bislett Stadion to host a Speed Skating Oval.

Or you could just use Telenor Arena for Curling:

Oslo Spektrum for Ice hockey II

In addition to a new ice hall at Jordal Amfi (using the existing one as a training facility) for figure-skating and short-track and a new ice hall either in Oslo or in Asker for Ice hockey I.

Is Curling that popular? Does it require a 15,000 seat arena? I'd say use Telenor Arena for Figure Skating/Short Track in an extended say 20,000 capacity (by temporarily lowering the field and adding additional seating) and build a new arena for Ice Hockey I.

Norway has one the current most successful mens team in Curling. They wear ugly trousers, but they play really good.

The King seems to like them.

Norway is one of the more successful countries in curling, with Sweden, Scotland, Switzerland and Canada.

I do suppose Telenor Arena could be used for Curling at say a 10,000 capacity, by walling off part of the arena in which the other side of 5,000 unused seats (field floor) could serve as the training curling lanes (say 2 of them).

Potential Venues?

Existing, No Works Required:

Holmenkollen National Arena: Ski Jumping: 30,000 and 16,000. (Ceremonies)
Oslo Spektrum: Ice Hockey II: 7,000.
Jordal Amfi Arena: Curling - 5,500.

Existing, Permanent Works Required:

Bislett Stadion: Speed Skating: 15,400.
Telenor Arena: Figure Skating/Short Track 15,000 OR Curling - 8,000-10,000.
Norefjell mountain range: Downhill Skiing, Snowboard, Freestyle Skiing.
Holmenkollen National Arena Biathlon Stadium: Biathlon/Cross Country Skiing.

New Venues:
New Major Arena: Ice Hockey I - 18,000.
Norges Varemesse Conference Center - New Hall: Figure Skating/Short Track Speed Skating - 15,000.
New National Stadium: Ceremonies - 40,000.

Temporary Venues:
Olympic Sliding Center: Bobsleigh, Luge, Skeleton.

Norges Varemesse Conference Center will be used as the Main Media Center in an expanded capacity.

Ideally, Curling will be held at the 1962 Arena, to permit Telenor Arena to be used for Figure Skating/Short Track and allow Norges Varemesse Conference Center's expansion to serve the MMC in the Olympics.

This is the current state of Jordal Amfi which can only be described as absolutely dreadful.

^^ What I meant by temporary sliding venue, is that you already have the one in Lillehammer. Naturally you are not going to use ANY Lillehammer venues in order to distance yourself from those games, so if there is no need for a 2nd Sliding venue in Norway, then you propose a temporary venue, which will be dismantled after the Olympics.

So propose Jordal Amfi as existing with permanent works required. The right end wall seems perfect for that Curling scoreboard and a video screen.

I see what you think ;)
Nevertheless, the Jordal site (see under) is being considered in a bid for a new Figure skating/short-track ice hall (12 000 seats during the games)
Posted Image

There is also an existing training venue (The white building), (The rings dates back to 1952)

Bonus: A few renderings from the proposed new ice hall (Nye Askerhallen) (Asker is located approximately 16-18 min away from Oslo)
