Twenty communities have or will have hosted the Winter Olympics. Which ones have you visited? If any?

Cities above are alphabetized and I had to break the choices up into two questions to account for those that have never visited a past winter host as the system here only allows 20 answers per question.

Visited Squaw Valley - actually, was there when the Salt Lake City Olympics were going on.

Drove thru Salt Lake City two years ago.

Been in Vancouver numerous times as I'm originally from BC.

Now live in Calgary! B)

I spent about an hour and a half at the Salt Lake City airport in 2008 en route to Phoenix before I moved here... so yeah, lovely city from the airport... but people could smoke in parts of the terminal... absolutely disgusting, have never seem smoking in a US airport before or since... I hope they have shut those smoking lounges down since then... could smell it from anywhere in the terminal in SLC... bleh

Where's RENO? I'm sure that's an Olympic city!

Also, from the other list, I forgot that I also visited Albertville but it was two summers before their Games, so even the main stadium and the Ice Skating rink weren't up yet. (So, if we count the imposter Denver, then I've visited at least 6 Winter cities.)

The question is has or will host. Not turned down or hopes to host. You don't see Ostersund and Salzburg on there, do ya?

I've stayed a few days each in Torino and Oslo, and have made day trips to Lillehammer, Nagano and Innsbruck.

Enjoyed my time in each of them .

I have been to Vancouver (also Whistler) , Calgary, Nagano (also Hakuba, Karuizawa, Nozawa Onsen), Grenoble, Lillehammer and Oslo.

I actually used to live in the 1952 Olympic Village which is now student housing in Oslo.
