Winter triathlon and bandy. And maybe red bull crashed ice.

Not enough countries play Bandy I think. Oh and yea the crashed ice! I saw that over a year ago and I thought that would be cool to have in the Olympics. I think the biggest issues with holding these events is that they are so area specific that not every city is capable of holding such events due to the extreme cold weather it demands. Also the last few winter Olympics have proven to have weather issues, so if they want these games they have to consider Olympic bids from places like Harbin and Quebec City. They're gonna have to work with the extreme cold weather.

Bandy is still in development. Dominated by a few countries. But we did have four continents represented at the last world championships (Africa, North America, Europe and Asia).

ISU does not control Skatecross. Until it does Skatecross has absolutely no chance of Olympic inclusion.

The Winter Olympics has only 2 more spots left open. You have to imagine that making Nordic Combined gender neutral and adding a women's team event in ski jumping is the priority.
