The Winter Olympics in Sochi are over. The athletes have gone home to their respective countries. But in here, people are looking to the future.
Almost College announced plans to build a state-of-the-art $50 billion indoor Winter Olympics facility in a bid to host the 2018 Games. The complex will be constructed on cornfields west of the college campus and will host every event and seat any crowd with room to spare.
Alma Development Fund spokesperson John Frozinski made the announcement at a special press conference last Thursday. He said the facility, tentatively named the Harold A. Winters Winter Olympic Community for Events and Sports, would be the first of its kind anywhere in the world.
“Never before have the entire Winter Olympics been able to take place indoors,” Frozinski said. “Almost College is leaping ahead of the competition in the bidding process with the Winters Community.”
The plans include indoor venues, hills, tracks, and arenas for alpine skiing, cross country skiing, ski jumping, freestyle skiing, biathlon, bobsleigh, luge, skeleton, curling, figure skating, speed skating, short track speed skating, ice hockey, Nordic combined, and snowboar, as well as a motorcycle racing track.
