On December 7, 2011, the IOC selected Lillehammer as the host city of the second edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games. The vision and slogan for Lillehammer 2016 is ‘Go beyond. Create tomorrow.’ It emphasizes that the event is designed with, by, and for the youth. Learning, combined with innovative new sporting events, will go beyond, and create the sport and leaders of tomorrow.

Lillehammer is renowned for its long winters and excellent snow conditions. With the exception of new venues for ice hockey and curling, and use of the Superpipe in Oslo, Lillehammer 2016 competitions will take place at refurbished Olympic venues from the 1994 Winter Olympic Games. In fact, most of the venues are older than the participating athletes!

List of Venues

The Youth Olympic Games isn’t just a sports event, but an opportunity for youth from all over the world to gather together and participate in ‘Learn and Share’ – an IOC initiative unique to the YOG. Learn more about the cool activities that the Lillehammer 2016 Organizing Committee has planned for these Games.
