21 New York City, United States New York City, United States The City of New York, often called New York City or simply New York, is the most populous city in the United States.
22 Edina, United States

Only because the twin cities has a special place in my heart.

Decided I'd scroll down till I saw the first US city, then I saw Edina, a city in my home state. Things are so cold here up in Minnesota that we wouldn't have to worry about the halfpipe melting like it did in Sochi.

I only chose this because I am Minnesotan. There would be challenges with the alpine skiing events (i don't think Lutsen or Giants Ridge could host olympic downhill), but indoor ice events could be at the Xcel Energy Center and/or Target Center and there are a lot of cross country trails around here (including one five minutes from my home). Beside, we will likely have four million residents in the MSP area by 2026, so I think we will have enough peeps and venues for the events).

40 Portland, Oregon Portland, Oregon Portland is the largest city in the U.S. state of Oregon and the seat of Multnomah County. It is a major port in the Willamette Valley region of the Pacific Northwest, at the confluence of the Willamette and Columbia Rivers.

Skiing all year long on Mt. Hood and the slopes of Mt. Bachelor not far away! Two large ice hockey and Ice Events are side by side near downtown and on light rail lines. Only a speed skating oval would need to be built. International Airport withing a few minutes of downtown. (The airport is rated the best in the country by the way! )
