SALT LAKE CITY — Thirteen Utah venues have been identified as proposed Olympic venues by the Salt Lake City-Utah Committee for the Games as part of its preferred host bid file for the 2034 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, the committee announced Wednesday.

The plan includes a core of existing venues along with bringing the new events of ski and snowboard big air into the heart of downtown Salt Lake City at Block 85, just northeast of the Delta Center.

“Our venue partners represent a modern, sustainable approach to sport,” Fraser Bullock, president and CEO of Salt Lake City-Utah Committee for the Games, said in a statement. “They have continued contributing to Utah’s sports legacy with ongoing programs and regular updates. And the ability to bring big air into downtown Salt Lake City will create great memories for athletes and spectators.”

The plan includes all three Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation venues. It also features resorts, including Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort in Park City, along with Snowbasin near Ogden. Indoor arena facilities include the Delta Center in Salt Lake City, Maverik Center in West Valley City and Peaks Ice Arena in Provo. A single centralized athlete village will be located at the University of Utah, with a new athlete family village nearby. Opening and closing ceremonies are proposed to take place at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
