The 2017 Alliance Winter Games, officially known as the I Alliance Winter Games, is a major international multi-sport event for the Alliance of Independent Nations and due to be celebrated in a reformatted way to previous Alliance Games and governed by the Carolina Olympic Committee (COS). The games are planned to be held in Innsbruck, Mikenstein. Innsbruck was announced as the host city after an early end to the bidding process. Syt, Freiga bidded after the initial selection of Innsbruck; however due to their unconventional 'dry' olympics, despite having suitable resorts in the north, was found to be not as suitable for a Winter Games as Innsbruck. After exclaiming the result was unfair Freiga threatened to boycott the games however reneged "in the interest of sport"

Venues

The popular ski resort of Hörnli, about 30 miles from Innsbruck, was chosen to host nearly all the Games' events, including new purpose built stadiums and jumps. The opening and closing ceremony was due to be held in the Wolfskreut Arena Park, but due to a terror incident, this plan was changed. The Letzigrund stadium in Zurich was chosen for the Olympic and closing ceremony due to its good transport links suitable size. It is only a 1.5 hour high-speed rail ride to Innsbruck, the main host city for the games.
