LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The IOC is in talks with three possible bidders to host the Winter Olympics in the future.

Former Winter Games hosts Salt Lake City and Sapporo were confirmed, along with 1992 Summer Games host Barcelona.

The Catalonian city would spread events across the Pyrenees region and look for venues outside Spain for sliding and ski jumping.

A new Olympic selection process keeps up a rolling dialogue with possible candidates who can now be selected many years in advance.

Previous hosting elections had to be seven years before the games.

The 2024 Winter Youth Olympics were awarded to the Gangwon region of South Korea.
