Interesting that only Falun applied.

Wondering what it could be due to.

Too expensive, no interest, no skiers, no snow, ...

It will certainly be expensive, but Falun is and will remain a ski town.

We spend a lot of tax money on a lot that can be seen as unnecessary, if this is unnecessary, you can discuss.

Fun if there will be a new World Cup in Falun.

I think it is good for Falun because we are a world heritage site
