Not really. It depends a bit on which sport it is, as different countries have different traditions. Norway, Sweden and Finland for example, in cross country. Countries like Austria and Switzerland for alpine events, most of central Europe for ski jump, and so on.

And both for the exact same reason. We have what, just over 20 indoor ice rinks in the entire country ?

Ice skating (be it figure skating, hockey or what have you) has really never been a priority here, which is a shame (exception being speed skating).
