Group looks into possibility of Tahoe Olympics

A group of California business and political leaders has formed
an exploratory committee to look into bringing the Winter Olympics
to the state.

The California Winter Games Committee will work to determine the
feasibility of hosting the games in the Lake Tahoe region and other
parts of the state. The group will work with Nevada’s Reno-Tahoe
Winter Games Coalition on a unified effort to bring the Olympics to
the Lake Tahoe region.

The earliest Olympics the group could bid for would be the 2022
Olympics. The Winter Olympics were last in the United States in
2002 in Salt Lake City and last in California in 1960 at Squaw
Valley.
