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.
