Olympics in Reno-Tahoe?

Is Reno-Tahoe a good fit for a winter Olympics games?

A recent poll conducted by organizers of an effort to bring a Winter Olympics to Reno-Tahoe shows a majority of local residents supports the idea, according to a story in the Reno Gazette-Journal.

A majority of respondents (51 percent) said the “strongy support” the idea, organizers said.

The Sierra Nevada has previously played host to the Winter Olympics when the games were held at Squaw Valley in 1960. Since then, the area has seen an explosion of population, event venues, hotels and other visitor amenities. Because of consistent weather, world-class ski resorts and high-altitude training opportunities, many Olympic-caliber athletes call Reno-Tahoe home.
