Winter Olympics could be back in our neighborhood as Salt Lake City bid advances

Salt Lake City beat out Denver on Friday as the U.S. Olympic Committee’s choice for a future Winter Olympics bid. That is likely to focus on 2030, two years after the U.S. hosts the Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. The 2002 Winter Olympics brought athletes to Idaho to train — hockey players in Boise, Nordic skiers in Sun Valley and other competitors — as well as a U.S. women’s hockey exhibition game against China.
