Squaw Valley will never get the olympics ever again. Its as simple as
that!!

There's no room for new venues. There's no room for accomodations.
They didn't hold bobsled in 1960 because they didn't want to build a
track.

As for Squaw Valley itself, its located in a protected watershead
basin now, the greater Lake Tahoe scenic area. The major amount of
construction will never be approved. Heck, they're even debating
simple runs at Square and neighboring Alpine Meadows!!

Any Winter Olympics that ever make it to the US will most likely be in
the Rockies or New York, where their not affraid of some sort of
development.

[snipped the rest]

Just to clarify. I deleted everything that Colin wrote and forgot to
delete the above line. Everything in the previous post was my
thoughts, not his.
