Faster Posted January 30, 2014 Report Share Posted January 30, 2014 One of the main reasons Denver '76 was canceled was because all the ski resorts suited for Olympic events were far from the city. It's too much of a hasel and with the games becoming such a large event the logistics would be a nightmare, Salt Lake City will always be America's Winter Olympic city next to maybe Lake Placid. Distance between Vancouver and Whistler is about the same as Denver to Vail or Breckenridge. Wasn't a problem for Vancouver, wouldn't be a problem for Denver. Calgary to Lake Louise is further. And the fact that Breckenridge and Vail are close together and within 100 minutes of Denver makes Denver an ideal host for the OWG now. Lake Placid is far too small now. It would be impossible for LP to host another Games. Quarker, Toronto is not going to win any Olympic bid anytime soon. Calgary is our next Olympic host. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
