baron-pierreIV Posted March 20, 2010 Report Share Posted March 20, 2010 So, I'm going to be a bad poster and not read the preceding 15 pages, but are there actual plans on paper for this bid? I'm asking because I spent a week last Christmas in Tahoe and I just can't see this thing happening. The drive from Reno is about the same as from Vancouver to Whistler, so this distance is overcomable, but I just don't see how Tahoe could pull off its end of the bid. What mountains are being considered? I'm guessing they're wanting to use the same venues at the Squaw Valley games? If so, that would make make the drive like 3.5 - 4 hours from Reno, not to mention the conditions of the ring-lake road. Maybe they're suggesting using Heavenly or one of the closer resorts? I don't know, but I'm very sceptical about the whole project. Too bad Anchorage doesn't seem interested. I was reading their bid book the other day, and they had a really cool bid. They'd get my vote any day of the week. Seth, look at: http://renotahoewintergames.org/venues.php I don't believe they will be using much of Squaw Valley; that is too far SW. They will be using the slopes (yes, like Heavenly) that are closer to Reno and the interstate.. and of course the MOST PHOTOGENIC backdrops. For the X-country and flatter terrain events, they are, I hope, considering sites closer to the CA-Nev border than Squaw Valley. That's why it's being called a Reno-Tahoe bid rather than a Reno-Squaw Valley bid. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
