I can't imagine there's many ski resorts that don't have others nearby to host other stuff. That national scale idea is interesting but wouldn't it just make (what would be) the Olympics even more unwieldy and lead to a problem with them instead? The problem isn't the ski areas themselves, but the infrastructure needed to support the games. In example my home city of Seattle cannot host the winter games irrespective of funding and political will because the road to the potential alpine skiing resort (Crystal Mountain) is not wide enough and enlarging it would be political suicide for local politicians because it's in a protected forest. There are lots of ski areas that could manage the winter games if it were only a question of catering to the athletes. It's the huge requirements for officials, media and fans that make the modern games difficult and cuts the list of potential hosts down dramatically.
