They way they get run NOBODY wants them anymore.  I’m beginning to think that every G20 nation who sends a decent sized team to compete should be REQUIRED to maintain suitible facilities and be in a lottery to decide who HAS to host each round.  Hosting the Olympics should be decided like Jury Duty hahahaha.  It’s your sporting duty to be available to do it when called upon to do so short of extremely extenuating circumstances like a full scale civil war..

“The report estimated the cost for the (3 week) games to hit $1.86 billion”

Help me with the math. How many skier visits are there annually?  Divided in to $1.86 Billion = what’s the price of a lift ticket now? LOL
