The Reno-Tahoe region has been involved in a number of Olympic bids since 1955. At that time Alex Cushing of Squaw Valley developed a successful bid which brought the 1960 Winter Olympics to Squaw Valley. In the 1980s and 90s bids were developed by a Nevada State Commission. In 2003, the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition was formed to bring the games back to the region. Their mission is to promote the Olympic movement throughout Reno-Tahoe by hosting, facilitating and embracing competitions and events showcasing the region’s ability to be a premier sports destination.
2012 is the year the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) asks for interested cities to submit a bid. In 2013 USOC submits one city for the international bid process. Currently, the cities have been selected through 2018. The 2018 winter games will be in Korea.
In 2015 the international committee will select the host city for 2022
