Denver proposes ‘venue-sharing’ for possible 2030 Winter Olympic Games bid
SALT LAKE CITY — The United States Olympic Committee will decide whether to go with Salt Lake City or Denver for a future Winter Games bid city in just a week.

Utah and Salt Lake City have all 16 necessary venues for all sports and disciplines. Denver and Colorado fall short at just 13. But a partnership would take the burden off Denver to build the facilities it currently doesn’t have, such as a sliding track.
Denver published a 231-page report from their Olympic and Paralympic Exploratory Committee that explains how it would work.
