RENO, Nev. (AP) - Organizers of the Reno-Tahoe Winter Games
Coalition say a new revenue-sharing agreement between the
International and U.S. Olympic committees was critical to keeping
alive their dream of hosting the Winter Games in 2022.

U.S. officials said they wouldn't consider making a bid for the
2022 Games without they deal formalized Thursday.

Andy Chapman of the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association says
it's one of the most important hurdles to clear in the bid to bring
the Olympics back to Tahoe, where they were held at Squaw Valley in
1960.

Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, told the
Reno Gazette-Journal there are still other variables in the mix but
it's "nothing but positive news" and he's "thrilled."

Others exploring bids include Denver, Salt Lake City and
Bozeman, Mont.
