SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Olympic Exploratory Committee presented Governor Gary R. Herbert and Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker a 36-page report Thursday with their recommendation to pursue a bid for the 2026 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
The recommendation is based upon the decision of the US Olympic Committee to consider submitting a Winter Games bid in 2026.
The Governor and Mayor will now review the report and determine by mid-November whether the state or city should move forward in pursuing the bid.
The group considered many factors, like hospitality and venues, transportation, finances and competitive analysis.
