Boise/Sun Valley could function could function in principle. They could have histed 30 years ago.
The same reason why I think Reno would not work as a host city and use Tahoe for the mountains.
Also thats why Lake Placid cant work as a host now. they could still do Skiing events but the other events need to move to a larger city like New york or Buffalo.
Thgat is another idea---NY state could host where the Skiing/snow events are at Lake Placid, The hockey games, figure skating, and speed skating occur in Buffalo, rochester, and Syracuse.
I think Lake Placid is closer to Ottawa and Montreal than it is to Buffalo and Rochester (and the two Canadian cities are a lot larger than Syracuse).
