We have the mountains for skiing and other downhill events. or is just too costly.
No, not even close. You don't have anything close to mountains for real competitive skiing. The standards for vert and pitch even in Sochi are longer and steeper than those used in SLC. CO, CA, WA and OR would be most likely to be on this list. Likely due to the proximity of REAL mountains to cities.
Omitting UT since it's been hosted there already. Awhile back it was rumored that CO was seeking a bid.
