Salt Lake City Considering Hosting Another Winter Olympics

An exploratory committee studying a potential Salt Lake City bid to host the 2030 Winter Olympics estimates the city could pull it off without losing money.

A co-chair of the committee says the budget estimate presented at a meeting Monday is another indication that Salt Lake City is set up nicely to host another Olympics.

The committee votes next month on whether to move forward with the bid.

Estimates say the event would cost $1.29 billion to host, with about $1.35 billion in revenues.

The committee says those figures are current dollars and would go up with inflation, but the revenue surplus would hold.
