The Winter Olympics is a popular sporting event that happens every four years. Winter Olympics debuted in France in the year 1924. The event was originally made up of sports like Nordic combined, figure skating, cross-country skiing, speed, and ice hockey. The Winter Olympics was actually stopped during the Second World War and was resumed in 1948.

Since its inception, the Winter Olympics has significantly evolved. A lot of sports events have been added such as freestyle skiing and speed skating. The emergence of television and other media has also enhanced the profile of the Olympic Games. It has also created a regular income stream through live broadcast and advertising, which has become a lucrative business in the industry.

The Winter Olympics has been hosted on three different continents. France has hosted the event three times the United States four times, and Japan, Norway, Switzerland, Canada, Italy, and Austria have hosted the games twice. The 2014 Olympics has already been set in Sochi, Russia. The commission has already selected Pyeongchang, South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Mayor Michael Hancock has already formed an exploratory committee to work on a possible Denver Olympics for 2022. The team will work on evaluating the risk and rewards of bidding and hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics. According to the exploratory committee, hosting the Olympic Games would cost around $1.5 billion. Aside from Denver, there are other American cities that are looking to place their bids, including Reno & Lake Tahoe, Bozeman, Salt Lake City, and Sacramento.

After cities place their bids this year, the OIC is expected to vote on the 2022 Winter Olympics host city on 2015.
