Olympics 2014 The Winter Olympics begins today in Sochi, Russia. The Tahoe area was once home to the games back in 1960 and hopes to once again bring the worldwide competition back to the region. Andy Wirth, CEO of Squaw Valley Holdings, which owns and operates Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows, was preparing for bid to bring the games to Tahoe in 2022 until the United States Olympic Committee squashed those plans in 2012. Now, Squaw Valley has its sights set on hosting the 2026 Winter Olympics. Wirth joins us to talk about the start of this year’s Olympics, and the potential of hosting the games again.
