Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper & Denver Mayor Michael Hancock have formed an exploratory committee of business and civic leaders to consider the potential benefits, ramifications and costs involved in bidding for the 2022 Winter Olympics.
The 22-member committee will be headed by Don Elliman, from the University of Colorado Medical School, and Anne Warhover, chief executive of the Colorado Health Foundation.
Among its tasks will be to determine not only the costs to bid for the Games but to assess potential venues for the various competitions, including those which would have to be built.
Among those who will be named to the committee are Olympic skier Jeremy Bloom, attorneys Steve Farber & Cole Finegan, Paralympian Sara Will, former Breckenridge Mayor Ernie Blake, Vail Valley Foundation chairman Harry Frampton, and Christine Riordan, dean of the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver.
