RENO, Nev. (AP) ' Two top ski resort executives have joined the board trying to lure the 2022 Winter Olympics to the Reno-Lake Tahoe area.

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows CEO Andy Wirth and Vail Resorts co-president Blaise T. Carrig have been elected to the Reno Tahoe Winter Games Coalition board.

Coalition Chairman and Nevada Lt. Gov. Brian Krolicki hailed their selection, saying Wirth and Carrig share the board's vision of bringing the Winter Games back to the region.

Squaw Valley, a California resort near Alpine Meadows north of Lake Tahoe, hosted the Winter Games in 1960.

Vail Resorts owns the Heavenly and Northstar resorts at Lake Tahoe.

The 32-member coalition board includes former Olympians Daron Rahlves and Tamara McKinney.
