As Hank suggested, it would be a logistical nightmare for the Olympics. Just too many variables at play. You need good snowfall, you need to create a way for spectators to watch, you would have to create a judging system. No way the IOC would go for it. Remember when the winter Olympics were in BC and it wasn't snowing? They had to bring in snow by the truckload to build parks, pipes, etc. That wouldn't be feasible for building a big mountain course. I'd love to see it, but it's not gonna happen.
