The Park City Chamber/Bureau on Tuesday ended the city's bid for the Winter X Games, determining that the action-sports event could be costly and have impacts on an important part of the ski season.
The Chamber/Bureau said it informed ESPN via e-mail on Tuesday afternoon. Park City in mid-January had qualified to advance in the bidding process for the event. It was one of at least four places that advanced.
The Chamber/Bureau had been considering a bid that involved each of the three local mountain resorts. The bid contemplated holding the Winter X Games in April instead of January, when they are now staged.
