No, please.

A 2-year gap is too short. Utah's ONLY chance is to be ready in case another US venue is chosen and drops out (like 1976 Colorado).

go for it
(Salt Lake was delayed by Atlanta last time - but it eventually worked out and it is important to be in line)

St. Moritz: twice in 20 years. Austria: twice in 12 years. France: twice in 24 years. Japan: twice in 26 years. SLC getting it a second time is not an impossibility, nor would it even be that groundbreaking. You have to remember, the winter olympics are always going to be northern hemisphere, and have many fewer options than summer olympics.
