Poland is considering a joint bid with Slovakia to co-host the 2022 Winter Olympics, reports the Associated Press.

Based on the current proposal, the city of Krakow, Poland would serve as the hub and snow events would take place in Zakopane, Poland and Mount Chopok, Slovakia, two resorts in the Tatra mountains.

Zakopane put in a bid for the 2006 Games and Poprad-Tatry, a Slovak resort, did so for the 2002 Games.

Donald Tusk, Poland's prime minister, was excited about the prospect, but said that cost estimates would have to be strongly considered. The country co-hosted the European soccer championship with Ukraine and has some infrastructure already built up in the country.

Other countries considering bids are Switzerland, Ukraine, Spain and Norway. The decision will be made in 2015.
