Utah Olympic Park

Posted on

The Utah Olympic Park is a winter sports park which built for the 2002 Winter Olympics. The park hosts national and international competitions and training events including nordic jumping and the sliding sports of bobsled, luge and skeleton.

The Utah Olympic Park serves a training center for Olympic and development level athletes, as well as a recreational highlight in the state. In addition to the Nordic jumps and bobsled track located at the park include a 2002 Winter Olympics Museum and Ski Museum in the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, a day lodge, summer aerial training jumps and splash pool, ziplines, and a mountain coaster.

Although it was built for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, but still there is wide range of summer activities going on. During the summer, ski jumpers work on technique by landing on plastic runways in landing zones. Freestyle aerialists practice their twists and jumps and land in the park’s 750,000-gallon training pool.
