Utah Olympic Park
The Utah Olympic Park was a competition venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games for Nordic jumping and the sliding sports of bobsled, luge and skeleton. But it's open year-round. The nearly 400-acre Park features a mixture of sporting facilities and visitor areas for an incredible Olympic experience. The state-of-the-art Park hosted more than 300,000 visitors and 14 Olympic medal events in February 2002. Best of all, admission to Utah Olympic Park is free.
The Utah Olympic Park, a U.S. Olympic Training site, now serves as a year-round competition and training ground for recreational and high-performance athletes. Visitors can watch athletes in training, visit the Alf Engen Ski History Museum (free admission) and the 2002 Eccles Winter Olympic Museum, race down the track in a bobsled, or learn how to steer your own skeleton or luge by taking an "Intro Camp." The Park is owned by a non-profit organization, the Utah Athletic Foundation, which is responsible for keeping the Park and the Utah Olympic Oval operating for use by future athletes, world champions and the general public. Daily guided tours during the summer are available.
Daily Guided Tours of Olympic Competition Sites
Travel to the top of the world's highest altitude ski jumps and see the fastest bobsled, luge and skeleton track where Olympic history was made. Watch athletes in winter training as they ski jump off the K90 and K120 Nordic hills and launch themselves into the air off the freestyle aerial kickers. Visit the interactive Alf Engen Ski Museum which chronicles Utah's ski history and the new 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum. Free Admission
Experience A High-Speed Bobsled Ride
Go up to 80 miles per hour, experience 5 G's of force, which is the equivalent of a 40-story drop in less than a minute on a four person public passenger bobsled ride. An experienced driver takes three passengers on a thrilling ride down the entire length of the Olympic bobsled track. Participants must be 16 years of age and older.
Ride to Top of the K120 Ski Jump
Take a chair lift ride to the top of the highest altitude ski jump at 7,130 feet. Look down on the Snyderville Basin from atop the K120 start house. We'll even give you a chair lift ride back down. Visit the Utah Olympic Park's website to learn more about their events and activities or to view the the Utah Olympic Park Calendar of Events.
