Just outside of downtown Park City, at 7,300 ft. elevation, the Utah Olympic Park still buzzes with excitement and enthusiasm that one might have expected 20-years ago when the Park hosted five events during the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games: bobsled, skeleton, luge, and the Nordic combined events. During that time though, the Park looked much different than it does today. Hundreds of media vans, buses, and semi-trailers filled the parking lots where dozens of nations broadcast race results across the globe of their athlete's success’ and frustrations. Fans from around the world crowded the mountainside to cheer and support their nations and compatriots. And although the two weeks of those games have long passed, the exhilaration of those sports is still electric in the brisk mountain air.
Built for the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games, Utah Olympic Park is located in Park City, just 25 miles east of Salt Lake City, Utah. The nearly 400-acre venue houses one of only four sliding tracks in North America, six Nordic ski jumps, a 2002 Winter Games museum, and a multitude of adventure activities. Utah Olympic Park is a dynamic multi-use facility focused on developing and growing participation in winter sports in the state of Utah and is an official USOC Training Site.
