During the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, Utah Olympic Park hosted bobsled, skeleton, luge, and Nordic ski jumping events. Home to six Nordic Ski Jumps, 1,335-meter sliding track with five start areas, freestyle aerials winter training and competition hill, and newly renovated Big Air pool, the Utah Olympic Park serves as a training center for Olympic and development level athletes and is a popular destination for visitors.
The Park features the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, which houses both the Alf Engen Ski Museum and George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum. Parking and admission to the museums and venue is free.
Summer and winter, the signature Comet Bobsled ride is the Olympic Park’s defining activity. With a seasoned bobsled pilot, experience the official 2002 Olympic Sliding Track including speeds over 60 mph and notable g-forces. We challenge you to count all the curves as you take this amazing ride. The summer bobsled is a built on wheels and runs on the concrete track. In the winter, the modified bobsled slides seamlessly down the ice resulting in an unmatched ride.
Adventure activities operate all summer long including two ziplines, featuring the Extreme Zip (one of the steepest ziplines in the world), the uniquely designed Alpine Slide, three adventure ropes courses and a special challenge called the Drop Tower. There are also nature trails throughout the venue, so feel free to wander and explore.
