Park City’s Olympic Park
Park City, Utah is home to a source of national pride: Utah Olympic Park, the impressive and dynamic venue where the 2002 Winter Olympics were held and famous Olympian athletes like Shaun White made their mark on the world. Spanning nearly four hundred acres, this locale is open to visitors all year long, and is ideal for honing your skills in not only winter sports, but summer sports as well.
Read on to learn more about the exciting activities Park City’s Olympic Park has to offer!
What to Do in This Famed Olympic Park
Beginning athletes will enjoy extreme summer tubing (in which participants traverse Nordic Ski Jumps in an inner tube) and the Discovery Adventure Course. Those with intermediate skills, experience, or both should try the Canyon Adventure Course, while advanced and expert thrill-seekers will have fun on the Summit Adventure Course, the extreme ziplining course (which is one of the steepest and longest in the world), and the drop tower, which consists of a sixty-five-foot free fall after your zipline journey.
For those who are less inclined toward thrill-seeking, there are a number of wonderful activities that allow you take in the sights and fascinating history at your leisure. Park City’s Olympic Park offers guided tours of the Olympic venue’s inner-workings by shuttle bus, as well as a trip to the top of the park’s Nordic ski humps (which are the highest in the world) and the fastest sliding tracks in the world.
Visitors can also observe the exhibits at the Eccles Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum, or take in the breathtaking sights from the two scenic chairlifts in the park. Additionally, the Alpine Slide gives you a rollercoaster experience, but puts you at the controls; riders can go as fast or as slow as they’d like, in a comfortable, reliable, and smooth-riding sled.
Finally, regardless of your skills and abilities, athletes can train year-round at none other than the Olympic Park in Park City, Utah. Whether you’re an athlete-in-training or you want to watch athletes perform stunning feats, you might just run into a professional!
