Utah Olympic Park
Utah Olympic Park was a competition venue for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games for Nordic jumping and the sliding sports of bobsleigh, luge and skeleton. 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. 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 and the 2002 Eccles Olympic Museum, race down the track in a bobsled, or learn how to steer your own skeleton or luge sled by taking an Intro camp. Admission to Utah Olympic Park is free.
The park is owned by a non-profit organization, the Utah Athletic Foundation, which is responsible for keeping the both the Utah Olympic Park and the Utah Olympic Oval operating for use by future athletes, world champions and the general public.
