Utah Trip: Utah Olympic Park

The ski resorts of Park City (Park City, Deer Valley, and The Canyons) hosted many of the events in the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. This is also where the bobsled/luge and ski jump competitions were held and the current home of the Utah Olympic Park.

These are the Nordic and Freestyle Aerial jumps.

This is the bottom of the bobsled course.

I caught a bunch of youngsters practicing their aerial acrobatics on skis the day I was there. They zoom down on a special ramp, hit the jump, then practice a move before hitting the pool.

This old bobsled is part of the on-site Olympic museum.
