Our final posting for the visit to the Utah Olympic Park is highlighting a tour we took of the ‘sliding center’, the bobsled, skeleton, luge track and the ski jump runs.
Th bobsled track runs for about 8/10 of a mile and drops almost 350′ through 15 corners. The luge track runs down most of the same path with a slight difference at the top, resulting in 2 more corners.
The ski jumps are very impressive from the top. With some water sprayed on the run it is used year round.
At the bottom of the hill is a pool that is used for the freestyle folks to practice year round. With the museums and the tour the Utah Olympic Center is a great place to spend the afternoon. Sadly I missed by a few days of being able to take a ride in a bobsled – next time!
