You probably saw this $100 million, world-class sports facility on TV during the 2002 Winter Olympics, as it played host to 14 events during the Games. Today, the year-round facility is an athletic training ground, open free to visitors who want to watch tomorrow’s Olympians get prepared to go for the gold—or try a little sporting of their own. Aspiring bobsledders can take a spin on the 70 mph track with a trained driver, or in the summer months, you can whiz down the ski jump via a pair of ziplines or zoom around a stainless steel Alpine slide. However, if you just want to be a spectator, it’s fun to watch the freestyle aerial training practice, landing their stunts in the park’s splash pool. The center also houses the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, which provides an interactive journey that chronicles Utah’s ski history, as well as the 2002 Eccles Winter Olympic Museum, chronicling Park City’s Olympic experience.
