You are probably familiar with the Utah Olympic Park as the site of many events of the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. In fact, this venue hosted six Nordic ski jumping events: the K10, K20, K40, K64, K 90, and K120 meters. The Park also features a 1,335-meter sliding track for events such as bobsled, luge, and skeleton, a freestyle aerials training and competition hill, along with a 750,000-gallon training pool.
In addition to these competition sites, you’ll find many family-friendly activities that will let you experience the exhilaration and thrills of this exciting park.

In fact, this zipline is one of the steepest in the entire world. You will begin at the end of the 120K jump and then gravity takes over, taking you to speeds up to 50 miles per hour. This zipline features side-by-side lines, so you can enjoy the experience alongside a family member or friend.
