There’s more to do in Park City than ski or snowboard. While in town, take a little time to visit Utah Olympic Park, which sits on the site of the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games. The destination is home to a museum for those interested in history. But, for those looking for an adrenaline rush, there’s also the winter bobsled experience. The experience allows guests to get on board and ride down an actual Olympic track. Don’t worry, a professional pilot will be there to guide you.
