Why should you get a Seasons Pass?

We think that the best way to spend summers in Park City than challenging yourself over the Adventure Courses or testing your mental strength on the Drop Tower. The only thing that can top that is unlimited access to the Park any day of the week any week of the season. 2014 Adult + Youth Seasons Passes now available.

What does a Seasons Pass get you?

  • Unlimited rides on both of the Zip Lines and the Alpine Slide
  • As many times as you can climb through our Adventure Courses
  • Chairlift rides and access to the hiking trails all season long
  • The ability to add a Summer Comet Bobsled Ride at 20% off regular rate.

It will pay for itself in just three uses! So in three visits can you:

  • Beat your record time climbing though the Canyon Ropes Course?
  • Convince yourself to give the 65 ft. Drop Tower a go?
  • Do the Extreme Zip Line without closing your eyes at the start?

UOP on a Budget

What is the least expensive way to learn the Legacy of the Utah Olympic Park? Many people are unaware of what the Park has to offer without a cost. To begin with, the parking and admission to the Park are free! Once you’re up here there are plenty of things you can do without spending a dime.

Museums
Both museums are open daily from 10am-6pm and are located in the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center. The Alf Engen Ski Museum and Eccles Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museums are fun, educational and interactive. From the beginning of Utah skiing history to the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the learning opportunities are abundant. If you want to learn about avalanches and snow conditions or the history of the ski boot, it’s all there. But don’t worry, the interactive games and activities keep the exhibitions fun and upbeat for any age group. Don’t forget to take a picture with our life-size bobsled and skiier statue on your way out!

Tour Yourself
Take yourself on a walk through the Park, see all of the training facilities, and feel the magnitude of Olympic Sport. Treat yourself to seeing the Freestyle Pool where athletes of all ages train to become the next best aerial skiier. If you’re lucky, there will be athletes practicing while you’re there! Travel down the hill to the base of the Nordic Ski Jumps where the monstrous K64, K90, and K120 meter jumps show the magnitude of what it means to be a Nordic Ski Jumper. This is also where the base of many of our summer activities such as our Zip-Lines and Alpine Slide are located. Just on the other side of the park is the site of the Luge, Bobsled and Skeleton events during the 2002 Winter Games. Head over there for the chance to watch a bobsled zoom past.

Freestyle Lift and Hiking Trail
Once you’ve gotten to the bottom of the hill where you see the Nordic jumps, grab a complementary ticket and jump on the Freestyle Ski Lift and take a scenic ride to our hiking trail. This short trail recommends close-toed shoes,  but is friendly to all ages and abilities. It winds through the beautiful Utah nature and will bring you back to the Visitors Center.

Perfect Park City Sunday

IMG_0002 copyFor those of you who aren’t from Park City, ask any local and they will tell you Sundays around town are relaxed, fun, and community oriented. One of my favorite local events is the Park Silly Sunday Market. Park Silly is a weekly “eco-friendly open air market, street festival and commUnity forum where neighbors and friends come together to celebrate our commUnity of fun and funky Park Sillians.”

We can’t think of a more perfect way to spend a sunny, summer, Sunday than starting the day with a stroll down Historic Main Street through the Market and then heading over to the Utah Olympic Park for an afternoon of adventuring and the 1pm Flying Ace Freestyle Pool Show!

The Park Silly Sunday Market is a low-key, up-beat way to get to know the community that resides here in Park City. Everything from local bands to silly street performers tie in the bright colors and love for the outdoors that Park City encompasses. The Olympic Park is a family oriented way to learn about the dedication and training of Olympic Athletes while commemorating the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Altogether they make for a very Park City sorta day!

Bring family and friends up for an afternoon of fun, purchase the unlimited Gold Pass, and see what a fun day you can have!
