Utah Olympic ParkFrom First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine:

Park City, UT – The Canyons Resort has announced an exclusive summer partnership with the ski resort’s neighbor, the Utah Olympic Park. Guests at The Canyons and guests at the Utah Olympic Park will be eligible for discounts on specific activities at each respective venue.

Guests who visit the Utah Olympic Park, known affectionately around Park City as UOP, will be offered discounts on gondola rides and disc golf at The Canyons with purchase of UOP activities. Guests of The Canyons will be offered discounts on UOP activities, including: Xtreme Zipline, Ultra Zipline, Quicksilver Alpine Slide, Summer Comet Bobsled, K120 chairlift rides and Utah Olympic Park Tours with their purchase of an activity at The Canyons.

During the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, UOP welcomed more than 300,000 visitors during 16 days of competition, and was the site of 14 events – three in ski jumping, three in nordic combined, three in bobsled, three in luge and two in skeleton.

This summer, experience activities like a gondola ride to 8,000 feet at The Canyons and mountain bike on the miles of trails that connect with Park City’s massive trail network around the resort, or spend an afternoon playing disc golf on a brand new 18-hole course. Combine these activities with hitting 70 m.p.h. on the Olympic bobsled track, or the Xtreme Zipline, one of the steepest ziplines in the world which drops nearly 500 feet at 40 to 50 miles per hour, or the Quicksilver Alpine Slide, a smooth, curvy European style slide with a stainless steel track.

Every Saturday during the summer, check out the high-flying action as Olympians and national ski team athletes put on a 25-minute freestyle aerial show for spectators. Skiers and snowboarders soar up to 60 feet in the air and perform acrobatic feats before landing in a 750,000 gallon splash pool, all choreographed to music. Showtime is at 1:00 p.m.

Then, grab your picnic basket and head over to The Canyons for the free Saturday Summer Concert Series, starting on July 18th. All concerts are scheduled from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and the Cabriolet lift will run from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for guest parking.
