Venue History

Located within the 389-acre Utah Olympic Park, the 1335-m track features five start areas and is one of only a dozen refrigerated, certified tracks in the world. Construction of the Utah Olympic Park began in 1991 with the park and ski jump facilities opening in 1993. The bobsleigh, skeleton and luge track became operational in 1997. In July 1999, ownership of the Utah Olympic Park was transferred from the Utah Sports Authority to SLOC.
