You don’t have to be a professional athlete to experience Olympic thrills in Park City. In Utah Olympic Park you can observe the pros while they train on slopes, ski jumps, and skeleton tracks. But they also let you have your own personal run at the excitement. Park City is one of the few places where you can spend a day taking luge lessons while you rest from the slopes. So why not? At the least you can brag to your friends about how you spent a day training for the Olympics. Be sure to take the kids along and who knows what kind of spark it will ignite. And if your child is eager to pursue training, there are programs like FLY Freestyle—aerial gymnastics designed with skis in mind. You will of course need to take up residence a few months to complete the course (but really, can you complain about having to live in a premier ski resort town?). If this isn’t an option, settle for a brief introductory skeleton or bobsled clinic. If you prove to have the proper skills and ability, you can move on to the Advanced Bobsled and Skeleton Driving School. And you never know, this could put you on the path to the National Development program. Or maybe the thought of shooting down a track at a potential speed of 90 miles per hour leaves you trembling in your pants. Want to leave it to the professionals and remain a cheerleader on the sidelines? The Utah Olympic Park schedule details training, activities, and competitions that take place over the course of a season. Your trip to Park City should include this amazing opportunity to be inspired by Olympic level athletes, and to get a first hand taste yourself for a Olympic sized excitement.
