 2002 Winter Olympic Games

Question: We will be coming to Park City next week. I know that at 2002 Winter Olympics the Giant Slalom was at Park City. We would like to ski the same course as the Super G at the Olympics. Can you please let us know which runs we need to take? - submitted by Adrian, February 13, 2014 

 

Dear Adrian, 

Thanks so much for submitting your question to the Snowmamas! We are looking forward to your visit. 

The 2002 Olympic Winter Games had various locations throughout Park City and the greater Salt Lake City area.The Super G course, as well as the downhill, were actually held at Snowbasin Resort outside Ogden, on the Wildflower Trail. Snowbasin is just over an hour from Park City.

Park City Mountain Resort was host to Giant Slalom, on CB's run, as well as snowboarding halfpipe and parallel giant slalom for snowboarding. In fact, female snowboarder Kelly Clark (who recently took bronze in the Sochi Games), won USA's first gold medal of the 2002 Olympics in Park City Mountain Resort's halfpipe.  Check out all the venues at Park City Mountain Resort here
