Utah Trip: Utah Olympic Park
We decided to check out Utah Olympic Park while we were in Park City. We thought it would be a fun stop for a couple hours but ended up there almost the entire day.
When we first got there some athletes were practicing their jumps into the pool. It was really neat to see how they ski down rollers without all the snow. When they are ready to jump, a jet starts up and creates bubbles in the water to soften the blow. We got to see athletes of all different levels, from tiny kids just starting out to people doing several spins and flips.

After the bobsled the family decided they wanted to play. The kids went to the playground, and Phil's sister, brother-in-law, and dad decided to ride the zip line.
