Experience the legacy of the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games at Park City’s inspiring Olympic complex, minutes from Deer Valley.

One of the things we love best about our Park City, Utah location is sharing its Olympic legacy. And there’s no better place to do that than at Utah Olympic Park, situated 20 minutes from Deer Valley at Kimball Junction.
