Utah Olympic Park

 

The Utah Olympic Park was originally built for the 2002 Olympics and currently houses one of only four sliding tracks in North America. It was home to ski jumping, bobsled, luge and skeleton events in 2002, and possibly in 2030! It is currently used as a USOC Training Site and has many events and activities for anyone who is interested in winter sports!

Although many of their activities are free to the public, book your visit here for bobsledding, tubing, and more!

 

 

Homestead Crater

 

The Homestead Crater is one of the most unique Utah experiences both in the summer and the winter. The Crater is a geothermal spring, inside a 55-foot tall limestone rock on the Homestead Resort property in Midway. From diving to paddleboard yoga there are myriad things to do in the 90+ degree spring.

Zion National Park

 

All we can say about Zion National Park is WOW. It is an unbelievable site and one of the most trafficked national parks in the country. However, Zion is busiest in the Spring and Fall. While the temperatures in January hover around 45 degrees and the lines are empty. If you can bare the shorter days and cooler temps. It's absolutely worth it, especially if you get lucky enough to see a blanket of snow on the red rocks.
