The Legacy and Future of Skiing and the Salt Lake City Olympics
On the 20th anniversary of 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, Nicole and Sarah visit the Salt Lake City area -  including the Utah Olympic Park and Woodward Park City. It’s clear that the 2002 Olympics have left a lasting legacy throughout the area. We visited is the Utah Olympic Park (called the “UOP” by the locals).  The UOP  was built for the 2002 Winter Olympics and is just 25 miles east of Salt Lake City.  The 400 acre venue houses one of only four sliding tracks (bobsleigh, luge, skeleton) luge, skeleton) in North America, six Nordic ski jumps, a 2002 Winter Games museum, and a multitude of adventure activities.  At the UOP we saw kids training slalom and moguls. We met a fellow ski mom, Barbara Wirostko Morelli and watched her daughter Cristina train freestyle moguls. We learned about how mogul competitions are scored and got some great advice for moms and kids interested in mogul competition. Cristina attends The Winter Sports School - a school for dedicated winter athletes that out of session during the winter months so she can train full time. We explored Woodward Park City, an indoor/outdoor sports facility and talked with Phoebe Mills, the General Manager of Woodward Park City (and an Olympic medalist). Inside Woodward Park City is a 66,000 square foot Action Sports Hub featuring an action sports concrete park, pump track, mini ramps, parkour zone, spring floor, Olympic grade trampolines, foam pits, and a digital media lab. Outside the Action Sports facility has skateparks, mountain biking and bmx terrain. Woodward offers a huge variety of indoor and outdoor sports options.Woodward’s progression-based facilities help kids learn new skills and achieve their goals in a positive and safe environment. Kids advance through progression and air awareness, starting indoors on the spring floor, tramps, and foam pits, and then taking those skills and techniques outdoors, to the parks.  Woodward has a variety of winter and summer camps for kids from age 7-17.Just recently, Woodward Park City was named an official U.S. Ski & Snowboard Training Center through Jan. 2025. The partnership allows athletes to utilize Woodward’s indoor and outdoor venues. Athletes will be training year-round in preparation for the 2026 Olympic Winter Games in Italy. Please support our sponsor!Mabels Labels at www.mabelslabels.com and use code SKIMOMS for 15% off your first orderJoin the Ski Moms Fun Community!Follow us on Instagram @skimomsfunCheck out the Ski Moms Fun Store Email us at sarah@skimomsfun.com
