Park City's Alpine Rides
The Alpine Slide at Park City Mountain Resort has become quite famous. It allows normal people to experience a little of the spirit of the Olympic luge and bobsled, rocketing you down a fixed track of banked turns and exciting straight-aways.
The Alpine Slide is one of the longest slides in the world, with over 3,000 feet of track. You can choose from one of four lanes offering varying numbers of curls, swirls, dips and turns.
And the resort offers two other unique rides. One, called the Alpine Coaster, takes you down a mountain track with over a mile of curves and bends and hills. The other, called ZipRider, is a zip line that lets you soar 100 feet in the air over the tops of trees at speeds up to 45 miles per hour.
"The Quicksilver" Alpine Slide at Utah Olympic Park is a European-style alpine slide and is the first of its kind in North America. It is a state-of-the-art steel track and will allow riders to weave down a narrow course that concludes at the base of the K-64 ski jump.
Xtreme and Ultra Ziplines. If you are looking for the World's Steepest Zipline, you can only find it at the Utah Olympic Park. Go down the Xtreme Zip at 50 miles per hour along the K 120 ski jump hill. Or the Ultra Zip along the winter freestyle hill. Experience the sensation of ski jumping as you slide down a cable in a harness to the base of the ski jumps.
