On top of access to world-class skiing and snowboarding slopes, Salt Lake City has unique winter amenities, since it hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. The Olympic Oval is open to everyone during public skating hours. Or try your hand at speed skating or curling in a class. Head to the 400-acre Utah Olympic Park in nearby Park City to fly down the sliding track during the Winter Bobsled Experience or soar 161 feet over the park on a seven-part zip line.
