Epic Activities Beyond Colorado

With so many activities to enjoy in Colorado, it would be difficult to try every one, even with an extended vacation. If your home base is closer to Canada, California, or Utah, there's equal fun to be had at our neighboring resorts.
Park City, Utah

6. OLYMPIC BOBSLED RACING

Bobsledding is a particularly popular Olympic event, watched by many yet experienced by few. But thanks to Park City’s Olympic heritage, now everybody has the opportunity to ride down an Olympic bobsled track.
 
The Utah Olympic Park was home to several events in 2002 and still operates the Winter Comet Bobsled. Experience the 6-g turns while you hurtle down the track. (Don't worry; there are professional pilots who drive and provide training prior to your run.)
