Located near Salt Lake City, the American capital city of Utah. Both hills stand in the Utah Olympic Park(bobsleigh tracks, among others, are also located there), formerly known as Utah Park of Winter Sports. They stand on the same hill at the height of circa 2200 meters above sea level, which makes for great snow conditions in winter. The hill is located in a depression which gives a natural protection from wind. A relatively small level of air humidity makes the local snow(7,5 meters a year) to be considered the “best on Earth”. The wind here is hardly ever too strong.
About the hill:
The state of Utah has a long ski jumping tradition. From an ordinary ski center it has evolved into a recreational industry that is worth millions of dollars. In its mining history skis were mere means of transportation. Up to the 30’s state ski jumping competitions were held on the hill of Echer, not far from Salt Lake City. Soon skiing became grand entertainment.
Opened in 1992, the world-class park, holding a whole complex of hills(construction started in 1991) received an award from MKOL for the greatest project and environmental plan(during the construction the terrain was under strict monitoring). Even now efforts are made to minimize the ground erosion and protect the area’s natural inhabitants.
The biggest event to take place on this hill were Winter Olympics of 2002 when Adam Malysz, who won a bronze medal on this object, achieved great successes. World Cup competitions are also organized here and Continental Cup competitions are held regularly.
Plastic as well as ceramic tracks enable training all year round. The Olympic hill is one of the most modern hills of that type in the world.
