Divers as young as 10 can try on their flippers at Dive Utah to breathe underwater for the first time during Discover Scuba classes. Alternatively, more experienced students can hone their skills through open-water dives and more extensive training that can put them on their way to becoming instructors themselves. They can also strive to become PADI Master Scuba Divers, a certification that comes after 50 logged dives, at which point masters might feel it necessary to start wearing black belts to the pool.

In the cradle of the Wasatch Mountains, the 400 acres of Utah Olympic Park preserve the grounds where, in 2002, athletes from 77 nations competed in the XIX Olympic Winter Games and the VIII Paralympic Winter Games. A decade later, the park still retains its history through the Utah Olympic Legacy, a nonprofit organization that's maintained the sites of its six nordic ski jumps, bobsled, luge, and skeleton tracks, and skiing-terrain park. Park staffers encourage visitors of all ages and ability levels to experience these winter sports year-round.

Whether led by tour guides or coaches, park goers and athletes of all ages can navigate moguls and launch from jumps on a winter competition hill, bobsled down a 1,335-meter year-round track, or hurl down a water ramp into a summer training pool to practice their freestyle ski jumps. They can also soar through alpine terrain on ziplines that mimic nordic ski jumps or climb across the treetops on adventure ropes courses to escape a time-share salesman. After exploring the outdoors, visitors can peruse Olympic history exhibits at the Alf Engen Ski Museum and Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum.
