The discipline of skeleton saw its Olympic rebirth on the Utah Olympic Park sliding track at the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Newfound fans were bolstered by three Team USA medals, including two gold. One of those athletes who was inspired was Utah’s own Noelle-Pikus Pace, who went on to win world championship gold and an Olympic medal at Sochi in 2014. The 1.335 km Utah Olympic Park track features 15 turns with an excellent layout for spectators. It has continued to play host to IBSF World Cup skeleton events, as well as providing training and introductory programs for youth.
