SPENCE ECCLES OLYMPIC FREESTYLE POOL AT UTAH OLYMPIC PARK

After more than two decades of use and the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation (UOLF) decided to replace existing warped wood aerial ski ramps and staircases. Jacobsen partnered with ULOF to remove all four existing wood aerial jumps, replacing them with seven steel ski jumps. Crews also replaced the existing wood stairs with a safer concrete staircase, expanded the existing pool and retreaded the hillside to allow for training in new events. The result: increased capacity and safety for athletes who flock to Utah Olympic Park for a one-of-a-kind training experience. Coaches and athletes say mogul ramps now resemble real snow-on-snow ski jumps and Utah Olympic Park says more athletes can now train simultaneously. The facility now features first-of-its-kind steel jumps and large sparge system at the base of the pool, offering additional safety measures to athletes when they hit the water.
