This year, Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation and U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association have joined forces to fundraise for the Project Big Air, the complete redesign of the UOP training pool ramps, during Live PC Give PC’s Day of Giving on November 7. Salt Lake City-based Jacobsen Construction, the general contractor of the renovation project, has generously pledged to match all donations up to $10,000!
Project Big Air includes seven brand-new sport-specific ramps for aerials, moguls, freeskiing, snowboarding and big air. There is no other facility like this in the world, placing Park City and the Utah Olympic Park at the forefront of skiing and snowboarding development. The total cost of the project is $3 million and will re-open in June 2015.
The training pool has supported over a dozen Olympic and World Championship medals as well as a development base for thousands of young athletes. The unique bubble system in the pool allows athletes and local youth to test new tricks in a safe environment. To date, over 500 athletes have trained regularly at the facility in freestyle, freeskiing and snowboarding, including the U.S. Ski Team, U.S. Snowboarding, U.S. Freeskiing, FLY Freestyle, Axis Freeride, Park City Freestyle and Wasatch Freestyle as well as international teams.
Project Big Air will provide local youth with the opportunity to grow into Champions and follow in the footsteps of homegrown 2014 Olympic gold medalists Joss Christensen and Sage Kotsenberg.
This project also continues to demonstrate Utah’s deep commitment to Olympic winter sport and showcases the region’s unique ability to rally collaborative supporters in an effort to further utilize its already active Olympic venues.
UOLF and USSA have already been hard at work securing donations towards this very important project. Spencer F. Eccles has committed to a $1M challenge grant towards the project and the UOLF has contributed $1 million. With the support of local donors and businesses, UOLF and USSA are very excited to keep the fundraising momentum going through the Live PC Give PC Campaign.
Every dollar counts in this amazing effort. The renovated ramps will provide Park City kids world-class training opportunities right in their own backyard!
