East Meadows 5th graders took the opportunity to visit Olympic Park near Park City. Olympic Park served as the 2002 Olympic venue for ski jumping, Nordic Combined, Bobsled, Skeleton and the Luge. Besides seeing how snow is great for a lot of fun winter activities, the students learned that snow is also important to Utah’s economy. In fact snow is called ‘white gold,’ and without it industries would economically suffer. Students enjoyed looking at the event rides and watching people do some practice runs. They were amazed at how fast the riders zoomed by.
