Just off I-80 and the Park City exit is the Utah Olympic Park. We weren't sure how interesting this would be for us since we aren't huge winter sports enthusiasts but we really enjoyed our time here.
You can actually see the ski jump, bobsled, luge, skeleton tracks and museum for free if you are willing to make a long hike up many large hills. A better option is to pay $7/pp for a guided tour on a bus that makes several stops at the major sites and lasts about an hour.
Our guide was really good and explained many details of each winter sport, so we were able to better understand what we were seeing. The highlight for me was being able to see the bottom and top of the ski jump. Our guide kept pointing out how safe ski jumping actually was but you can decide for yourself when you are at the top of the ski jump.
As an added bonus, we got to see the US freestyle ski team practice. Since it was September, they were doing their flips off a wet ramp into a pool on skis! Really interesting!
The two museums are also well done. The museum on the top floor has many nice displays about the Salt Lake Winter games including actual medals from the games. The museum on the bottom floor is a ski museum, which is an interesting look at the history of skiing and ski area development in Utah.
To see all of this, it took about 2 to 3 hours and was well worth the time.
