Luge Team returns to Park City

The Utah Olympic Park will welcome the U.S. Luge Team as the first team on the ice on the Olympic Track, through Nov. 4. It will mark the only appearance of the luge team in Park City during the 2007-2008 season. The 14-member team began training in Lake Placid, N.Y., earlier this month. The squad hopes that the added ice time in Park City will help it get off to a fast start when the eight-race World Cup series opens Nov. 16 and 17, in Lake Placid. Known as one of the fastest tracks in the world, Utah Olympic Park’s 15 curve, 1,335 meter bobsled, skeleton and luge track requires 18 days to create ice on the track.. A crew of Utah Olympic Park employees has been working 24-hour shifts since mid-October to ice the track. The crews leap-frog each other down the track every 20 minutes, plugging into 62 hydrants and spraying the track with hundreds of layers of ice. An additional four-day period is necessary to shape and hone the ice. Utah Olympic Park has recently been designated an official U.S. Olympic Training Sites by the United States Olympic Committee (USOC). While the park has served as a training site for Olympians, the designation symbolizes an expanding partnership with the USOC.
