Holiday Festival, Skating & Tubing

Olympic Parks of Utah provided the following info about public events:


The Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns is hosting its fourth annual Holiday Festival on Friday, December 2 from 6-10 p.m. this year. Public skating will be available beginning at 7 p.m.

The public is encouraged to bring gifts as donations to the Toys for Tots program.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for youths ages 3-12. Enjoy craft making, photos with Santa Claus, aerial bungee rides and inflatables.

“Our fourth annual Holiday Festival is sure to be fun for the entire family,” said Scott Bradford, Guest Services Lead for the Oval. “Bring the kids for crafts and photos with Santa Claus and spend time together and skate on the same ice that Olympians set world records on in 2002.”

The Utah Olympic Oval is located at 5662 South Cougar Lane (4800 West), Kearns, Utah 84118. Please call (801)968-OVAL or visit our website at for more skating information.


The Olympic legacy facility at Soldier Hollow will open its tubing hill on Dec. 10. Soldier Hollow is geared up for even more winter sport enthusiasts with a second lift in operation for tubing and the early snowfall in Wasatch Mountain State Park.

New this winter season Soldier Hollow will open at noon during the week instead of 4 p.m.

“Opening earlier will allow families with young children to tube during the warm part of the day,” said Howard Peterson, Soldier Hollow general manager.

Soldier Hollow offers the longest tubing lanes in Utah at 1,000 feet. Lift service tows people up the hill for tubing day or night under the lights. To assure a quality experience, Soldier Hollow limits the sale of tubing tickets. On Saturdays and busy holidays, in particular, we encourage pre-purchase of tubing hill tickets.

For more information, call Soldier Hollow at (435) 654-2002 or visit our website at
