Wasatch Luge Club
Men’s Training Run 1& 2
Got my first real look at the track…all I can say is WOW!!!
There are very few tracks that give me the itch to break out my sled and go for a ride….this one does…it’s a fun looking track with’s long sweeping curves and mostly forgiving transition. It’s one of those tracks that appears easy to get down…..but hard to get down fast.
There is nothing subtle about this track or it’s support buildings. Everything here seems massively overbuilt. The men’s start house looks more like a football stadium then a start house. It’s about the width of a football field and about half as long with three levels. The top level is a sprint track for the athletes to warm up on. It is all covered with this incredible roof with massive beams. The track itself runs inside what I can only describe as a wooden tunnel (it kind of looks like it was swallowed by a wooden snake) who’s purpose is to keep the sun & snow off.
