Enter Project Big Air
The Utah Olympic Legacy, in partner ship with the USSA and a $1,000,000 Challenge Grant from Spencer F. Eccles, has initiated a crowd-funding campaign to to fund a sorely needed $3 million upgrade to the splash pool. The existing design primarily servers freestyle aerialists. The new design will include sport-specific ramps for freeskiing, freestyle skiers and snowboarders.
