course details


The Salt Lake City area is home to more than just the "greatest snow on earth." Come see for yourself why Utah is one of the most underrated states! Students at past classes have enjoyed exploring Olympic Park, where the 2002 Olympic Games were held; stopping by East High School, the location where High School Musical was filmed; visiting the historic Temple Square, and exploring historic Main Street in Park City. Over the four-day weekend, students will spend time in Salt Lake City, Park City, Orem, and Provo.
