Actually, the whole Eagle Race Arena area of Park City Mountain Resort is closed to everybody but racing teams (though the Eagle lift is open to the public as an easy access point to King Con). CB's Run was used for the GS. You can ski the top flat area of the course, which is not in the closed race training area. The Olympic GS started near the top of the lift on King Con ridge (the small triple that starts near the unloading station of the Eagle lift) before hanging a right turn onto the face of CB's Run.
The Grizzly and Wildflower courses are open to the public, and have been decommissioned by the owners of Snowbasin, who do not plan on using either course again in the foreseeable future. It's a pity, because both are fun DH courses. The Grizzly Mens DH is a real hoot, and was one of the more challenging DH courses in modern times: tons of air, fall-aways, odd compressions and few gliding portions kept racers on their toes. The start face is one of the best in alpine skiing, and the view from the start shack (both out of the starting gate and looking back toward Ogden) is epic on a clear day. The finish shuss is also intense - it's right below where Bode almost chucked it into the coaches during the combined DH. The Austrian coaches grumbled quite a bit about the course, both at the warm-up World Cup in '01 and at the Games in '02.
Wildflower is a bit more mellow, but still had its share of hangtime for the women. There was a bit more gliding available, but the course still had its share of off-angle turns, compressions and jumps.
As mentioned before, the combined SL courses for men and women were on the lower quarter of the Wildflower DH course. Since the Games, Snowbasin has turned this area into a superpipe, so it's tough to reenact the finsh jump of the DH or the tight turns of the SL.
The Olympic SL run, Know You Don't, is a very steep, concave run for SL. It's a bit monotonous, but unrelenting.
I worked on the Wildflower courses during the Games, and on the Grizzly course during the 2001 World Cup race, so I'm quite familiar with the area. I've run FIS GS races on Know You Don't, and it was a good, steep run on the portion where the Olympic SL was set. And my old team trains at Park City, so I've had a chance to run full-length GS courses on CB's - it's a gas!
