GoPro Mountain Games is four days of every man-powered sport you can imagine, all happening at one time. As a vendor, spectator, photographer, and participant, the weekend was nothing less than overwhelming. Each day is packed to the brim with mountain biking, SUP yoga, slacklining, climbing, mud running, dog jumping, and one hundred other things you could possibly think to do in Vail, Colorado. The gondola is running, and the games ready for playing. Check out some of our incredible moments from The Mountain Games.
GoPro Mountain Games was a great introduction to a plethora of sports we barely knew about. With every turn of the head, there was something new happening. One evening as we sipped margaritas next to one of the ski slopes, a man at the table next to us was dared to run up the double black slope and roll down, in exchange for drinking free for the night. Everyone on the deck cheered as the man made his way up the steep hill huffing and puffing until he was a tiny spec. There was an even bigger eruption as he laid down and log rolled down. At GoPro Mountain games, anything can become an adventure!
