The GoPro Mountain Games are the country's largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music. Professional and amateur athletes from around the world converge upon the mountains and rivers of Vail to compete in eight sports and 24 disciplines for more than $100,000 in prize money.

The GoPro Mountain Games are not just about watching professionals - everyone is encouraged to participate! Runners can enjoy a 10K, a Mud Run fun for all ages, and the Vail Pass Half Marathon. Add XC Mountain Bike races for both kids and adults, and plenty of fun, free activities around the village like Stand Up Paddle demos, kid's climbing walls, free slacklines, and vendor tents all over! There's even an open field for Fido in the Dock Dogs competitions!

Other exciting events include steep, freestyle, sprint and full contact kayaking, rafting, mountain, road, freeride and slopestyle biking, World Cup Bouldering, amateur climbing, fly fishing, sprint and cross stand up paddling and trail, mud and long distance running, and the Gibbon Games Slackline World Championships.
Free concerts this year are by GROUPLOVE and Ballyhoo!. For a full schedule of events visit the GoPro Mountain Games Official Site.
