GoPro Mountain Games Return to Vail in June

94

The GoPro Mountain Games are officially a GO for June 10-13, 2021. Event Director, Dave Dressman, said, “We are back, and we could not be more excited to bring some joy, vitality and positivity into people’s lives in the fresh air and sunshine of this beautiful mountain setting. It takes months of planning and many, many key partners to make this event happen. The support we have received from our sponsors, the Town of Vail and Vail Resorts is remarkable, and it speaks to the power of the Mountain Games brand. We have looked at this from every angle and we feel confident we have a strong baseline plan to execute a safe, high-level, athlete-focused GoPro Mountain Games this June.”

The event will focus on athletes, music, and multimedia experiences in this iteration of the event. The spectator aspects are expected to be curtailed, and in some cases eliminated, due to ongoing public health restrictions.

The event will include three nights of GoPro Mountains of Music headliner concerts (in-person and livestreamed) from the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, and a daily ‘SportsCenter-style’ live broadcast produced by Outside TV, which will open the livestream concert each evening.

Athlete registration is expected to open April 9. Learn more at mountaingames.com.
