Mountain Games News Service

Our newsroom is the best place to get the pulse of the GoPro Mountain Games. Please use it as a resource. Throughout the GoPro Mountain Games, uniformed members of the Mountain Games News Service (MGNS) will be available to help you find interview subjects and understand the ins and outs of all the various events and activities. Check out our latest MGNS piece in the NEWSROOM.


The Mountain Games is a complex event with a lot of moving parts. To keep media up to speed, we utilize a text-to-mobile app to send short updates on start times and other critical media information. Accredited media will have the chance to opt in or out of this service at the start of the Mountain Games.

Proper usage

Always refer to the event as the GoPro Mountain Games in first reference and the GoPro Mountain Games or Mountain Games thereafter, never the GoPro Games.


Many of you will be gunning for the best vid or pic, but it’s not worth putting yourself or the competitors in danger to get it. We expect all of you to play it safe, and if not, we will revoke your media credential.
