As we kick off our 17th annual GoPro Mountain Games, we want to wish our athletes, partners, vendors, staff, volunteers, spectators and sponsors a safe, peaceful and enjoyable few days in beautiful Vail, Colorado.
Each year, the Vail Valley Foundation likes to tip its hat to Joel Heath. Joel, along with his small but talented team including Joe Blair, had a great vision that started 17 years ago with a small whitewater festival in Vail that evolved into Mountain Games and a celebration of athletes, art, music and mountains.
The Vail Valley Foundation acquired the Mountain Games project from Joel Heath 10 years ago and it has been an honor and our privilege to grow and expand this beloved project to what is arguably today, the largest human powered, adventure sports, mountain lifestyle and music festival in the world. We hope you all have a wonderful time at the GoPro Mountain Games.
– Mike Imhof, President, Vail Valley Foundation
