What’s the same, what’s different at 2021 GoPro Mountain Games?

Posted by: Tom Boyd

What’s different, and what’s the same?

The nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, which hosts the event each year, is pleased to welcome you to the 2021 GoPro Mountain Games!

What will be different?

The 2021 GoPro Mountain Games will not be exactly the same as years past. Differences include:

    • L.L.Bean Gear Town will feature fewer tents and sponsor activations than years past.
      • Expect certain areas of Vail Village to be without sponsor tents or activations.
    • No climbing events will take place this year.
    • No Steep Creek Championship event will take place this year – instead, the Pacifico Gore IV Kayak Challenge will send racers down a lively stretch of Gore Creek in Vail.
    • No slackline competitions will take place this year.
    • No Outdoor Reels film series.
    • No in-person photo contest.
    • Kids events and demos will be limited this year until the companies who provide such services are back in business.

What will be the same? 

Athletes, art, music and mountains. That’s the mantra of the GoPro Mountain Games, and it’s true again in 2021.

In the daytime, expect live music and art in the streets, a celebratory atmosphere, thousands of mountain athletes competing for glory, a whole lot of happy diving dogs, and more during the day.

In the evening, three nights of live concerts will illuminate the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater.

No matter what your plans, be sure to come ready to celebrate mountain sports, music, and lifestyle with everyone at the 2021 GoPro Mountain Games.
