“The GoPro Mountain Games are such an awesome way to kick off summer in the mountains,” says Rick Loughery, GoPro’s Vice President of Global Marketing and Communications. “Whether you’re competing in the events, strolling around the lively festival village, or enjoying the evening concerts, there’s something for everyone. And of course, GoPro cameras and software are the perfect solutions to capture and share these experiences.”

Loughery highlights the contagious enthusiasm generated by the event: “The GoPro stoke from the event attendees is unmatched, and we’re excited to continue working with VVF in the years to come.” From heart-pounding kayaking descents down Gore Creek captured with head-mounted GoPros, to the hilarious chaos of the mud runs, or even a pup’s-eye view of the crowd-favorite Dock Dogs competition, the GoPro Mountain Games offer endless opportunities to immortalize awe-inspiring moments.

The partnership between GoPro and the Mountain Games has flourished over the years. GoPro first joined forces with the event in 2010, when it attracted roughly 37,000 spectators and 2,600 athletes. Taking on the title sponsorship role in 2013, GoPro has played a significant role in the event’s growth. Today, the GoPro Mountain Games boast over 90,000 spectators and more than 4,000 athletes competing across 30+ competitions in 11 different disciplines.

For those unable to attend in person, VVF media partners will broadcast event recaps, allowing viewers to experience the thrill from afar.

Dave Dressman, GoPro Mountain Games Event Director for VVF, emphasizes the importance of the partnership: “GoPro is an exceptional partner for this event and has been instrumental in the continued growth of the Mountain Games. Over the last 15+ years, GoPro has enabled us to capture and share the thrill of the Mountain Games from an entirely unique, immersive perspective. This helps us promote the event’s mission: bringing mountain action sports to the community, whether you’re a pro or not.”

The GoPro Mountain Games promise an exhilarating kick-off to summer, offering a chance to witness athletic prowess, participate in various activities, and embrace the spirit of adventure. With GoPro technology at the forefront, these incredible experiences can be captured and cherished, allowing participants to relive the excitement and inspire others to explore the wonders of the outdoors.
