Get to The GoPro Mountain Games in Vail For Trail Runs, Biking, Yoga, & More

When you think of the GoPro Mountain Games, you’re probably picturing hardcore elite athletes duking it out to conquer all that the mountains have to give (all while strapped with a GoPro, of course). But just because you spend your weekdays in a cubicle instead of a kayak doesn’t mean you can’t get in on the fun.

There are plenty of ways for us amateurs to stay active during the day before hitting up happy hour and checking out the live music at night.

  • Sweat it out

    Pack those running shoes because you’ll have tons of opportunities to take to the mountain by foot. Yep, you can run a leisurely 5k, a more competitive trail 10k, or 30 minutes of laps up and down Pepi’s Face. You can get muddy or even bag a trail run with your pup.

    Biking more your thing? Put your wheels to the road or the trails. Don’t consider yourself a hill-climber? Take it easy and swing by the Bosch booth for a spin on one of their sweet eBikes. You can check out the latest in pedal-assisted tech while you zoom through East Vail Village.

    And if you need to chill out and stretch out after all that activity, check out the full lineup of yoga classes in the Klean Kanteen Zen Zone.

  • Refuel right

    It’s a fact that you’ll need to refuel after all that activity. But before you fill up on pizza and beer, check out the four course Whole30 dinner hosted by the Whole30 founder herself, Melissa Hartwig. It’ll be served family-style at Larkspur. You can bet this one’s going to be healthy AF.

    With ski traffic melted away, cheaper summer lodging, and a whole host of activities for all, the GoPro Mountain Games are calling — and you must go!
