The best all-around mountain experience anywhere in the world comes to Vail when the Winter Mountain Games gets underway February 25-27, 2022.

Thousands of pro and amateur adventure athletes sign up each year and converge upon the mountains of Vail to compete in 4 disciplines and more than 8 competitions including fat tire bike racing, skimo, snowshoe, bootlegger, and more.
