After months of anticipation the 2024 GoPro Mountain Games are here!

The nonprofit Vail Valley Foundation, which hosts the event each year, is stoked to welcome athletes, spectators, music and art lovers, and of course our four-legged friends to this jam-packed version of the best all-around mountain sports and culture event available anywhere in the world.

What’s new?

For those who have attended before – or for first-timers – here’s a look at what’s new at the GoPro Mountain Games.

Where did these cool new innovations come from? YOU – the athletes, fans, and spectators of this beloved event.

“We stay tapped into the ever-changing culture of outdoor sports and recreation,” said the Vail Valley Foundation’s Dave Dressman, who serves as the GoPro Mountain Games Event Director. “We listen to feedback from the athletes, our partners, and those who attend the Mountain Games. This helps us keep things fresh and vibrant and we are inspired every year by those who compete and attend the event as they are the ones who provide the energy and excitement that make the Mountain Games such a special experience.”

So, here’s a look at what’s new at the 2024 GoPro Mountain Games!
