2017 GoPro Mountain Games: Calling all GoProers
One week from today, the GoPro Mountain Games will be kicking off in Vail, CO. This annual event is a culmination of major outdoor & adventure sports, art, music and family fun. In the true GoPro spirit, we are most excited to see the event from your perspective and will be hosting a variety of ways for you to engage with us while enjoying all that Vail Village has to offer.
For those attending the event in Vail, your first stop should be to sign up for our on-site Scavenger Hunt at the GoPro Experience Dome in Gear Town. GoPro will provide you with a shot list and challenges you to turn your shots into an awesome video using the Quik app, available free for iOS and Android. All participants of the scavenger hunt will receive GoPro Swag and the chance to win a Hero5 Black, Karma Grip or Full Karma Drone Kit! Make sure to check out the rules and sign up HERE.
Fancy yourself more of a Photographer than film maker? GoPro Awards has partnered with Vail Valley to offer a unique Mountain Games Challenge as part of the annual Mountain Click Photo Competition. Free for all GoPro submissions, submit your best mountain moments for the opportunity to earn cash! Learn more about the Mountain Click Photo Competition or submit directly to GoPro Awards HERE. Don’t have a GoPro? No Worries – we’ve got loaners at the GoPro Experience Dome in Gear Town.
