See you at the 2014 GoPro Mountain Games.
Winter Mountain Games
The third installment of Vail’s Winter Mountain Games will come during February of 2016 as the Vail Valley Foundation has made the decision to place a two-year hiatus on the hosting of the celebration of winter mountain lifestyle and sport. The decision was made in order to help facilitate the ramp up to the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
“The Winter Mountain Games have developed a tremendous following in its first two years of existence,” explained Foundation president Ceil Folz. “Unfortunately, the event’s early February timeframe becomes problematic for us as organizers during the winter of 2015 when it would fall during the World Championships. The important thing to remember is that we are committed to bringing the Winter Mountain Games back in 2016.”
