Vail Colorado in the Summer

With all the Pandemic restrictions this year, let’s see what this year’s games will bring us. What other changes should we all expect this year?

The GoPro Mountain Games typically feature sponsor tents and activations from more than 140 sponsors, known as “Gear Town.” Additionally, some competition venues will be eliminated, and others will be moved to create firm boundaries where capacity and physical distancing can be managed. We will also have caps on athlete numbers depending on the event and venue.

Remember that the Town of Vail and its hotels, restaurants, and outdoor hiking and biking trails will remain open and active during the GoPro Mountain Games. Visitors are encouraged to visit the Town of Vail and enjoy it while adhering to state and local public health guidelines.

Michael Franti & Spearhead

Michael Franti is a musician, humanitarian, filmmaker, and activist recognized as a music industry pioneer. He believes that a great battle is taking place today between cynicism and optimism, so he made his most recent album, Stay Human Vol. II, his highest charting album to date, to remind himself – and anyone who’s listening – that there is still good in the world and that it is worth fighting for. The songs on Stay Human Vol. I was inspired by Franti’s new self-directed documentary, Stay Human, released in January and won many awards at film festivals worldwide.

Each pair of online tickets purchased comes with one digital or physical CD copy of Michael Franti’s upcoming album, due out later this year. (maximum of 8 albums per household). After your ticket purchase, you’ll receive an additional email with instructions on redeeming your album in the coming weeks.
