The Teva Mountain Games kicked off yesterday in Vail, Colorado for the largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music in the United States. Pro and amateur athletes, as well as a few of the canine variety, flocked to the rivers and mountains of Vail to compete for glory.
Osprey is on hand to join in the fun as well as to offer a sneak peek into our new line of packs, custom pack fittings as well as great prizes throughout the weekend.
If you’re in Vail, we hope to see you around this weekend. If not, we’ll be sure to catch you next time! Happy Friday!
We see a lot of great photos and videos throughout the week. So, we thought it was high time we started rounding up some of our faves each week and highlighting one on Friday to inspire weekend adventures. We call it the Osprey Round Up.
Teva Mountain Games. The country’s largest celebration of mountain sport, soul and culture draws professional and amateur outdoor adventure athletes from the Vail Valley and around the world to the mountains and rivers of Vail to compete in seven sports and 21 disciplines including: x-country, freeride, slopestyle and road cycling, freestyle, 8-Ball, sprint and extreme kayaking, raft paddlecross, World Cup bouldering, as well as trail and road running, and the Ultimate Mountain Challenge.
If you are anywhere near beautiful, downtown Vail Village, Colorado this weekend you need to seriously check out the heady buzz that is the Teva Mountain Games. A Celebration of Mountain Sports, The Games are a veritable Olympics of mountain sports-and we isn’t talkin’ curling! World class pro athletes and folks just like you and me(well, maybe not like me) compete in all the best of mountain sports including multiple disciplines of cycling, running, kayaking, climbing, and even fly-fishing. Hell, there are even competitions for dogs and kids, which truly make this an event suited for everyone.
Osprey is celebrating the Games with a Gear Town presence in Vail Village just across the boulevard from the fantastic folks at the Bag and Pack Shop (also with a location in Avon, CO) with 20% off any Osprey Pack throughout next weekend.
