The Teva Mountain Games have become a staple of the summer events in the Colorado mountains, and seems to get bigger and bigger every year.
The 11th annual Teva Mountain Games took place in Vail, May 31-June 3, 2012. The festival is the nation’s largest celebration of adventure sports, lifestyle and music featuring top professional and amateur athletes from around the world. Approximately 2,500 athletes were in attendance on Vail’s mountains and rivers to compete in eight sports and 24 disciplines for over $100,000 in prize money. Competitions at the festival included: kayaking, rafting, stand-up paddling, mountain biking, road cycling, World Cup bouldering, fly-fishing, trail running and a road half marathon. The festival also features: a film series, Outdoor Reels; a photography competition, Mountain Click; an interactive expo area, Gear Town; DockDog canine competitions; free concerts at Mountains of Music and the Teva Mountain Ball. The Teva Mountain Games are a project of the Vail Valley Foundation.
PeakVibe’s media team was at the event to enjoy the festivities and to provide a look at one of Colorado’s premiere summer events.
