Outdoor World ‘Center of Universe’ found in Vail

With mountains, rivers, music, parties, 45,000 spectators, thousands of athletes, and a $100,000+ prize purse, the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colo., is arguably the greatest outdoor festival on the planet. We just got back from four days at the Games. This video offers our experience crunched to 52 seconds of intense outdoors fun. —Stephen Regenold
