Get into the action.

Grab your VIP media pass and your camera and come to the GoPro Mountain Games. With over 50,000 in attendance every year, there is plenty of opportunity to get cameras wet, muddy, and focus on world-class athletes, music, and art.

Unlike a normal spectator, you’ll get up-close to the action by entering roped off areas. We’ll help you pre-arrange access to athletes, or skip the crowd concert mob and be front & center at the stage. You’ll learn how to approach athletes for interviews, and hone your story as you work.
