It isn’t easy to explain the GoPro MountainGames, but I will try. Vail, Colorado is the home of the games and is no stranger to big events, hosting the World Cup and World Championships for skiing, biking, climbing, kayaking, etc. They even hosted a TedX event last winter, where my daughter Emily gave a presentation called “Uncompromised.”
But this is about the GoPro Mountain Games, an amazing mix of outdoor-loving athletes, enthusiasts, spectators, and companies. No event would be complete without the gear that you use for outdoor fun being displayed, sold, and generally shown off and the GoPro Mountain Games has the awesome toys of the outdoors in spades! Some of my favorites: Winnebago had their “Travado,” a new very cool RV.
Once we got into Colorado, we made it from Denver to Buena Vista for our first event of what we call the “Colorado Tour”, the BV Pro Freestyle Kayaking event and CKS Paddlefest. The drive from Denver to “BV” really is a reminder that “we are not in Kansas anymore, Toto.” We go up in the mountains and the snow goes from what you see “up there” to what you see all around you. The open valleys when you come out of the passes are my favorite part of the drive. You can see for miles and miles in what looks like a big bowl surrounded by mountains, snow, and water. Springtime is my favorite time for driving through Colorado as the snow is still covering the peaks, but the driving is easy. We did have one short burst of rain and then snow in our final pass on the way into BV that slowed down our drive a little due to limited visibility. It adds to the adventure, however, and is something you remember. Just a few miles from BV is where I start to get excited about being in that awesome “river town.” Restaurants like Eddyline Brewery, Evergreen Café, and the Asian Palate are favorites of ours that, in combination with Kristine’s cooking in the RV, give us something to really look forward to. The Eddyline Brewery has epic burgers and pizza, and they make their own beer. The “River Runner’s Pale Ale” always gets my attention. If you can get a table, the Evergreen Café is the place for breakfast. The Princeton Benedict (sausage eggs benedict) is amazing. At the Asian Palate, everything is good, including their Mojito and their specialty Sushi Rolls.
