“Outside TV thrives on pushing boundaries and capturing the most compelling adventure story lines.

“The GoPro Mountain Games are truly compelling for any audience, and there is no better organization than OutsideTV to capture the key story lines and share the action from this event,” says Dave Dressman, vice-president of sales and sponsorship for the Vail Valley Foundation, the nonprofit organization that has hosted the event for the past 9 years. “This is a marriage of like-minded brands; Outside TV has an innate understanding of mountain culture and the talent to tell the story in a captivating way.
