The International Bridge in Vail Village is the centerpoint of the Games. Located between The Sitzmark Lodge and Checkpoint Charlie, the International Bridge is where to watch freestyle kayaking, the ever competitive SUP boarding and seriously impressive slack lining. Expect fast moving water this year with all the late season snow along with the great, warmer weather!

At Dog Town at the base of the EagleBahn Gondola in Lionshead Village, see pups fly, but watch out for the splash zone! The Dock Dogs competition is fun for the whole family and brings in dog athletes from around the country. A world class rock climbing wall located in the mountain plaza next to Gondola One is not only a crowd
favorite but also the only World Cup Climbing event in the United States. Come watch some of the best climbers in the world chalk up and navigate the wall.

Music has a large presence at the games, with stages set up in Gear Town and Dog Town for bands to perform throughout the day but when the sun goes down the music doesn’t stop. Head over to the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for free concerts. Bands include Langhorne Slim & The Law, Citizen Cope and Joan Osborne. There is music all day, every day to check out. Also, for the athlete in search of fun, there are fun runs, yoga, happy hours, and giveaways.

Bring the family as the activities for kids are plentiful and fun! The free Nature Valley Adventure Village hosts a climbing wall, kayaking, slack-lining, and games. Make sure to stroll through the L.L. Bean Gear Town to collect swag, food, visit beer gardens and the huge collection of outdoor brands, and lots of daily giveaways!
