Youth events and activities

The Mountain Games welcomes all generations of outdoor enthusiasts, especially kids (AKA groms). The event has a variety of youth events and activities throughout the Games. Some kids may be aiming for the Mountain Games podium, others may want to enjoy the outdoors and spectate, or simply try a new adventure. No matter the case, the Mountain Games is the place to be.

From fly-fishing clinics to SUP/Kayaking opportunities, slacklining, or the rock climbing wall for kids, and plenty of daytime music, families will find so many FREE things to do at this year’s GoPro Mountain Games, we’ll throw in a good night’s sleep in too! Even the family dog can join the free fun with Yappy Hour in Dog Town, Friday – Sunday. Find a list of all the free festivities online at
