Vail Marriott Mountain Resort Takes Adventure to New Heights with Special Summer Deal

Feeling adventurous, but not enough to challenge the laws of gravity in slope-style mountain biking or the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail? No need to fear.

The Vail Marriott Mountain Resort has a solution that will allow guests to discover great hiking, biking and rafting at their speed while taking in the excitement of the GoPro Games from June 6-9, earning resort credit and relaxing in luxury after an action-packed day. The Vail resort is offering $50 in resort credit for every night booked plus complimentary room upgrades to tempt travelers. The resort credit will be applied to applicable charges on the guest bill at check-out and can be used towards fabulous on-site amenities gI_88126_WHRCO picsuch as Golden Leaf Spa and the Vail resort’s three outstanding restaurants.

The GoPro Mountain Games are the largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music in the United States. Professional and amateur athletes from around the world will gather in Vail to compete in nine sports and 25 disciplines for cash prizes of more than $100,000. Sports at this year’s Games include full-contact and freestyle kayaking; mountain, road and slope-style biking; sprint and cross stand-up paddling; mud and long-distance running; fly fishing, and rafting.

Extreme sports lovers also will appreciate music and art during the Games. Ballyhoo, a rock band with punk energy and pop reggae grooves, will offer a free concert to kick off the opening ceremonies. Austin, Texas-based Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears are scheduled to bring their blues, soul and R&B sound, while Grouplove will perform their hits “Tongue Tied,” “Colours” and “Itchin on a Photograph.” 

Filmmakers from across the country also will showcase their newest outdoor movies with question-and-answer sessions following the screenings. Spectating is free, as is admission to concerts, films and expo areas with the latest gear. Some of the events for the GoPro Mountain Games are being held within walking distance of the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort, so guests will find a little extra adventure during their stays.
