When you let hundreds of adrenaline junkies run loose in the mountains there’s bound to be some broken bones and bloody noses. That’s pretty much how the TEVA Mountain Games will go down. The country’s top adventure sport athletes head to Vail willing to sacrifice their limbs for a spot on the podium. The Games include everything from freestyle mountain bike competitions to whitewater kayak races, bouldering championships to doggie big air challenges. And, unlike those wannabe-Euro nightclubs you frequent, there’s no cover charge. Admission to the games is free along with live concerts and film screenings.
