If you skipped the action in Vail this weekend at the 10th annual Teva Mountain Games, never fear: Students from the Outside Adventure Film School camp held in conjunction with the games will be getting their footage featured online shortly (click here for an hour's worth of awesome from the 2010 Games). In the meantime, here are two sick and potentially sick-making videos from this weekend's festivities that put portable HD GoPro cameras to dizzying good use, documenting Mike Montgomery's winning run in the Mountain Bike Slopestyle competition and a look at Nick Troutman's Steep Creek Kayak Race run, as seen from the front of his boat:
Full results from this weekend's competitions are online now, and there are lots of fun video clips and photos from the weekend on the Mountain Games' Facebook page. And if you're kicking yourself for missing that Outside Adventure Film School camp, then check out their 2011 Aspen Adventure Filmmakers Workshop this week, June 9-12 ($749), held in conjunction with this weekend's Outside in Aspen festival.
