LEKI Signs on as GoPro Mountain Games Official Camp Chair Provider


BUFFALO, NY – LEKI, a leading manufacturer of Skiing, Trekking and Nordic Walking poles and gloves, and most recently folding chairs and tables, has signed on as the Official Camp Chair Provider of the 2016 GoPro Mountain Games (June 9-12 in Vail, CO). As part of the agreement, LEKI will provide 100 custom event branded chairs as lawn seating for the weekend’s GoPro Outdoor Reels film series and SUP, Kayak and Rafting events on Gore Creek.

This marks the first year LEKI will be involved in the GoPro Mountain Games, promoting the brand’s new lightweight and packable camp furniture that is ideal for summer festivals and other outdoor adventures. The branded chairs will also be available for sale in the LEKI booth during the Games, and the Vail Valley Foundation will use the remaining branded chairs for lawn seating at their Showdown Town summer concerts in Eagle, CO and other outdoor events during the warm weather months.

“We are looking forward to this partnership with the Vail Valley Foundation as we kick off the summer camping and festival season” said Greg Wozer, VP of LEKI USA. “The GoPro Mountain Games is the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, music, and mountain lifestyle and provides the perfect audience and venue to debut our new folding chairs.

“I remember using LEKI poles as a kid learning to ski back East. It’s been a solid brand for that long! The poles are a natural fit for both our snow sports and summer events, and the contribution of the branded GoPro Mountain Games camp chairs is a welcome addition that many of our event attendees will enjoy for quite some time. We’re excited to have LEKI on board for what we hope will be a long run of events,” said Greg Bloom, GoPro Mountain Games and Vail Valley Foundation Sponsorship Sales Director.
