For those who missed the action of Vail's 2011 Teva Mountain Games in June or just didn't get enough of the nation's premier outdoor adventure sporting event, grab the remote control and plan to be in front of your TV set Saturday, July 30, as the one-hour special, produced and nationally syndicated by Jalbert Productions, Inc., will air at 12:00 noon (MDT) on Denver's KMGH-TV, the local ABC affiliate.

“There were so many great stories that comprised the tenth anniversary Teva Mountain Games,” explained Michael Imhof, Vice President of Sales and Operations for the Vail Valley Foundation, “and there is certainly no shortage of exciting action, thrills and spills in the television show. I had the good fortune to go New York for the final stages of editing with Jalbert and the final product is excellent.”

The show will showcase the historic gold medal tie in the Bud Light Steep Creek Championships kayak competition, presented by Thule, as well as the Austrian double gold day of ISFC World Cup Climbing, courtesy of Killian Fischhuber and Anna Stohr.

Other highlights will include the inaugural Maui Jim SUP Surf Cross event, presented by C4 Waterman, the four-event GNC Ultimate Mountain Challenge, powered by Goal Zero and the always entertaining Eukanuba DockDogs canine events, along with the overall mountain lifestyle that is so much a part of the event, including the Bud Light Mountains of Music free concert series.

Jalbert Productions was conceived during the filming of “Downhill Racer”, a 1969 feature film, starring Robert Redford, for which Joe Jay Jalbert provided technical direction, stunt skiing and POV camera work. The experience lit a spark in Jalbert and became the impetus to the founding of JPI in 1970.

The Teva Mountain Games is a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information on the Mountain Games, visit www.tevamountaingames.com. For additional information on the Vail Valley Foundation, check out www.vvf.org.
