Our Events

In addition to partnering some of the world’s top athletes, Gore sponsors major events within the mountain sports community.

Gore-Tex Transalpine Run

Today, the GORE-TEX Transalpine Run has become one of the most popular endurance stage events in the world.


For over a decade the GORE-TEX brand and the European Outdoor Film Tour (EOFT) have been staging the outdoor community’s landmark film event.

Our Sponsoring Guidelines

Sponsorship is an integral part of our business. We value the dedication and commitment of professional athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who embark on exceptional adventures and projects around the world.

We’re proud to work with them by offering garments, footwear and accessories—produced by the brands we partner with—from both our original GORE-TEX products range and our GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ products range. And we’re proud that those products offer comfort and protection to these athletes and ambassadors when they need it most.

Deep Winter Photo Challenge

This annual event at Whistler Blackcomb pits outdoor photographers against one another to capture the best photo and claim the title "King/Queen of Storms".

Over the course of three days, six of the ski and snowboard industries’ top photographers set out to steal souls and capture gold.

The Arc'teryx Deep Winter Photo Challenge presented by the GORE-TEX brand invites six photographers to team up with top athletes of their choice to capture the best photo of the epic powder days, stormy conditions, and deep tree skiing that characterize Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. The photographers have less than 3 days to shoot pictures in and around Whistler/Blackcomb and find the perfect landscape, abstract, and action photos. Top shots are pulled together into dramatic slideshows, and a distinguished group of judges selects the winners. Awards are presented in front of a live crowd -- who also gets to participate in the action by voting to decide who receives the People's Choice Award.
