Dew Tour is proud to announce that we will be adding a men's and women's adaptive snowboarding competition to the reimagined competition and winter festival coming to Breckenridge, Colorado. Our Adaptive Competition, presented by Toyota, and in partnership with Adaptive Action Sports, will take place on Friday, December 9.
Already confirmed to attend is Toyota's snowboarding athlete and Paralympian Amy Purdy. Adaptive Action Sports, co-founded by Purdy and her husband Daniel Gale, have partnered with Dew Tour and Toyota to be involved in every step of the competition from the course build to the contest details.
"We are so grateful to have an ongoing partnership with Toyota who believes in inclusion and innovation which is a key to our success and we couldn’t be more excited to have Dew Tour as a platform to share the sport we are so passionate about with the world," said Purdy. "Not only will Dew Tour give us a platform to share these amazing athletes and stories with the world but to also show what is possible in each and every one of us.
Our Adaptive Competition will bring 23 of the best snowboarding athletes in the world to Breckenridge Ski Resort. Each competitor will take three single runs with their final score based on their fastest time.
The women's adaptive snowboard final will take place at 11:30 am MDT and the men's competition will follow starting at 12:45 pm MDT. Coverage of the adaptive competition will be highlighted on DewTour.com, along with a spot on the NBC TV special airing on December 24.
Dew Tour and Toyota will also be giving back to Adaptive Action Sports all weekend long by donating dollars each time an event-goer takes a Toyota out for a spin at the Toyota's Ride N' Drive event taking place at the Blue River Plaza in downtown Breckenridge as part of the Dew Tour Festival.
