Dew Tour is proud to announce a return to Breckenridge, Colorado on December 8–11 with a newly revamped ski and snowboard competition. This year marks Dew Tour's tenth season at Breck, and although the event has become known as the preeminent kickoff to competitive season, both the courses and format have been completely reimagined for 2016.
Following the success of the Long Beach skateboard event, Dew Tour brings the Team Challenge to snow, allowing invited ski and snowboard brands will build teams of specialized riders who will compete on Dew Tour's unique three-course layout, including modified Superpipe, and a slopestyle course divided into jump and rail zones.
Dew Tour will also host individual Superpipe and slopestyle competitions, run on the same courses, featuring the world's best snowboarders and skiers including Danny Davis and Gus Kenworthy, who is returning to defend his freeski slopestyle title.
"We are thrilled to bring our new vision of Dew Tour back to Breckenridge as it has a strong history there and we look forward to working with the local community and resort to make it great," said Adam Cozens, Vice President and GM of Dew Tour. "Although in a familiar location, this is a new event. We saw in Long Beach that our new team challenge and dynamic four-part course breathed new life into skateboarding while displaying its diversity, and we are planning to bring that same freshness to our winter event."
In addition to the competition, the four-day event will feature a fully integrated Dew Tour Experience – a winter celebration and intersection of music, action sports culture and technology. TEN: The Enthusiast Network is also thrilled to announce that it's popular winter sports awards shows, the TRANSWORLD SNOWBOARDING Riders Poll Awards and POWDER Awards, will be part of the Dew Tour weekend this year for the first time.
More details on Dew Tour's winter event in Breckenridge will be revealed over the coming months. Stay tuned at Dewtour.com and on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube @Dewtour.
