In its fifth year of showcasing the world’s top freeski and snowboard athletes competing in slopestyle and superpipe events, the Winter Dew Tour kicks off its nationwide tour once again at Breckenridge Ski Resort from December 12-15, 2013 with the Dew Tour Mountain Championships.
Public events complement the competitions, including the Festival Village, specialty competitions, and live music and parties in town. Boasting the largest media platform in all of winter action sports, The Winter Dew Tour will be televised live on NBC, with additional domestic and international programming reaching more than 200 million households worldwide.
The Dew Tour’s new format for 2012 includes an expansion of events throughout the weekend, bringing the action sports and lifestyle festival to Breckenridge. The world’s best skiers and snowboarders will throw it down on the mountain while the lifts are running, with the spotlight swinging to the Riverwalk Center and downtown area in the evenings, featuring a Film Night recognizing the most influential and progressive films of the season. The Dew Tour Mountain Championships will also include a concert, set to be announced at a later date.
The 2013 Dew Tour Mountain Championships will feature the top names in men’s and women’s snowboarding hitting the Dew Tour Superpipe and Slopestyle course. Olympic gold medalist Shaun White will bring his one-of-a-kind tricks to the Superpipe, while Iouri Podladtchikov and fun-loving Frends Scotty Lago and Jack and Luke Mitrani attempt to keep him off of the podium. Last year’s Dew Cup winner, Louie Vito, will aim to gain his third consecutive Cup during the winner-takes-all weekend. Several snowboarders will be splitting their time between hitting features on the Slopestyle course and triple corking in the Dew Tour’s debut Big Air contest. Mark McMorris, Sebastien Toutant, Torstein Horgmo and Breckenridge local Eric Willett are sure to be pushing the progression of snowboarding as Dew Tour kicks off the 2012-2013 winter season.
Freestyle skiing events will see the athletes sizing each other up after an off-season spent training for one of the sport’s biggest stages at the Dew Tour. Simon Dumont and Tanner Hall will meet in the Superpipe, hoping their experience is enough to overtake Kevin Rolland, the winner of last year’s Dew Cup. Breckenridge team skier Bobby Brown will attempt to use home slope advantage against Nick Goepper and previous Dew Cup champ Tom Wallisch on the Slopestyle course. The three will also be among those competing in Big Air.
The Dew Tour Mountain Championships will be showcased across 11 broadcast hours on NBC and NBC Sports Network and across an all-new digital platform with live streaming, plus exclusive behind the scenes and in-depth content on dewtour.com. The new broadcast platform will offer coverage from every day of the event and more live Dew Tour coverage on NBC and NBC Sports Network than any previous year.
The Dew Tour Mountain Championships will be free to attend giving fans access to be a part of the best snowboarding and freestyle skiing competitions and check out the Dew Tour Experience with autograph signings, giveaways and more.
