Dew Tour @ Breckenridge Peak 8
Dec 11 @ 9:00 am – Dec 17 @ 12:00 pm

The annual winter Dew Tour ski and snowboard competition and festival will return to Breckenridge, Colo. December 13-16, 2018. The four-day event includes the world’s best male and female skiers and snowboarders competing in individual Halfpipe and Slopestyle competitions, Dew Tour’s signature Team Challenge and Streetstyle competitions and a calendar of fan-based activities. Past competitors include Olympic gold medalist and Dew Tour champions Chloe Kim (USA), Nick Goepper (USA), Shaun White (USA), Red Gerard (USA), Gus Kenworthy (USA), Dara Howell (CAN) and others from around the world. This year’s winter Dew Tour will mark the 11th anniversary of the event being held at Breckenridge Ski Resort. The Dew Tour competitions and festival are FREE and open to the public. The 2017 Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge was a milestone event, having served as an Olympic qualifying event for U.S. Snowboarding and Freeskiing, Canada Snowboard Slopestyle and as a points contender for World Para Snowboarding. The event resulted in many athletes qualifying for the Pyeongchang Olympics at Dew Tour, much to the excitement of the crowd who came to meet and cheer on their favorite athletes. “We are excited for the return of the Dew Tour at Breckenridge this December,” said John Buhler, vice president and chief operating officer at Breckenridge Ski Resort. “The event is a great way to celebrate the start of the winter ski and snowboard season, and it’s a fun time be in town, get out on the mountain and catch some of the best freestyle skiers and snowboarders in the world competing at Breck.” “It’s such a great feeling to be heading back to Breckenridge, knowing that athletes, fans and partners really enjoy coming to Breckenridge to kick off the season,” said Adam Cozens, vice president and general manager of Dew Tour. “We are thrilled to have such strong support from the town of Breckenridge and the ski resort. After last year’s intensity for the athletes, I think we will see some incredible progression from the skiers and riders this year at Dew Tour, and we’ll be sure our courses are ready for that.” In addition to the individual competitions in men’s and women’s ski and snowboard Slopestyle and Halfpipe, as well as a para snowboard competition, Dew Tour will include the Team Challenge. It will feature the 12 biggest winter hardgoods brands (six ski and six snowboard) competing in a format that embraces the comradery not often seen in skiing and snowboarding. Each brand will select one team captain and three team athletes to compete.
