The winter sports season kicks off at Breckenridge Ski Resort and will host the world’s top talent in action sports. Breckenridge will also be the stage for the Open Qualifiers where rising freeski and snowboard stars will compete to earn a spot on the remainder of the Tour. As the race for the Dew Cup intensifies so will the size of the pipe, with athletes competing on 22-foot superpipes at Killington Resort and at the Toyota Championship at Snowbasin.
“I’m stoked that the Winter Dew Tour will have 22-foot pipes this season,” said professional snowboarder, Danny Davis. “The level of riding and amplitude that we can get on the larger pipe makes all of the difference. Fans can expect to see some awesome competitions all season long.”
“We’ve seen tremendous growth over the past two seasons and expect our third to be no different,” said Chris Prybylo, General Manager of the Winter Dew Tour. “Adding Killington and taking the pipe to 22 feet at our final two stops positions us for our best season yet.”
