Dew Tour Preview: The Modified Superpipe Returns
Dew Tour will run Feb. 6-9 at a new location in Colorado.
Dew Tour kicks off tomorrow at Copper Mountain in Colorado for four days of ski and snowboard competition. The event, which is a collaboration between Mountain Dew and the Adventure Sports Network, follows ESPN-owned X Games two weeks ago.
From Feb. 6-9, the world’s top skiers and snowboarders, including many such as Scotty James and Tess Ledeux who took gold last week at Winter X, will compete across a number of disciplines, such as superpipe, slopestyle, para snowboard and street style. Dew Tour likes to be the more playful, experimental of the two winter events. It doesn’t just have a superpipe, it has a modified superpipe with added ramps and ridges to give riders more freestyle flexibility. It doesn’t just have a terrain park, it has a snowy obstacle course with ramps, walls and storage containers blocking the path for Dew Tour street style.
The Dew Tour is moving to Copper after an 11-year run at Breckenridge. Slopestyle will be held in Copper’s Central Park, an elite-level mountain park facility, while the Modified Superpipe and Streetstyle events will be just above the base of Center Village. As always the event is free and open to the public. Schedule:
Thursday: Winter Dew will kick off with Women’s Ski Modified Superpipe finals, Men’s Ski Slopestyle Qualifiers and the Snowboard Team Challenge. Friday: The Ski Team Challenge, Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle qualifier and the Men’s and Women’s Adaptive Snowboard Banked Slalom Final
Saturday: Women’s Snowboard Modified Superpipe, Men’s Snowboard and Men’s Ski Slopestyle finals, Men’s Streetstyle finals, and both Women’s Pro and G.W.R. (Girls Who Ride) Women’s Streetstyle ski and snowboard event finals.
Sunday: Men’s Ski Modified Superpipe, Men’s Snowboard Superpipe, Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle and Women’s Ski Slopestyle.
