The Mountain is newly open so that means one thing, Dew Tour is fast approaching. Professional athletes from around the world have descended on the parks to train for the 2013 Dew Tour Mountain Championships.
Breck is the only winter stop for the Dew Tour and from December 12-15 will be the best place to see your favorite Olympic hopeful. Events include ski and snowboard superpipe and slopestyle on Breckenridge award winning Freeway Park and Pipe. 2014 Sochi Olympics will see the addition of slopestyle so the Dew Tour will have a lot of excitement for American athletes to qualify.
Off mountain activities include Dew Tour Showcases at the Riverwalk Center exhibiting the past season’s most notable film in the ski and snowboard industry. Of course with the weekend comes time to PARTY! Streetstyle event under the lights of downtown Breckenridge. Where riders will take to an urban course set up right off Main St. Saturday night brings Fitz and The Tantrums to the Riverwalk center, be sure to get your tickets in advance HERE- this show will sell out.
