The annual Winter Dew Tour is going to remain in Colorado for at least the next two years, but today it was announced that the tour is going to be heading up the road a piece to a new venue.

After spending the last decade at Breckenridge, the Winter Dew Tour is going to be held at neighboring Copper Mountain.

“Physically, our move is just down the road in Colorado, but we feel the Dew Tour will take on new life at Copper, which has long been a preferred destination for elite action sports athletes,” said Courtney Gresik, president and general manager of Dew Tour.

Copper Mountain is quite familiar with winter action sports. Being part of the POWDR resort group, the mountain is home to one of the many Woodward facilities from around the U.S. These facilities are geared towards molding young people into the action sports stars of tomorrow. That, combined with having large competitions in the past, makes for the potential of a wonderful partnership for Copper and Dew Tour.

“Copper, and its parent company POWDR, truly get the vision of Dew Tour, which is to bring together the world’s best skateboarders, snowboarders, skiers, artists, brands and fans in a celebration of creativity and style,” adds Gresik. “Copper is well-seasoned in hosting world-class events, including the annual U.S. Grand Prix and the USASA Nationals. Athletes know Copper Mountain and the quality of its parks and pipe. We are ready to get started on taking the event to a whole new level in terms of event progression and service to the athletes and fans.”

For the next two years, the event will be held at Copper Mountain. The dates for the upcoming event are February 6-9, 2020. The four-day winter Dew Tour will include the world’s best male and female skiers and snowboarders competing in individual halfpipe, slopestyle and para snowboard competitions, Dew Tour’s signature Team Challenge competition and a calendar of fan-based activities. Spectators will have a front-row seat to the action out of Copper’s Center Village where the event stage, sponsor activations, and Team Challenge will take place. Slopestyle will be held in Copper’s Central Park, an elite-level mountain park facility, and the halfpipe events will conveniently sit just above the base of Center Village. The Dew Tour festival experience will include live music on the Dew Tour main stage as well as a sponsor village, pro athlete photo-ops, poster signings and more. The Dew Tour is free and open to the public.
