The Winter Dew is back! Coming to Breckenridge on its only winter stop, the Dew Tour brings together the world’s best athletes in extreme winter sports. The competition includes slope style and super pipe and includes both skiing and snowboarding. Athletes include Shaun White, Scotty Lago, Louie Vito, Tom Wallisch, Nick Goepper, Kelly Clark and more.
The New format of the 2012 Dew Tour will feature more competitions, including ski and snowboard big air, as well as a Film Night and concert that will take over downtown Breckenridge. Last year’s Dew Cup winner, Louie Vito, will aim to gain his third consecutive Cup during the winner-takes-all weekend.
Along with the competition the Dew Tour has been known for its cutting edge music and free concerts. This year is no exception as Hip-hop artists Macklemore & Ryan Lewis headline the weekend with a live show at the Riverwalk Center in downtown Breckenridge on Saturday, Dec. 15th. Known for their unique beats, candid lyricism, and catchy choruses, Macklemore and his producer Ryan Lewis hit the Dew Tour on the heels of releasing their album The Heist, which topped iTunes’ Albums chart and debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200. After two sold-out national tours in 2011 and a combined 60 million views on YouTube, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have proven their ability to excite crowds with their energetic live performances.
This year the Dew tour will celebrate the contributions of film in mountain sports with the inaugural Film Night. Taking place December 13th at the Riverwalk Center, the Film Night will feature the year’s most influential and progressive movies and hear live commentary from the directors, producers and athletes involved in making them. Fans will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorites before the Dew Tour declares the iON Viewer’s Choice Award winner on Sunday, Dec. 16. Athletes will also have their opinion heard through the Athlete’s Choice Award, also to be announced on Dec. 16 on the Dew Tour Facebook page.
This year the village area will be bigger and better than ever. The Dew Tour Experience will be at the Peak 8 Base Area and will feature boots and attractions from the Dew Tour and its sponsors. The Dew Tour Experience will be FREE for everyone. There will be many awesome activities and events to enjoy including athlete autograph signings, giveaways, activities and more.
