    Click here for more information including schedule, results, and FAQs.

    In its fifth year of showcasing the world’s top freeski and snowboard athletes competing in slopestyle and superpipe events, the Winter Dew Tour kicks off its nationwide tour once again at Breckenridge Ski Resort from December 12-15, 2013 with the Dew Tour Mountain Championships.

    Public events complement the competitions, including the Festival Village, specialty competitions, and live music and parties in town. Boasting the largest media platform in all of winter action sports, The Winter Dew Tour will be televised live on NBC, with additional domestic and international programming reaching more than 200 million households worldwide.

    The Dew Tour’s new format for 2012 includes an expansion of events throughout the weekend, bringing the action sports and lifestyle festival to Breckenridge. The world’s best skiers and snowboarders will throw it down on the mountain while the lifts are running, with the spotlight swinging to the Riverwalk Center and downtown area in the evenings, featuring a Film Night recognizing the most influential and progressive films of the season. The Dew Tour Mountain Championships will also include a concert, set to be announced at a later date.

    The 2013 Dew Tour Mountain Championships will feature the top names in men’s and women’s snowboarding hitting the Dew Tour Superpipe and Slopestyle course. Olympic gold medalist Shaun White will bring his one-of-a-kind tricks to the Superpipe, while Iouri Podladtchikov and fun-loving Frends Scotty Lago and Jack and Luke Mitrani attempt to keep him off of the podium. Last year’s Dew Cup winner, Louie Vito, will aim to gain his third consecutive Cup during the winner-takes-all weekend. Several snowboarders will be splitting their time between hitting features on the Slopestyle course and triple corking in the Dew Tour’s debut Big Air contest. Mark McMorris, Sebastien Toutant, Torstein Horgmo and Breckenridge local Eric Willett are sure to be pushing the progression of snowboarding as Dew Tour kicks off the 2012-2013 winter season.

    Freestyle skiing events will see the athletes sizing each other up after an off-season spent training for one of the sport’s biggest stages at the Dew Tour. Simon Dumont and Tanner Hall will meet in the Superpipe, hoping their experience is enough to overtake Kevin Rolland, the winner of last year’s Dew Cup. Breckenridge team skier Bobby Brown will attempt to use home slope advantage against Nick Goepper and previous Dew Cup champ Tom Wallisch on the Slopestyle course. The three will also be among those competing in Big Air.

    The Dew Tour Mountain Championships will be showcased across 11 broadcast hours on NBC and NBC Sports Network and across an all-new digital platform with live streaming, plus exclusive behind the scenes and in-depth content on dewtour.com. The new broadcast platform will offer coverage from every day of the event and more live Dew Tour coverage on NBC and NBC Sports Network than any previous year.

    Mountain Travel Symposium
    Location: Breckenridge
    April 10, 2014 - April 16, 2014

    Breckenridge Ski Resort announced today, in conjunction with the Breckenridge Resort Chamber and the Town of Breckenridge, that Breck has been selected to host the 2014 Mountain Travel Symposium next season, set to take place April 10-16, 2014.

    Mountain Travel Symposium is the largest gathering of mountain travel professionals, including ski resorts and property management companies, in North America.

    “Thanks to a combined bid effort between the Breckenridge Ski Resort, the Breck Resort Chamber, Beaver Run Resort, and the Town of Breckenridge, we are happy to announce that Breck has won the right to host the Mountain Travel Symposium for the first time since the early 1980s,” said Kieran Cain, Director of Marketing & Sales for Breckenridge Ski Resort.

    “A lot has changed in Breck since then, and we are excited to show off Breck as one of the premier travel destinations in the world to industry professionals. Next year’s event will fall directly in the middle of our month-long Breck Spring Fever festival, and the combination of this and the opening of our brand new terrain at Peak 6 will make the 2014 MTS event one to truly remember.”

    The theme of the 2014 MTS in Breck will be “It’s About the People,” and will reflect the opportunity of some of the world’s top mountain destination travel professionals to interact with each other, but also to experience the legendary spirit and character of the local residents of Breckenridge.

    The Mountain Travel Symposium (MTS) is the largest gathering of mountain travel professionals in North America and draws approximately 1,200 participants from around the world to conduct business during the Trade, Group, and Meeting and Incentive Conference and Exhibition (MICE) Exchanges. A two-day professional development Forum featuring nationally known speakers is part of the week-long Symposium.
