With the world’s best snowboard and freeski athletes taking main stage at Mount Snow for the Winter Dew Tour Finals – The Toyota Championship, you would think the last thing on anyone’s mind would be a local school playground. However, creating a community binding experience is exactly what the Winter Dew Tour and Mount Snow committed to in year two of partnering for this nationally televised event.
When trying to decide between the plethora of charities one stood above the rest, The Dover School Playground Project. The Dover School is raising money for a new playground that is used on a daily basis by its almost 100 students and countless other town residents.
During the Winter Dew Tour,February 4-7, raffle tickets will be sold for a chance to win one of two autographed snowboards by some of the top athletes in the series including Danny Davis, Scotty Lago, Tyler Flanagan, Andreas Wiig, Simon Dumont, Mike Riddle and Jen Hudak along with art from local area artists from Mountain Dew’s Dew Underground program. Each raffle tickets will cost $5 and can be purchased at the Winter Dew Tour Information Tent in Festival Village, Guest Services in The Clocktower, the Marketing Front Desk on the third floor of the Main Base Lodge and the Grand Summit Hotel Front Desk. All of the proceeds raised from the raffle go directly to the Dover School Playground Project.
There will also be two signature concerts at the Snow Barn with $5 from each admission fee donated to the charity. Friday night, February 5th is the Verizon Wireless Dew Tour Concert Series at the Snow Barn with The Constellations opening for Alberta Cross. Saturday is the Winter Dew Tour’s Dew Cup Awards Show where overall series champions will be crowned. 40 Ounces to Freedom will be performing live and again $5 from each admission goes to the Dover School Playground Project. Tickets for both shows are available online at mountsnow.com/snowbarn or Allisports.com
