Winter Dew Tour 2024 announces its stacked athlete roster of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders who will be competing at Copper Mountain, Colorado, from March 8-10.
Nearly 100 of the world’s top athletes will compete in men’s and women’s individual ski and snowboard Superpipe and Streetstyle, as well as the Superpipe High Air & Best Trick Jam. Celebrating 20 years of Dew Tour history, fans will enjoy a weekend of front-row action for every Winter Dew Tour competition and concert, as the entire event will be accessible from the base area at Copper’s Center Village.
The Superpipe competitions will be held on Copper’s legendary halfpipe, measuring 500 feet long and 22 feet high. Individual Superpipe Finals events will include top ski and snowboard athletes competing in a best of three runs format. Athlete highlights include the return of women’s 2023 Dew Tour second place finisher and breakout rider Patti Zhou (CHN), as well as 2024 Laax Open winner Mitsuki Ono (JPN) and Maddie Mastro (USA), who took third at the U.S. Grand Prix Mammoth last week. The men’s snowboard competition will welcome back Winter X Games 2024 winner Scotty James (AUS) to battle it out with the likes of Ayumu Hirano (JPN) and MTN DEW athlete and arguably snowboarding’s most stylish rider Danny Davis (USA). The return of women’s ski Superpipe will feature multi-disciplined skier Eileen Gu (USA) and two-time world champion Rachael Karker (CAN); on the men’s side, witness Canadian Brendan Mackay (CAN) in his attempt to defend his 2023 Winter Dew Tour title in a packed field that includes Olympian and 2023 Winter Dew Tour silver medalist David Wise (USA), who has competed at Winter Dew Tour since 2008.
Dew Tour’s signature Streetstyle event will be held throughout the weekend, with finals being held at night under the lights on Friday and Saturday. This year’s course includes five unique features all with varying elements including rails, multiple transfers, boxes and more. Two rounds of judged jam sessions will pare down the field to a three-athlete finals competition in a two runs-combined format. Look for 2023 Winter Dew Tour podium winners Nate Haust (USA) and Benny Milam (USA) to fight for the top spot in the men’s snowboard competition. On the women’s snowboard side, Lex Hernandez-Roland (USA) will look to grab the hat trick win this season, but Jill Perkins (USA), who missed last year due to injury, is back on the roster. For women’s ski, former figure skater turned skier Lisa Zimmermann (GER) blew the competition away last year with a score of 95 in Streetstyle; she will battle a field of hungry skiers, including last year’s second-place finisher Marion Balsamo (USA). The men’s ski lineup is quite seasoned and includes 2023 podium finishers Alex Hall (USA) and Tucker FitzSimons (USA).
Winter Dew Tour also welcomes back the Superpipe High Air & Best Trick Jam. Held at the conclusion of this year’s event, competitors will win cash prizes for best style, amplitude, and creativity, including a U.S. Air Force High Air award for the jam’s biggest air. Current and past Dew Tour legends are sure to put on a show as they drop into this competition for a fun weekend cap of celebrating 20 years of Dew Tour.
An integral part of the weekend is the Dew Tour Experience, a sponsored festival area featuring fun and interactive activities for fans, including athlete signings, giveaways, contests, and more. This year, the concert experience at Winter Dew Tour will feature two nights of outdoor concerts including headliner Ship Wrek with opening act D.J.’s D.C. and Don Fuego on Friday, March 8; and, Snakehips with opening DJ KDJ Above on Saturday, March 9. As always, all Dew Tour competitions and concerts are FREE and open to the public.
