Competition Format and Disciplines Explained:
The Dew Tour’s signature Team Challenge competition has some exciting new updates this year, as well. Teams will be tasked with building a roster of one male and one female for slopestyle, modified superpipe, and streetstyle disciplines, for a total of six riders per team. Competing this year will be three of the top ski brands—Volkl, Atomic, and Faction—and three of the top snowboard brands—Burton, Oakley, and Volcom, battling it out for their respective overall titles. Each discipline will be the best of a two-run format where athletes will be judged based on overall impression. The best score of the two-run from each male and female athlete in each section counts. These two scores are combined for a total team section score. Scores from all three sections are then totaled up for one overall score, making the highest-scoring team the winner.
This year’s slopestyle competition will have invited riders sessioning three jumps and four rails for a total of seven hits in a single top-to-bottom run. The slopestyle qualifier for men’s ski and snowboard will feature 16 riders and will be given two runs with their top run will be judged on overall impression. The men’s final will take the top nine from the qualifier and include the winner from the 2018 winter Dew Tour. The women’s ski and snowboard slopestyle go straight into a final with a field size of eight competitors. Both the men’s and women’s slopestyle finals are judged on their best run out of three.
Athletes competing in the pipe have the challenge of tackling the modified superpipe course. Ten men and eight women in ski and snowboard disciplines will head straight into a final and will be judged on their best one run out of three.
