USSA free skiing and snowboarding selection event
The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has announced an additional free skiing and snowboarding selection event for the U.S. Olympic free skiing and snowboarding teams. In partnership with Alli Sports, the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships have been named the fifth selection event. The Dew Tour will be held in Breckenridge, Colo., Dec. 12-15.
Competitors will use the slopestyle, halfpipe and snowboarding events to vie for a spot on the 2014 team. The USSA is responsible for entry and judging criteria of all of the qualifying events. The association is responsible for preparing U.S. athletes for national and international competition. Criteria must be consistent across all five events.
The Dew Tour is a celebrated event that hosts three separate locations for beach, city and mountain sports. The superpipe and slopestyle snowboard and free skiing events will be showcased at the winter tour. The event showcases live music, sponsors and a lot of thrilling entertainment every year. After the Dew Tour, there will be one more qualifying event for the Olympic team, so you can be sure that boarders and skiers will be riding their best. It is always a good show – Olympic selection event or not.
