Unless you’re one of the pre-qualified athletes listed below, you might be interested to know that regristration for the 3rd season of the Winter Dew Tour is open. The three-stop Tour will kick off at Breckenridge Ski Resort for the Nike 6.0 Open, December 16-19, 2010, then its on to Killington Resort, January 20-23, 2011 and concludes with the Toyota Championships at Snowbasin Resort, February 10-13, 2011.
This year athletes will be competing for total of $1.5 million in prize money. Which ain’t nothing to scoff at. And thanks to some Sponsorship help from Paul Mitchell this upcoming season will also feature expanded women’s freeski slopestyle and superpipe competions at two of the stops. First at the Nike 6.0 Open in Breckenridge, Colo. and then again for the Toyota Championships in Ogden, Utah. Even though it isn’t a Dew Cup discipline, the ladies events will include full athlete fields and will be competing in both prelims and final rounds of competion.
There will be open qualifiers held at the Nike 6.0 Open @ Breck, so if you think you can put some of these pre-qualifier athletes to bed then I suggest you get on your horse and sign up. I’m sure Jossi and Andreas would love to have the added competion. The full and final rosters will be announced prior to each event, with the first round of confirmed athletes for the Nike 6.0 Open being announced on tuesday, November 9th, 2010.
