Dew Tour Comes To Sun Peaks With New Am Series

Mar 11, 2014

Author: Mountain Dew

Sun Peaks Resort in BC will play host to the first-ever Canadian Dew Tour AM Series (DTAS), Canada’s premier amateur ski and snowboard slopestyle event, from March 27-29, 2014, as amateur male and female athletes battle it out. DTAS is focused on recognizing and rewarding top amateur athletes with a cash purse of $20,000 CAD amongst Men and Women equally, aswell as a VIP trip to the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado for all of our 1st place finishers.  

 
The AM Series competition is open to amateur male and female ski and snowboard athletes who reside in North America and are looking to elevate their status and recognition in Canada.   There will be 80 Qualifier spots for both ski and snowboard athletes, and the top 10 men and top 5 women per sport will advance to the Finals and join 10 invited men and 5 invited women respectively – for a total of 20 male  and 10 female finalists per sport.
 
There will also be a Rail Jam open to boys and girls 13 to 16 for both Snowboard and Ski.  The Rail Jam is designed for younger beginner/intermediate snowboard and skin athletes seeking to gain competitive experience.
 
“The Dew Tour AM Series aims to create a globally recognized ski and snowboard event that is equally action-packed on the slopes and in the host village,” said Ryan Collis, Director of Marketing for the Mountain Dew brand in Canada.  The two-day event will be supported by a variety of activities, including experiential sampling, on-the-spot prizing, live DJs and a free outdoor concert featuring the Juno-award-winning rock band The Sheepdogs.”
 
As the tour progresses and the AM Series event unfolds, the Dew team will capture and share Dew Nation content via social media platforms.
