Breckenridge Celebrates 25 Years Of Snowboarding (30-Aug-09)

Breckenridge, USA, August 30, 2009 - This season will be the 150th anniversary

This season will be the 150th anniversary of the founding of the town of Breckenridge, Colorado, and will also mark 25 years of snowboarding at Breckenridge Ski Resort.

The resort was one of the first to embrace snowboarding, and to host one of the initial major snowboard competitions in the industry, The World Snowboarding Championships, or “The World’s,” in 1986.

Today, snowboarding has made its mark on the ski industry worldwide and is a major component of the ‘Breckenridge experience.’ The resort continues its support of the snowboarding community and industry by hosting major events such as the Winter Dew Tour, and fostering the careers of up-and-comers through the Breckenridge FreeRide Team and open qualifying events.

The resort has four terrain parks and three pipes, including the top-ranked Freeway Terrain Park/Pipe and a park progression system for beginners and intermediates.  

The Winter Dew Tour returns to Breckenridge for its second year on December 17 – 20. The tour consists of three major, multi-sport events spanning across the US, with a cumulative points system, and a $1.5 million competitive purse.

Each event features men and women’s snowboard (superpipe and slopestyle), and men’s freeskiing (superpipe and slopestyle). At season’s end, the overall point’s leaders in the six disciplines are crowned  champions and awarded the prestigious Dew Cup.
