2023 Copper Mountain Dew Tour Preview
Next weekend, Copper Mountain Resort in Copper, Colo. will welcome back the best freeskiers and snowboarders for two days of unrivaled competition at the Dew Tour. Skiers and snowboarders from around the world will travel to Copper and compete in various events. Dew Tour kicks off Feb. 24th and goes until Sunday, Feb. 26th.
This year, 14 U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes were invited to compete in the slopestyle, halfpipe, super streetstyle, and superpipe high air & best trick jam contests. Dew Tours signature super streetstyle competition will be doubled in size this year which will allow for a larger, more diverse athlete pool and gives onsite spectators a better viewing experience. All invited halfpipe competitors will get the chance to compete in the superpipe high air & best trick jam, where they will showcase their amplitude, creativity, and style.
Olympic gold medalist Alex Hall will be competing in the Dew Tour slopestyle event after having a very successful season thus far, with a silver medal at the Laax Open and multiple top 10 results. Hall will be a great skier to watch out for as he is hungry to add more podiums to his repertoire this season. Joining him will be teammate Colby Stevenson who is coming off of a win at the Kings & Queens of Corbet's in Jackson Hole, Wyo., as well as a gold medal at the Aspen X Games slopestyle event.
Reigning 2021 Dew Tour gold medalist, Alex Ferriera, will be returning to the halfpipe to claim his title on Saturday, Feb. 25th, along with several teammates who have been around the world competing in World Cups, most recently in Calgary, Canada and Mammoth Lakes, Calif.
On the snowboard front, Colorado locals Red Gerard and Taylor Gold are set to drop in. Gerard will compete in slopestyle and Gold in halfpipe. U.S. Snowboard Pro Team athlete Sonora Alba will be one of the halfpipe ladies to look out for during this event. Alba's first Dew Tour was back in 2020 which secured her a spot to the U.S. Burton Open and eventually landed her onto the U.S. Pro Snowboard Halfpipe team in 2021. In the 2022-23 season, the snowboarders have competed around the world, most recently in halfpipe and slopestyle contests in Laax, Switzerland, Aspen, Colo., Mammoth Mountain, Cali., and Calgary, Canada.
