16th Annual Rev Tour Schedule Announced
The U.S. Revolution Tour will continue its tradition of serving as a critical stepping stone for freeski and snowboard halfpipe, slopestyle, and big air athletes during the 2019-20 season. The Rev Tour will host three tour stops at Copper Mountain, Colo, Mammoth Mountain, Calif., and Woodward Park City, Utah.
This season will kick off with new upgrades to the grassroots level including the launch of The Futures Tour in partnership with USASA to serve as the sole event entry point for both freeskiing and snowboarding events, as well as new sanctioning for the Rev Tour itself. In 2015, the Rev Tour introduced big air competition ahead of the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, where snowboarding big air made its Olympic debut. Four years later, organizers are proud to announce that both snowboard and freeski big air will be sanctioned as FIS Nor-Am events for the first time making FIS points available in all Rev Tour competitions.
“The Rev Tour is an integral piece to the competitive freeski and snowboard pipeline and has always served as a launchpad for athletes by providing world-class venues to showcase their skills,” said U.S. Ski & Snowboard Event Manager Sarah Welliver. “We are excited to add value to the tour this season by providing stand-alone big air competitions for freeskiers and snowboarders giving them the opportunity to grab valuable Nor-Am points.”
In addition to the increased sanctioning to Rev Tour competition, the inclusion of Woodward Park City signifies the continued dedication to working with likeminded partners that share the values of fun, safety, and progression. Woodward Park City’s Mountain Park will offer a network of terrain feature zones that offer a fully balanced variety of on-mountain experiences – from Start Parks to Peace Park. Woodward Mountain Parks start with base area learning zones and gradually progress in size and difficulty culminating in best-in-class terrain parks and elite athlete training facilities. The Rev Tour’s association with the best terrain parks and progression based facilities, like Woodward and Mammoth Mountain’s Unbound Terrain Park, introduces athletes to professional level facilities at a young age and sets them up for the transition to the highest level of competition.
The Rev Tour is focussed on athletes 13-19 years of age and awards top athletes an invite to compete in the U.S. Grand Prix, Junior Worlds, USASA Nationals, and participate in Project Gold camps. Young skiers and riders looking to participate in the 2019-20 Rev Tour must be pre-qualified through the published event criteria. See below for more information.
Athletes under the age of 13 are not eligible to compete. Athletes must hold a current U.S. Ski & Snowboard competitor membership and FIS license.
