Killington Wins a Date with Winter Dew Tour

Killington Wins a Date with Winter Dew Tour

A 22-foot superpipe helped this Vermont resort win the bid.

Killington New Dew Tour Stop

The Winter Dew Tour announced its 2010-11 dates and venues this week, and the Beast of the East has won the right to host the east coast stop on the three-year-old circuit, which showcases top skiers and snowboarders in slopestyle and halfpipe events and is televised live on NBC.

The reason for the switch: Killington’s 22-foot halfpipe, which former east coast Dew host Mount Snow, Vt., lacks. These so-called superpipes are preferred by the top skiers, who now have Olympic ambitions, pending the International Olympic Committee’s decision on whether to include ski halfpipe at the 2014 Winter Games. An announcement is expected by early November; the FIS International Congress has endorsed the addition.

The three-stop Dew Tour starts in Breckenridge, Colo., Dec. 16-19, hits Killington Jan. 20-23, 2011, then crowns its champions at Snowbasin, Utah, Feb. 10-13, 2011. Breckenridge is now the only venue with the old-style 18-foot halfpipe.
