build teams of two specialized athletes who will compete on Dew Tour’s
reimagined two-part slopestyle course

Section with one massive big air style jump where diversity will be rewarded as
athletes are scored based on their best two out of four jumps and the Jibs
Section, now featuring four separate jib setups, in which the best one out of
three runs will be judged. Results from both sections will be combined for one
total slopestyle score.
• Adaptive competition makes its debut at Dew Tour
with adaptive athletes slated to run on a banked slalom course on Springmeier
trail and compete for fastest times.
