The 2011-12 Winter Dew Tour kicks off this weekend in Breckenridge, Colorado as the first of three venues this season. The Winter Dew Tour features snowboarding halfpipe and slopestyle and freestyle skiing halfpipe and slopestyle. The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi will feature all four of these events. The Winter Dew Tour brings most of the top athletes from around the world to one event, which happens rarely outside of the X Games. Canadian podium hopefuls for 2014 who compete on the Winter Dew Tour include Kaya Turski (ski slopestyle), Justin Dorey (ski halfpipe), Sarah Burke (ski halfpipe), Roz Groenewoud (ski halfpipe), Sebastien Toutant (snowboard slopestyle) and Mark McMorris (snowboard slopestyle). NBC and Rogers Sportsnet will show coverage of the Winter Dew Tour in Canada.
