18 12 2017

Monster Energy’s Henrik Harlaut Wins Ski Slopestyle at the Dew Tour 2017 I’ve never done a trick like that in a contest, and I’ve only ever done it twice, so it feels really, really, good!

I’m just grateful to have put a run down - Jamie Anderson BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. December 17, 2017 Monster Energy’s Max Parrot wins his first Dew Tour title scoring a 97.00 on his second run. Teammate Jamie Anderson takes second and secures spot on the U.S. Olympic team. Parrot(CAN) has been competing at the Dew Tour for many years and is no stranger to the podium, but winning his first Dew Tour title was significant even though he already pre-qualified to represent the Canadian Olympic Team. “I’ve been competing at the Dew Tour for seven years, and while I’ve got second and third, getting that first place spot has always been on my checklist,” said Parrot. After scrubbing his first run washing out on the last jump, as per usual the mild mannered Canadian made no waves as he casually dropped in to the highly technical course...

December 17, 2017 Monster Energy sends big props to Chloe Kim as she made quick work of the halfpipe at the Dew Tour on Friday. With another convincing win, the 17-year-old snowboard phenom continued her dominance of the sport with a showing that seemed unfair at times for the other competitors. Just a week after taking first place at the Grand Prix at Copper Mountain (the second U.S. Olympic qualifier), this win scored Kim enough to qualify for a spot on the US Olympic Snowboard Halfpipe team. Despite the fact that Mother Nature has been late to show this winter in Colorado, a fresh six-inches fell over the past few days giving the Rockies a much needed blanket of white as competition for the Dew Tour kicked off in Breckenridge late Friday afternoon....
