We're excited to welcome back the Dew Tour Am Series, North America’s premier amateur ski and snowboard competition, to Sun Peaks Resort! The two-day competition will feature a brand new big air competition as well as the signature slopestyle event. With a cash purse of $30,000 the top amateur athletes on the continent will be throwing down their best tricks in the Sun Peaks terrain park.
We’re incredibly excited to be back at Sun Peaks especially with the addition of the big air competition. Canada is stacked with amateur ski and snowboard talent and we’re proud to be able to give them the tools they need to elevate their performance. With $30,000 in prize money to be won, the Dew Tour Am Series is truly one of the top amateur events in the country." – Neetu Godara, Marketing Director for Mountain Dew Canada
