"They narrowed it down from three stops to one this year. It is a pretty big deal," said Canadian Mike Riddle. "They are really pulling out all the stops."
They also added Ski and Snowboard Big Air as a discipline to the Dew Tour. Here, Gus Kenworthy lands a double cork 1620 for second place in the Ski Big Air finals.

The jumps link together really well -- theyre really smooth, really big. Big enough to do some sick tricks, says ski slopestyle competitor Nick Goepper.
