2012 Dew Tour – Bigger and Better for Breck
December 13 – 16, 2012
Alli Sports, together with Mountain Dew, who has been the winter tour title partner since its inception, is reshaping the Dew Tour to showcase action sports in three large-scale, premium and ‘grand-slam’ style events – with its one mountain stop bringing the excitement and action from the world’s top athletes to Peak 8 this December.
Leveraging the resources of the NBC Sports Group, the new “Beach, City, Mountain” tour model will better serve the needs of the athletes and action sports community. At the event level, each stop will include expanded and new sports and disciplines, and an enhanced on-site experience featuring more live music and a new “Dew Tour Experience,” bringing all aspects of action sports culture to life throughout the five-day festivals.
The 2012 Dew Tour will include over 30 hours of live television coverage on NBC and NBC Sports Network. In addition, the Dew Tour will present an expanded digital offering including live competitions and behind-the-scenes exclusive content across multiple platforms. In addition, all broadcast hours will be distributed live internationally across Alli’s extensive network of distribution partners.

Bring the Viking horns! Ullr Fest set for Jan. 6 – Jan. 12, 2013
Breck locals like to think our consistent, annual snowfall is a reward for the annual party we throw just for the god of snow himself. Ullr Fest, the annual week-long celebration of Ullr (pronounced Ooh-ler
), the mythical Norse god of snow, brings the raucous Breckenridge Main Street parade, live entertainment and bar series, the Ullr Dating Game, a Nordic party, Ullympics and a family ice skating party to Breckenridge. This is an event like no other, and is worth experiencing in person!
