New York - Nov. 14, 2013 - The Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships returns to Breckenridge, Colo., December 12-15, featuring the world's top freeski athletes, including Torin Yater-Wallace, Bobby Brown, David Wise and Simon Dumont competing in superpipe and slopestyle competitions. The event will serve as the first official US Ski and Snowboard Association Olympic team selection event of the 2013-2014 season, and the first ever USSA selection event for freeski slopestyle and freeski superpipe disciplines. The iON Mountain Championships will bring together the country's top male and female pro superpipe and slopestyle athletes, along with an array of international talent looking to capture the Dew Cup.

Showcasing their skills in men's and women's freeski superpipe will be top contenders Torin Yater-Wallace, David Wise, Simon Dumont, Maddie Bowman, Devin Logan and Jen Hudak. The slopestyle contest will feature heavy hitters including Breckenridge native Bobby Brown, Nick Goepper, Tom Wallisch and Gus Kenworthy, all hungry for valuable USSA selection points. Logan will be pulling double duty at the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships, as she will also be competing in the slopestyle contest against top contenders including Keri Herman and Grete Eliasson.

"I couldn't be more excited that the Dew Tour is the first USSA selection event this December," said Yater-Wallace. "The event always brings out the best competition, so it will be the perfect way for freeskiers to make our statement as we prepare for our first Games in Sochi."
