Snowy weather in Breckenridge didn’t stop competitors from bringing the heat on day two of the 2016 Dew Tour ski and snowboard competition, presented by Mountain Dew and TEN: The Enthusiast Network at Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado. It was non-stop action as world-class skiers and snowboarders took to Dew Tour’s reimagined Slopestyle Jib section hoping to be named overall slopestyle champions.

The Slopestyle Jib section featured four jib sections, complete with a mix of rails, boxes and an up rail, gap to fence jib Toyota feature, enabling competitors to showcase their creativity and style. Athletes had three runs, with the best run score counting towards their cumulative total. In the new two-part format, the jib section scores are added to the jump section scores to determine an overall slopestyle winner.

Swedish skier Henrik Harlaut kept his momentum with his top scoring day in the jump section and first ever double cork bio 1260 in competition, securing his first Dew Tour slopestyle podium in four years. With his second jibs run score of 81.33 making his total 162.65 and enough for the win, Harlaut happily took a victory lap on his final run.

Fourteen-year-old Estonian ripper Kelly Sildaru came back this year with a vengeance to secure back-to-back Dew Tour Ski Slopestyle Titles. After yesterday’s historical performance with back-to-back 900’s in the jump section, Sildaru secured her title in the jib section with 73.00 points, making her total 159.33, a full six points higher than the rest of the group. Sildaru also took a victory lap on her final run, while still stomping a switch 450 and 270 on, 270 off, solidifying her win.

Under the lights off of Main Street in Downtown Breckenridge, male skiers and snowboarders put on a show for a massive crowd during the streetstyle competition. The progressive setup was perfected by Snow Park Technologies, Keystone A51 and Breckenridge Ski Resort park crews. Twenty three-year-old skier Alex Bellemare (CAN) took top place honors in the overall category, while best trick went to Tim McChesney (USA) with his lipslide 270 on to front swap transfer, 270 out on the lift tower tube to down rail.
