Gatorade Winter Free Flow Tour Announced

g_freeflow_tour_mainBy: Press Release

Overview
In its inaugural winter season, the Gatorade Free Flow Tour is an amateur series that holds contests across the country throughout the month of January, including a total of 30 slopestyle (snowboard and freeski) competitions and 21 superpipe (snowboard and freeski) contests at 10 resorts. The first ever winter season of the Gatorade Free Flow Tour will showcase the top amateur winter athletes competing in snowboarding (slopestyle and superpipe) and freeskiing (slopestyle and superpipe). Snowboarding disciplines will have separate competitions for men and women, while the freeski contests will be open to both.

The winner in each of the 51 contests will be flown to the Gatorade Free Flow Tour Finals, taking place in conjunction with the Dew Tour’s Toyota Championship, Feb. 5-7, at Mount Snow Resort in Vermont, where one champion will be crowned in each of the six disciplines (men’s snowboard superpipe and slopestyle; women’s snowboard superpipe and slopestyle; freeski superpipe and slopestyle). Encompassing the “Flow to Pro” theme that is the cornerstone of the Gatorade Free Flow Tour, the two overall snowboard superpipe and slopestyle champions and the overall freeski superpipe and slopestyle champions earn a spot to compete against the pros at the first stop of the 2010-11 Winter Dew Tour the following season.
