Rev Tour riders, freestyle on Dollar next week

Starts Tuesday, March 4


     After events in Seven Springs, Pa. and at Mammoth Mountain, Ca., the 2014 Pop-Tarts U.S. Revolution Tour pulls into its last stop next week at Sun Valley Resort.

     Sun Valley’s Dollar Mountain will host men’s and women’s halfpipe and slopestyle competitions for both freeskiing and snowboarding from Tuesday, March 4 through Friday, March 7.

     Dollar Mountain has Olympic-sized jumps and over 73 terrain park features, according to a press release from the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).

     In addition to individual competition winners, overall champions will be crowned at the conclusion of this season’s final Rev Tour stop. Sun Valley has a long tradition of freestyle skiing because the Idaho resort helped give birth to freestyle in the 1970s.

     Sun Valley Resort Director of Marketing Jack Sibbach said, “We’re excited to host the Rev Tour for the second consecutive year and watch this sport’s promising young athletes perform at a world-class venue.”

     The first event will be halfpipe snowboarding Tuesday, March 4. Slopestyle snowboarding is Wednesday, followed by halfpipe skiing Thursday, March 6 and slopestyle skiing on Friday.
