COPPER MOUNTAIN, CO (Nov. 22, 2016) – The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and Copper Mountain Resort announced today that, due to unseasonably warm temperatures and delays in halfpipe construction, the Revolution Tour events scheduled to begin on Dec. 5 will now begin on Dec. 7. The event will be condensed to included one halfpipe competition for freeskiing and one for snowboarding.
“As a Rev Tour and U.S. Grand Prix host, Copper goes above and beyond to prepare their Main Vein Superpipe and ensure a successful competition for the athletes,” said USSA Director of Events Eric Webster. “Weather has been a challenge for many resorts this season but, with new snowfall and favorable future forecasts, Copper will be ready for the athletes to kick off their competition season at the Rev Tour.”
“Mother Nature hasn’t been easy on us but the forecast is shifting in a direction that is conducive for both natural and man-made snow,” said Stephanie Sweeney, communications manager for Copper Mountain Resort. “Thanks to the continued dedication and hard work from both Copper and USSA, the Main Vein Superpipe will uphold its reputation as one of the top venues in North America while the Rev Tour remains a top competition for these up-and-coming athletes.”
