WATERVILLE VALLEY, NH (Jan. 9, 2017) – The 2017 Toyota U.S. Revolution Tour heads to the East Coast this week, making its second stop at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. At the second of four stops on the tour, Waterville Valley will play host to two separate slopestyle competitions for both snowboard and freeski athletes.

WATERVILLE VALLEY HIGHLIGHTS

Some of the world’s best junior athletes will compete at the Toyota U.S. Revolution Tour on the sculpted jumps and jibs of Waterville Valley’s Exhibition Terrain Park, the resort’s premier, large park with a dedicated Poma lift.

A breeding ground for elite freestyle athletes, the Waterville Valley Academy has produced world-class athletes such as U.S. Snowboard Pro Slopestyle Team member Chas Guldemond.

Known as “New Hampshire’s Family Resort,” Waterville Valley features 265 skiable acres with an altitude of 4,004 feet and vertical drop of 2,020 feet, 60 trails and 11 lifts. 

TOYOTA REVOLUTION TOUR HIGHLIGHTS 

The Rev Tour offers up-and-coming athletes the chance to break into the professional ranks. Skiers earn points on the AFP tour, snowboarders earn points on the WST tour and both earn important FIS points. The Rev Tour also offers an overall prize purse of $67,000.

The Toyota U.S. Revolution Tour is a much-needed stepping stone between grassroots amateur events and elite-level professional events. American Olympians such as Sage Kotsenburg, Maddie Bowman and Kaitlyn Farrington all furthered their competitive careers with success on the Rev Tour.
