Colorado Re-Cap

Greetings from Colorado. I'm writing this from the Allen's house in Denver, a family I am residing with for the evening. Dew Tour went fantastic. I wish mother nature would have cooperated with my qualifying run, but aside from that, I had a great time. On the second kicker in the slopestyle course, I managed to hit a gust of wind and come up short of the landing. As you could predict, Dew Tour is always a zoo of people and athletes.

How it works is there are 60 competitors in the qualifying round divided into two heats. They take 5 skiers from each heat and then the 3 next best scores to pre-lims. I placed 6th in heat 2! Despite the near miss to pre-lims, I still managed to get some excellent training in and I learned a couple of new tricks. Since I qualified only one spot out, that puts me in a great position to get a wild card for the next two stops. I will be traveling to Killington and Snowbasin just in case I'm able to compete.

Here is a quick little edit I composed of a couple days of skiing at Keystone after qualifications.

 As of now, I'm flying back home tomorrow for Christmas. There are still many competitions to come this year! Keep tuned! 


  1. Hey Nick you skied GREAT and keep it up your going to be the next big thing at Dew Tour

  2. Nick,

    The video is sick! Great tricks at the end! Coming in 6th out of 30 sounds good to me. Hope you get the wildcard.

    Hey, we want to come see you in VT, but I can't find date information on the Dew Tour site. I click on tour info:

    but it doesn't show dates. When are you in Killington?
