Changes to the Tour

The first Winter Dew Tour, a spin-off focusing on winter sports, was held in late 2008–early 2009 with events in snowboarding and freestyle skiing. The tour made stops at the Breckenridge Ski Resort, Mount Snow, Northstar California. During the 2010–2011 season, the tour returned to Breckenridge, but moved its Vermont stop from Mount Snow to the Killington Ski Resort, and the Tahoe event to Snowbasin in Ogden, Utah.


In May 2013, the United States Ski and Snowboard Association reached an agreement with Alli to allow the Winter Dew Tour event in Breckenridge to serve as a qualifying event for the 2014 Winter Olympics team. The arrangement gave the USSA control over certain aspects of the event, such as its format, and selling advertising to its own official sponsors during the telecast, and to promote its own Grand Prix series.


In 2015, citing declining television viewership, NBC Sports sold the Dew Tour to TEN: The Enthusiast Network, owner of magazines such as Transworld Skateboarding and Transworld Snowboarding. Under its ownership, major changes were made for the 2016 season; the Dew Tour was further reduced to two events, with a single summer skateboarding meet, and a winter ski and snowboard meet, in Long Beach and Breckenridge respectively.


In 2019, TEN's (The Enthusiast Network) adventure sports portfolio was sold to American Media, LLC. In June 2019, the event once again traveled to Long Beach, California, completing a successful skateboarding street and park event that served as the first-ever US-based Olympic Skateboarding qualification stop. The tour continued with a new venue location for Winter in February 2020, moving to Copper Mountain, Colorado, as well as an additional skateboarding stop in May 2021 (shifted from the previous year due to COVID-19) that served as the final US-based Olympic Skateboarding qualifier going into the 2020 Summer Olympics where skateboarding made its Olympic debut.
