Revolution Tour Heads East

Waterville Valley, NH – The 2017 Toyota U.S. Revolution Tour heads to the East Coast this week at Waterville Valley. 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.

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.

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.
