U.S. Ski & Snowboard announced the return of the U.S. Revolution Tour (Rev Tour) for the 2023 season to three world-class resorts: Copper Mountain, Colo., Mammoth Mountain, Calif., and Aspen Snowmass, Colo.
The Rev Tour is an annual competition tour for up-and-coming freeskiers and snowboarders in halfpipe, slopestyle and big air.
For 19 years, the Rev Tour has served as a stepping stone for athletes transitioning from competing at the grassroots level to the elite level of freeskiing and snowboarding. At each stop of the Tour, some of the world’s most promising competitors have the opportunity to compete at professional-level venues and terrain parks.
To earn a spot on the Rev Tour, athletes must pre-qualify based on criteria for each contest. The Tour is focused on skiers and riders aged 13-19 years old and awards the top athletes with invitations to elite competitions, including the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix, FIS Junior World Championships and USASA Nationals, and Project Gold camps.
Competition formats vary based on location and event, but skiers and riders compete in open class unless otherwise specified. Athletes must be 13 years of age or older to be eligible to compete at the Rev Tours and athletes must hold a current U.S. Ski & Snowboard competitor membership and FIS license.
U.S. Ski & Snowboard also continues the Tour with the support of long-standing partnerships, including working with USASA and The Futures Tour, a joint venture between USASA and U.S. Ski & Snowboard. USASA provides an avenue for athletes to qualify for the Rev Tour, as well as solidify their prequalified spot for the 2023-24 season.
