Moving west from New Hampshire to follow his dreams, Guldemond struck gold since moving to California, winning a Winter Dew Tour stop, the US Open and the Nippon Open in the last two years alone. One of the riders taking big rotations to the next level, Chas is unstoppable in all types of terrain.

Breckenridge, Colo. – December 16, 2012 – The Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships closed out today with Mark McMorris winning his second Dew Cup of the weekend at the Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle Finals. McMorris secured the win with his second run, toughing it out through the weather to gain a score of 95.00. He began with a frontside lipslide to fakie on the first rail feature, followed by a hardway cab 270 gap to the kinked rail. He pulled a cab 900 double cork and frontside 720 on the first set of jumps, and a backside 270 over the rainbow box. McMorris closed out his run with a double wildcat and a huge backside 1260 double cork on the same jump where he won last night’s Big Air contest.
“It feels awesome,” said McMorris on his Dew Tour success. “I just can’t believe everything worked out the way it did. I just rode the way I needed to and everything aligned. The level of riding was insane. I’m just so happy.”

Between the TTR, FIS, Dew Tour and Winter X Games, there have been 27 major snowboard contests scheduled between December 2010 and March 2011 at venues all across the world. Each organization schedules its event series without taking into account the event schedule set by other organizations, which results in a contest calendar that is not only crowded, but where major competitions conflict with each other. Scheduling conflicts force riders to choose between events, which not only divides the competitive field, it devalues the viewing experience for fans who watch competitions where not all the top riders are participating.
