Find Breckenridge Condos Now for 2012 Mountain Dew Tour

The new and improved 2012 Mountain Dew Tour could bring record numbers of competitors and guests to Breckenridge condominiums and homes and other Summit County real estate.  The Town of Breckenridge agreed to pay almost $100,000 for lodging expenses–mostly to book condominiums in Breckenridge – for Dew Tour staff and competitors.

Avid sportsman and competitors who are considering purchasing Breckenridge Colorado real estate for this and other events and leisure activities yet have time to take advantage of low interest rates and a healthy selection of available properties in Summit County.

The Dew Tour stops in Breckenridge December 13-16, 2012.  The five-day event showcases the competitors on international broadcasts even as it shows off the variable terrain, back bowls, and terrain parks at the top-notch Colorado ski resort.

This is the fifth consecutive year that Breckenridge Ski Resort won a bid for the tour.  It is watched from living rooms and on iPhones around the world.  An article in the Summit Daily News (04/16/2012) by Catherine Corazzelli explains a press release from Alli Sports of the NBC Sports Group.  As the action-sports community evolves and athletes continue to desire more challenges, the demanding platform calls for “fewer, bigger, better events.”

Over the last six months, advocates of the Dew Tour gathered input from the athletes to drive and shape future events.  Organizers held panels with athletes, agents, and industry veterans to determine the best way to progress the various sports and how to elevate the sports’ competitions.

A new model developed.  “Action sports in three large-scale, premium and grand-slam style events” will be on the program this year.  Each of three stops includes expanded and new sports and disciplines.  In addition, there will be enhanced on-site experiences including more live music.

Offering athletes and spectators a full summer/winter schedule, the 2012 schedule includes three five-day festivals at beach, city and mountain venues. The events draw on the individual identities of the host cities for unique outcomes.Besides Breckenridge, competitions will be held in Ocean City, Maryland the week of August 16-19 and in San Francisco, California October 18-21.

According to the press release, the three premium events will also benefit from expanded television programming and digital strategy across several networks in addition to hyper-local promotional and programming opportunities through NBC Sports groups owned stations and regional sports networks. The coverage will include “behind-the-scenes exclusive content across multiple platforms.”

Breckenridge struck a win-win proposal as it landed the Dew Tour to invigorate the ski season the weekend before the December school holidays.  Several stakeholders collaborated for the winning bid including the Breckenridge Town Council, lodging properties, other town organizations, and Breckenridge Ski Resort.  The press release announced a four-year renewed partnership between Mountain Dew and Alli Sports.
