—The Natural Selection Tour, a manifestation of snowboarders’ wildest dreams, with an innovative format designed to reveal riders’ full creative expression and deep knowledge of all-mountain conditions, returns in 2024 with two live head-to-head competition days and YETI Natural Selection DUELS.

The Tour also ups the ante this season with two all-new Canadian venues: one, a sport-progressing, naturally enhanced venue at Revelstoke Mountain Resort and a second in glorious, natural backcountry terrain within Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing’s tenure; and six new, global DUELS locations.

“Natural Selection is thrilled to return to Revelstoke. Last season the mountains, epic conditions and vibrant community delivered beyond our wildest imagination,” said Carter Westfall , Natural Selection Tour CEO. “Our goal is to double-down on Revelstoke with two new venues, two live event days and more ways to bring the global and local community together. Natural Selection’s goal has always been to connect people with Mother Nature by providing a platform where the most inspiring riders of our time can push the limits of the natural world.” The season kicks off with YETI Natural Selection DUELS showcasing inspiring natural terrain and diverse rider styles.

This year’s DUELS will stage in iconic mountain venues worldwide including: Andermatt+Sedrun+Disentis in Switzerland; Crested Butte Mountain Resort, CO; Eleven’s terrain on Scarp Ridge in Irwin, CO; RED Mountain Resort in Rossland, BC; Purgatory Snowcat Adventures in Durango, CO; and an undisclosed location in Japan. YETI Natural Selection DUELS are designed to bring out riders’ creativity, skill and fortitude, while highlighting new zones and ever changing conditions to show snowboarding’s diverse styles.

In DUELS, 12 challengers from across the global snowboarding spectrum will compete for the six remaining rider spots available in Revelstoke; two for women and four for men.

The final 12 riders, who make it through the first day of competition, will earn their spot to drop into the second venue for another day of live snowboarding.

The finals’ day will culminate in the crowning of the men’s and women’s 2024 Natural Selection champions. Known by riders as the heart of interior BC for its diverse terrain and legendary snowfall, the Revelstoke area is a natural fit for Natural Selection.

The Tour will also highlight and celebrate the authentic spirit of the Revelstoke mountain community with events supported by Tourism Revelstoke and the Province of British Columbia and hosted by Revelstoke Mountain Resort and Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing. 2024 Natural Selection
