JACKSON, Wyo. — After a serious throw down on Tuesday and a much-anticipated announcement, the votes are in, and this year’s King and Queen of Corbet’s have been crowned. This peer-judged event was evaluated by the competitors during a film review on Friday evening. Scores were based on speed and degree of difficulty, innovation, and controlled and completed landings.
In the women’s division, Veronica Paulsen and her iconic backflip snagged first place, while Arianna Tricomi took second, followed closely by reigning queen Caite Zeliff.
In the men’s division, Parker Costain, who also had an amazing run with a double backflip, was crowned king, followed by Hans Mindnich and Sam Kuch.
