TETON VILLAGE, WY— The conditions could hardly be better for some of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders to compete for their Corbet’s throne.
More than 313 inches of snow have fallen on Jackson Hole Mountain Resort this season. Base depths at the upper mountain are up to 91 inches. And there’s more snow on the way. What’s it all mean? That the second annual Kings & Queens of Corbet’s competition is going to be all-time.
Last year’s king and queen, Karl Fostvedt and Caite Zeliff, will be defending their crowns this year—but they have some fierce competition. Local legend Travis Rice is in the mix this year. Competitors are traveling all the way from Canada and even Japan. X Games gold medalists, two-time Olympians and Freeride World Tour champions will all throw down on one of the biggest, most notorious in-bound runs in the world.
Corbet’s Couloir is known as the testing ground for generations of skiers and snowboarders. Kings and Queens of Corbet’s features top skiers and riders throwing down like never seen before. Watch the athletes dream big, crash hard and push the evolution of what’s possible in Corbet’s Couloir.
Corbet’s is officially closed to create the perfect conditions for the competition. JHMR could call it any day next week—and when they do, prepare for a day of skiing and snowboarding like you’ve never seen before.
Spectators can watch the event below Corbet’s in Tensleep Bowl. Reminder to spectators: there’s no beginner or intermediate terrain from the spectator venue to the base of the mountain. The spectator area will be stocked with Red Bull and plenty of stoke.
When it’s over, don’t miss the Freeskier after party at the Pink Garter on Saturday, February 16 featuring live music from The Pharcyde. Get your tickets here.
