TETON VILLAGE, Wyo.— Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) is pleased to announce an exciting lineup for the most anticipated competition of the season, Kings & Queens of Corbet’s. JHMR will host some of the world’s top freeride skiers and snowboarders, pitting runs head-to-head in the famed Corbet’s Couloir with competitors vying for the title of King or Queen of Corbet’s.
This year the event has been modified to limit the production and number of people involved, and viewing will be limited on-site in Tensleep Bowl. Kings & Queen’s popularity will be met with a more scaled, manageable and intimate experience with adherence to strict policies and procedures aligned with COVID-19 protocols. The event will be broadcasted on Red Bull TV on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021 at 10 am MST and winners will be announced at that time.
Held in a similar format to many surf competitions, Kings & Queens of Corbet’s will be held within a weather window where the contest day will be chosen when the conditions are optimal for the event and athletes. This year’s competition window is February 16-21, 2021.
JHMR will update the status of the event each afternoon during the competition window on their website here and on JHMR’s social channels the day prior to the event. Viewing of the event will take place below Corbet’s Couloir, in Tensleep Bowl, and the competition is expected to start at 10 am. JHMR wants to remind spectators; there is no beginner or intermediate terrain from the spectator venue down to the bottom of the mountain. All spectators will be asked to comply with all of JHMR’s COVID-19 protocols.
Kings and Queens of Corbet’s is supported by GoPro, Smartwool, Gore-Tex, Yeti, Sweet Protection and Red Bull, bringing together some of the world’s best action sports networks, products and athletes to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
