Fired up for the baddest ass competition in all of inbound ski resort competitions…Kings & Queens of Corbet’s.
The format is simple: Huck your guts off of Jackson Hole’s legendary Corbet’s Couloir, hope you land on your feet, try not to get bucked while making the most of both the natural and manmade features on the runout, wait for coronation.
Let’s hope the streaming platform at Red Bull can handle the traffic and they don’t end up regretting just using Youtube Live which is much more stable. Fingers crossed.
Competition Update: Competition confirmed for today, 2/11/20. Athletes are listed in run order below.
The Kings & Queens invitational event pits 24 of the world’s top skiers, riders and select local rippers against each other. As they compete for the title, “King or Queen of Corbet’s,” each competitor is granted two runs down Corbet’s with only the best run counting toward the grand prize.
The competition is expected to start at 10 a.m. Spectators can watch from below Corbet’s Couloir, in Tensleep Bowl, or you can check out a livestream of the event on jacksonhole.com and Red Bull TV. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) will update the status of the event each afternoon during the competition window here and on JHMR’s social channels.
This one-day competition (within a week-long weather window from February 10-15, 2020) includes closing Corbet’s to create optimal conditions. JHMR wants to remind spectators that there’s no beginner or intermediate terrain from the spectator venue down to the bottom of the mountain.
Kings & Queens of Corbet’s brings together some of the world’s best action sports networks, brands and athletes and is sponsored by GoPro, Smartwool, GORE-TEX, YETI, Sweet Protection and Red Bull.
