King and Queen of Corbets contest is on @jacksonhole today sponsored by @redbull and @gopro . I will be covering it live here in about 30 minutes… let er’ buck, Chuck. This is going to be entertaining/ for those who don’t know, Corbet’s Couloir is a rather infamous terrain feature off the top of Rendezvous Peak, where the Tram here arrives from the valley floor. A chute with a mandatory cliff entrance has always been a staple here and has to be one of the most well known runs in North America..
So Jackson Hole Mountain Resort held a rather progressive contest this week at the famed Corbet’s Couloir. Brave athletes hucked themselves into the infamous chute yesterday off Rendezvous Peak during the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s contest. The hucks were huge and sticking landings was mostly optional. There wasn’t much in the way of a proper video recap released so we scoured social media and here are a few of the best sends we found.
The first is a laid out front flip from Jeff Leger, aka Dr. Huckinstuff.
Another view of the good Dr’s huck:
Here’s Sander Hadley with an off axis dub that was seriously ridiculous (we love the celebratory three at the bottom, too):
Sometimes you get too excited and punch it too deep! Definitely hit my head 🙃🤯but had to keep ‘er moving! My first run was a very loose dub backslap to right 3 backslap. Toned ‘er down second run for a left 3 off the top to right 3 then a rock ride. Insane day yesterday for the @jacksonhole Kings and Queens of Corbets. The boys all threw down. @dahrkgram with the savage 7, @blzablaine with the butter 7 and @crazy_karl with the 7 stomp! #helmetsarecool Big thanks to @jmcmillan and her husband @ericseymour for such an awesome event!!! 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Shots by @tetongravity @adambagelboy (sick tunes Adam!) and myself @uaoutdoor @j_skis @scottfreeski #UAOutdoors #jfriendski #scottathlete
