It’s almost that electrifying time of year when two dozen of the world’s finest skiers and snowboarders face off in an aerial battle taking place at world-renowned ski resort, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, in the infamous ‘Corbets Couloir’ for the annual Kings and Queens of Corbet’s Competition. The world-class display of aerial talent and big trick stomping wizardry is to take place from February 10-15 at JHMR, conditions allowing.

The competition first premiered at Jackson Hole two seasons ago and has already grown to be one of the biggest, best, and most exciting ski and snowboard competitions the world has to offer. This year’s lineup is nothing short of spectacular either, featuring twenty-four of the planet’s best skiers and snowboarders sending it off one of Jackson Hole’s most gnarly drops — Corbet’s Couloir.

 “We’re excited for Kings and Queens 2020 and the athlete line up this year is world class,” said JHMR Events and Partnership Manager, Jess McMillan in a press release.  She added, “We have competing two-time Olympian Jessika Jenson, X Games medalist Hana Beaman, and film stars Tim Durtschi, Karl Fostvedt and Sam Kuch to name a few along with an incredibly talented field from around the globe filling out the roster.”

The event is expected to begin on Friday, February 10 at 10 am, weather permitting. Spectators can view the competition from below Corbet’s Couloir in Tensleep Bowl, however, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort reminds those attending the event that there will be no beginner or intermediate terrain accessible from the viewing area down to the bottom of the resort. If you want to see this gnarly display of winter acrobatics, you have to be gnarly enough to get there. For those not able to attend the event in person, a livestream will be available on Jacksonhole.com and Red Bull TV.
