Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) announced today that two-time champion and reigning king Karl Fostvedt and reigning queen Madison Blackley will highlight a star-studded roster of 24 skiers and snowboarders set to compete in the annual Kings & Queens of Corbet’s ski and snowboard invitational on Feb. 12-18. The event will be streamed live for free and in its entirety on Red Bull TV and jacksonhole.com.

The Kings & Queens of Corbet’s competition debuted in 2018 and has consistently brought some of the world’s most daring skiers and snowboarders to the resort’s famous Corbet’s Couloir, landing tricks such as double backflips, nose butters, and huge methods to the delight of a socially distanced crowd below in Tensleep Bowl.
