Winners of the People’s Choice award for Kings & Queens of Corbet’s are in!

Storming out of Jackson, Wyoming, Veronica goes BIG in the mountains. Known for accomplishing her goal of being the first woman to land a backflip into Corbet’s Couloir, Veronica was crowned the 2020 Queen of Corbet’s.

US-born and NZ/Canada-schooled, Ben brings to the table a ski race background with a freestyle vision. His flat-out speed and ninja technique on some of Earth’s gnarliest faces has the ski world doing a serious double-take.

Veronica grabbed a previous Queens crown by being the first female to stomp a rowdy backflip into the couloir. In 2023, she up’d the ante with an attempt (and near landing) of a double-backflip.

Ben redefined the Richter scale with signature amplitude and style on his killer line for the lads, highlighted by whistle-clean finishes.

Be on the watch for these heavy hitters as their wins as the People’s Choice already secure them a bid at next year’s action.
