Jackson Hole’s rowdiest ski competition, Kings and Queens of Corbet’s, is set to take place this week and the FREESKIER crew will be on-site to cover the madness as it unfolds. The second running of the peer-judged competition will see 25 of the best skiers and riders throw their meat into the famed Corbet’s Couloir for a shot at ultimate bragging rightsand a hefty cash purse. The weather window is officially open, which means the contest can happen any day this week.
Once the competition is said-and-done, we’ll be ushering in some hip hop royalty to town for the Official Awards Party on Saturday, February 16, at the Pink Garter Theatre. If you’re around, join us for a night you wont soon forget as we crown the official 2019 King and Queen of Corbets and party the night away with music by legendary rap group The Pharcyde. Get your tickets here.

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.
