(January 16, 2019), Teton Village, WY ––Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) is pleased to announce the athlete lineup for the most anticipated event of the season, Kings and Queens of Corbet’s.  Next month, JHMR will host 18 of the world’s top freeride skiers and snowboarders, pitting runs head-to-head in the famed Corbet’s Couloir with competitors vying for the title of King and Queen of Corbet’s.

Back by popular demand, after an impressive 2018 athlete turnout and performance, Kings and Queens of Corbet’s is sure to electrify the skiing and snowboard community.  The invitational event has filled up with the world’s top freeriders. “We’re excited to host Kings and Queens again this winter, as well as the caliber of athlete we have competing,” stated JHMR Events and Partnership Manager, Jess McMillian.  She went on to note, “We have reigning King and Queen from last year Karl Fostvedt and Caite Zelief along with accomplished athletes like Aaron Blunk, Hana Beaman, and Travis Rice; the bar has been raised, and we’re thrilled to see where they take the competition this year.”

Hosted like a surf competition, the contest will be held one day within a six day window to create optimal conditions.  The competition window is February 11-16, 2019.  JHMR will update the status of event each afternoon at and on JHMR’s social channels the day prior to the event.  Viewing of the event will take place below the Couloir, in Tensleep Bowl, and the competition is expected to start at 10am.  JHMR wants to remind spectators; there is no beginner or intermediate terrain from the spectator venue down to the bottom of the mountain.

Kings and Queens of Corbet’s is supported by GoPro, Smartwool, Gortex, Yeti and Red Bull bringing together some of the world’s best action sports networks, products and athletes to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.  Freeskier is hosting the official Kings and Queens after-party Saturday, February 16 at the Pink Garter Theatre, in downtown Jackson, where the winners of the competition will be crowned at 9:15 pm.
