Jackson Hole Mountain Resort (JHMR) is pleased to announce the fourth successful Kings & Queens has been completed and two athletes are now crowned the King & Queen of Corbet's. Last Thursday, February 18, 2021, 26 athletes from around the world threw down into the iconic couloir like never before. Tricks landed such as double backflips, nose butters, huge methods and an insane wall ride were all displayed for a socially distanced crowd below in Tensleep Bowl. Viewers worldwide are now able to watch the competition for free and in its entirety via Red Bull TV, jacksonhole.com and the video broadcast below…
In the end, the athletes judged the competition and two runs stood out for the win. Karl Fostvedt and Madison Blackley took home the first place, title and cash to win the event in the men's and women's divisions. Second place was Hans Mindnich for the men and Audrey Herbert for the women. In third place Jake Hopfinger and Zoe Vernon took the podium. Competition was stiff this year and rounding out fourth and fifth place for men were Parkin Costain and Elias Elhardt respectively. JHMR is pleased to announce that all the winning athletes male and female will receive equal cash compensation. That prize money is $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $3,000 for third place.
"The event was incredible. The athletes took skiing and riding to a whole new level this year," stated JHMR Senior Events and Partnership Manager Jess McMillan. "We had a challenging weather window (it just keeps snowing!), not to mention pulling an event off like this in times of COVID. It’s a true testament to the dedicated staff, athletes and partners to execute such an amazing competition this winter. We are so grateful," McMillan added.
Jackson Hole Mountain Resort would like to thank all the mountain operations staff and sponsors who helped support the event. Kings & Queens of Corbet's is supported by Red Bull, Goretex, Smartwool, Yeti, Sweet Protection and GoPro bringing together some of the world's best action sports networks, products and athletes.
