Video: Steve Corbett First-Ever Quadruple Backflip On Skis
By Sam Petri | May 23rd, 2012
On April 13, 1974, at Whistler Mountain, Steve Corbett skied off a jump and traveled a distance of 170 feet, at a height of 80 feet, turning four revolutions in the air, landed and skied away. While Steve’s feat of being the first-ever skier to do a quadruple backflip has largely been lost in history due to the fact that Guinness World Records never recognized it, we now have this classic video to watch on YouTube. It’s hard to tell if he stomps it clean, but even if it was a backslap situation, you’ve got to respect the dude for really giving’er back in the day.
