Karl Fostvedt and Madison Blackley Are the New King and Queen of Corbets!

Last Thursday was a day for the history books, with yet another edition of Kings and Queens of Corbet’s going down at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The venue? None other than Corbet’s Couloir right under the top of Big Red. The athletes? 26 heavy-hitting skiers and snowboarders hungry for the title and ready to absolutely throw down. Lucky for them, the Tetons have been going through one of the most epic storm cycles in history, transforming Corbet’s into the ultimate playground for
