It’s Snowmageddon in California. Following the state's recent four day megastorm, resorts across the state are reporting between 4-11 FEET of fresh pow. The storm was extra gracious to the Eastern Sierra, which dumped over 130 inches of new snow at Mammoth Mountain and June Mountain. But that's not saying that things up North are shabby—it’s quite the opposite. Both North and South Lake Tahoe resorts scored big time with about 50-90 inches of snowfall.
Here’s the official breakdown of what each resort got:
Mammoth Mountain: 132″
June Mountain 130”+
Squaw Valley: 84”
Homewood Ski Area: 82”
Alpine Meadows: 73″
Mt Rose: 55″
Soda Springs: 50″
Sending Corbet's is a maneuver which requires a lot of confidence and perhaps a little bit of insanity. Nuking into Corbet's on a sit-ski, on the other hand, is a whole different level. Watch Trevor Kennison launch himself in one of the most impressive videos to come out of Kings and Queens today.

Of course, Travis Rice was going to put on a show at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s—Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is his backyard after all.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to go full send into Corbet’s, here’s your chance. Rice just dropped the POV from his first run and it’s insane. RELATED: Watch the 2019 Kings
