Wolf Creek Ski Area To Open this Weekend

Who cares if it’s October, Wolf Creek Ski Resort just announced that their lifts will be spinning this weekend. By opening on October 13th, they’ll be the first Colorado resort to open for the 2018/2019 season. The recent early season snow storm brought a much-needed reprieve to the drought-stricken Southwest Colorado mountains. In total, the ski resort received 20 inches, providing enough of a base to be open for weekend guests. The resort isn’t in full operations mode, only the Treasure Stoke, Bonanza, and Nova lifts will be running. But for those who are itching to sneak in some early turns, a road trip down to the San Juans might be in your future.

Just when you thought Karl Fostvedt couldn't get any crazier, he decided to hit Corbet's SWITCH. Yeah, and he stomped it. But was it enough to maintain his reign as king of Corbet's? Tough to tell considering the equally impressive runs from Travis Rice and Blaine Gallivan. For now, we'll wait in suspense until the winners are announced this Saturday.

Travis Rice’s run at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s 2019 might have been some of the finest snowboarding we’ve ever seen, but the real hero was no doubt Trevor Kennison, who chucked it off the lip aboard his sit-ski. Kennison suffered a life-changing snowboarding injury in 2014 when he crashed on a jump in the backcountry of Vail Pass, Colorado, landing on his back. He has worked with the High Fives Foundation ever since, and competed in the ski race events with dreams of entering the 2022

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

Teton Brown’s Double Backflip Attempt into Corbet’s

If first you don’t succeed at a double backflip into Corbet’s, try, try again. Despite exploding from his first attempt, Tristan “Teton” Brown went for it again. The effort and commitment were there, unfortunately, the landing was not. Haunted from being unable to stomp either attempt at the trick last year, the double backie remains to be Brown's greatest arch-nemesis.
