Parkin Costain and Veronica Paulsen Are The 2020 King and Queen of Corbet’s!

This week, we witnessed history being made yet again in the freeride ski and snowboard world, with another edition of Jackson Hole's Kings and Queens of Corbet's going down. After a record-breaking amount of snowfall hit the Tetons this January, 24 of the best men and women in snowsports sent themselves off the lip of the infamous ski run.

Kings and Queens of Corbet's is an athlete-judged competition, so it's really all about stoking out your friends instead of checking boxes on judge's checklist. For the competitors, progression is the name of the game, and progression is most certainly what we saw this year. 

This year, the 2020 King and Queen of Corbet's are Parkin Costain and Veronica Paulsen. Costain wowed his peers with a perfectly stomped double backflip off the lip followed by a steezy collection of other tricks down low. Paulsen became the first female to stomp a backflip into the couloir, which fired up her fellow riders after trying it three years running. 

Men's Podium:

Parkin Costain

Hans Mindnich

Sam Kuch

Women's Podium:

Veronica Paulsen

Arianna Tricomi

Caite Zeliff

Congratulations to these senders and everyone who competed!

Peep These Hidden Gems in Whistler

We all hear legends of the Whistler backcountry. Endless cold smoke pow, bluebird days, big lines, epic trees, you name it. Just like any good ski spot, Whistler has its secret stashes that only a select few get to ski every year. This spot in the Callaghan Valley meets all those criteria for the perfect backcountry cache. In their new film, Head Freeskiing shows all the glory of the old growth forest surrounding the Journeyman Lodge. Skiers Riley Leboe and Ian Morrison call Whistler home and

I think we can all agree that Nick McNutt is one of the most fun skiers to watch in the world. Whether it’s dropping unfathomably tall pillow stacks, spinning off cliffs, or landing backwards in pow on his Atomic Bent Chetler 120s, he makes it all look easy. It’s probably the years of experience he’s gained in the type of terrain that encourages that kind of skiing, or maybe it’s some sort of god-given talent. But either way, we’re always fired up for McNutt to be a part of our team. This

Bobby Brown reminds us once again that he's a master of all ski disciplines. One week, he’s hucking features in the backcountry, the next, he’s showing us his skills in the park. This top-to-bottom park edit of Bobby has us googly-eyed over his hand drags and 540’s. Seems like a bluebird day riding rails at Breckenridge is just what the doctor ordered for those early season blues, and Bobby Brown is serving it up.
