You've got to have some grit to be the Queen of Corbets. Take it from Veronica Paulsen, who spent three years trying to land a backflip in the 45-degree chute for JHMR's Kings and Queen's of Corbet's competition. When she finally stuck the landing last year and won the grand prize, it was life-changing. Paulsen broke boundaries for women’s skiing and catapulted herself into the limelight. However, that day wasn’t just a stroke of luck, but rather the culmination of many backslaps, poor landings, and a fair share of bruises. Thankfully, Paulsen kept picking herself up to try again. Given this relentless determination, it’s clear that winning the Kings and Queen’s of Corbet’s competition is only the beginning for Paulsen, and we can't wait to see what's next.
We all hear legends of the Whistler backcountry. Endless cold smoke pow, bluebird days, big lines, epic trees, you name it.

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
