TGR Athletes Send It Into Corbet’s Couloir

Corbet's Couloir is often named as North America's most iconic and difficult inbounds ski run. The jewel of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, it appears ominously to anyone riding the famous red box to the top of Rendezvous Peak. 

First skied by local ski patroller Lonnie Ball in 1967, it has since become the benchmark of which all Jackson skiers compare themselves.

During one day in 2011, a crew of athletes, the youngest only 13, took to Corbet’s Couloir to film a segment for TGR’s The Dream Factory.

What occurred was uniquely Jackson Hole, and uniquely TGR, with athletes from the old and newschool showcasing what makes Corbet's so timeless. With a new generation proving themselves and the old guard standing their ground, this day will remain in TGR's collective conscious forever. 

Find out what went into filming the session.

As if stomping Smart Bastard wasn’t enough, Kai Jones wanted to show that skiing is more than just hitting cliffs. After honing his backcountry skills throughout the season, he dropped into another absolute classic, Jackson Hole’s Once is Enough Couloir – a 1,000-foot shot straight down the steep face of Cody Peak. Like any good big-mountain line, the couloir required some rock climbing to get to, but that didn’t faze Kai, nor did the ultra-steep turns on the descent. RELATED: Check Out All
