The Kings and Queens of Corbet’s is now an annual event in Jackson Hole where skiers and snowboarders launch themselves of the famous couloir. Anyone who has launched Corbet’s or even just looked over the edge will tell you it is intimidating, but the athletes in this event don’t let intimidation worry them. The event is always a thrilling mix of progressive skiing and snowboarding as the invited athletes launch off the Corbet’s lip, and last year the tricks included double back flips and 540s.
However, the 2019 event will also be remembered for the run put down by sit skier Trevor Kenninson. It was amazing, and this video tells Trevor’s inspirational story of how he has dealt with a life-changing injury and reached the point in his life where he is confident launching Corbet’s Couloir.
“The Kings & Queens of Corbet’s pushes the boundaries of what’s possible on snow. Trevor Kennison expanded those boundaries even further by being the first person to send the nose of Corbet’s Couloir on a sit-ski. His run instantly took the action sports world by storm and launched his career as an athlete and advocate for adaptive sports. Watch as Trevor opens up about his life-altering injury and his journey to the Kings & Queens of Corbet’s with Travis Rice and friends.”
