Jackson Hole - couple of Corbets runs
Had my son do some POV while he was lapping corbets on Monday and Tuesday. figured I'd post it in case some of you have never gotten a tram lap in at Jackson or taken a drop down Corbets.

Nice vid, but damn I had to mute it about 30 seconds in. :laugh:

I really gotta get up to JH.

Ughn :blink: that drop in is pretty scary! Considering the fact that on vids everything looks flatter... just wow.
You're kid's and awsome rider :thumbsup:

BTI: I'd be like that skier at :50; staring down the drop, mesmerized, and then happpily back off to let your kid go first :D

probably one of the gnarliest chutes in north buddy used to drop off that left side ledge, 40 footer into the middle when conditions were primo...kudos to your son, that is some nutwrenching shit to stand above

Nice vid on that drop, your son sure have cajones:laugh: did you tried that too?

I did 3 laps in the morning Tuesday, these were in the afternoon. If I had never been there, I would have turned around and got back on the tram. The visibility was like 15 feet in the morning and the wind was gusting up to 60mph. Intense for sure.

Jackson is one of my favorite places mow, everything is steep. I'm looking forward to big sky in early April. That place looks insane too.....

Man, I just got back from there also. Wish I saw that vid before I went, so I could have tried it myself--didn't know where exactly Corbets was located and thought it was probably a bit more extreme than that. Pretty intimidating up there with 10-15' visibility not knowing where you're going.

First time there of my favorite places so far. Hardly spent any time on groomers the whole 5 days, except when traversing. Got some really nice runs hiking over to headwall and from the spider crawl above bridger over to crags area. Hobacks area was pretty sweet, as well as the area next to it straight down from laramie bowl. The backcountry stuff that was easily accessible--like rock springs and cody--seemed to actually get tracked out much faster than the inbounds hikable terrain.

Need to get myself in better shape before next time, lots of hiking required to get the most out of your experience out there. Wore myself down pretty bad and managed to catch a nasty chest cold on my way out.

Idk...never been, but have seen vids where you drop big air into Corbets...but it looks like you don't have too do any big air that correct? least that is what it looks like from Matt's vid. If that's the case...looks sweet...I'd be lapping that gash...sweet snow conditions...who needs to be able to see...let it rip.

I hope I will not get too much stick for linking to ski videos, I reckon these are worth it.

Teton Gravity did a pretty impressive session at that drop-in:

I particularly like this drop (the above video has a better angle, but this one feels more 'raw'):

You can roll into it, it's still a free fall for a little bit. That snow and ice face under the skier in the first video is like 12-15' right now and you can edge about 5' of it..... Steep landing so either be in control of your speed or ready to go full on balls to the wall down the lower face. The landing would be great for big air. If it's clear on our next trip my kid wants to flip it. He doesn't ever flip anything that he hasn't riden numberous times unless it's in a nice park. He actually preferred rolling into this switch for some reason.... The first time we did it I was like wtf..... Our skier friend bailed and couldn't sack up for it....
