Cam McCaul and Casey Brown send Corbet's Couloir

First MTB descent of the legendary ski run

Cam McCaul and Casey Brown send Corbet's Couloir

Corbet’s Couloir at Jackson Hole Ski Resort in Wyoming is legendary among skiers and snowboarders for being one of the gnarliest in-bounds ski runs in the world.

Couloir translates from French to mean passage or hallway. Sheer granite walls surround the Corbet's on three sides while prevailing southwest winds create a 25 to 30ft cornice on top making for a steep price of entry. Below the sizable drop lies a 40-degree slope which is in full view of the resort's main tram where cable cars pass every ten minutes.

It’s a proving ground for skiers, and which makes Cam McCaul and Casey Brown’s MTB descent all the more impressive. Alongside pro freeskier the trio descended Corbet's from top to bottom in some epic spring slush.
