Kings and Queens of Corbet's is happening Tuesday, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort announced Monday afternoon. The athletes gathered for a welcome party Sunday night, giving them time to high-five and amp themselves up before the contest.
Tomorrow, some of the world's best free skiers and snowboarders, along with some up-and-coming bright stars, will launch themselves off the lip of one of North America's most famous in-bounds runs. The resort's park and pipe crew has also built several jumps, including a pair of huge ones at the bottom, to make the course more interesting.
"It takes the pressure off the drop-in at the top," events manager Jess McMillan said.
Each athlete will take two runs, and they will judge each other to choose the top three men and women. Spectators can gather in Tensleep Bowl below Corbet's, where the athletes will finish their runs. The first is set to drop around 10 a.m.
