Jackson Hole, WY - Home of Corbet’s Couloir

Jackson Hole, WY. Home of Corbet's Couloir and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

Corbet’s was named after Jackson Hole ski instructor and mountain guide Barry Corbet who spotted the narrow crease of snow and was quoted saying, "Someday someone will ski that.”

Barry was correct, It was first skied by local ski patroller Lonnie Ball in 1967 and now has gained an international reputation from skiers around the planet as a slope to test their skill. To get to Corbet’s, one must jump in the famous Jackson Hole Tram that carries up to 100 passengers a distance of 12,463 feet and 4,139 vertical feet to the top of Rendezvous Mountain (10,450 ft).

After exiting the tram at the top of Rendezvous Mountain, skiers wanting to check out Corbet’s venture to skiers left, while others that head to skiers right can ski down Rendezvous Bowl or head out of bounds. Corbet’s has been listed as America’s scariest ski slope and noted as one of the top ski runs around the world to attempt before you die.
