Corbet’s Couloir

Corbet’s Couloir is an expert ski run located at Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It is ten feet wide at the entrance with rock faces on three sides but opens up quickly.Entrance into the couloir requires dropping off a cornice with a free fall ranging from 10-30 feet depending upon snow conditions, landing on a 50 degree slope. Well, a couple years ago my wife and I were skiing at Jackson Hole and took a close up look from top and bottom and decided that it was not a good day to die. Very scary standing at top on a windy day into the abyss. Has anyone reading this attempted it?

My wife is in the pictures attached.

Jackson Hole is a great challenging area to ski and would recommend it to anyone that loves to ski.

    A daunting run for sure.

    It’s a bit sketch; easiest way to do it is just ride the outside wall and let it spit you into the powder at the bottom…
