2020 Queen of Corbet's
I fell in love with skiing at Squaw Valley, where I began participating actively in the sport of freestyle moguls in my early teens. I competed on the NorAm Tour for five years as well as U.S. Ski Team Selections and the U.S. Freestyle Championships, where I earned a sixth place finish in women’s dual moguls in 2014. Three seasons ago, I transitioned to big mountain, and after only my first season, I was ranked eighth on the American Freeride World Qualifier Tour. I continue to compete in the Freeride World Qualifier competitions where I hope to one day qualify for the Freeride World Tour.

2020 King of Corbet's
I’m a 20-year-old big mountain freeride skier, a born and raised Montanan who’s based out of Moonlight Basin. I’m an adrenaline junkie who has found a career in the mountains: 2015 TGR Grom comp winner, 2017 Quiksilver Young Guns Ski winner, featured in TGR’s film “Far Out.”

As a passionate surfer, I bring a playful surf-inspired style to the Freeride World Tour that makes even the most gnarly venues look fun to ski. At 27 years old, I want to show how fun and freedom are the central components to my skiing. I like to do all sorts of riding – whether it’s going down steep big mountain faces like the Bec des Rosses in Verbier, skiing powdery tree runs in Japan, cruising spring slush or hitting jumps in the park as well as in the backcountry. When I’m not competing on the Freeride World Tour, I’m out riding and filming with my friends and just spreading the easy Italian lifestyle to the fullest.

I kicked off my career competing at Snowboarder events throughout the country. In 2014, I joined the Snowboarder film crew for the movie "Foreword" and put down a backcountry segment that put me on the map in the snowboarding community.
I was born and raised in the White Mountains of New Hampshire where I fell in love with the sport of skiing. At 12, my ski racing career started and that led me all over the world, taking part in the FIS and NorAm circuits. After retiring from racing Division I at the University of New Hampshire, I headed to Jackson, Wyoming, to chase a dream of skiing big mountain lines and deep snow. I found a passion for the creativity of freeskiing and have since taken part in events like the Rahlves Banzai Tour, Freeride World Qualifying events, King & Queens of Corbet's and any form of freeskiing I can get my hands on. I’m looking forward to entering the world of mountaineering while continuing to push the boundaries of skiing by working on my ability to grease giant airs and big lines all over the world while sharing it with the people I love.

Growing up riding the slopes of Whitewater, I found comfort in hucking my carcass off jumps and cliffs. I’m a 22-year-old skier out of Nelson, British Columbia. Last year, I got the opportunity to be featured in MSP’s “Return to Send’er.” My performance in the film garnered the Best Male Performance award in three different award shows, including the Powder Awards. When I’m not skiing, I’m spending my time mountain biking, working carpentry or messing around on my motorbike. I’m scared of Corbet’s Couloir but reckon that it’s worth a shot!

4th PlaceRaised in Park City, I now call Salt Lake City home. I have transitioned from competitions such as the Dew Tour and Grand Prix to competing in the Legendary Banked Slalom and filming many video parts throughout the past decade. As a Rookie of the Year and Video Part of the Year nominee by TransWorld SNOWboarding, I am no stranger to filming and have even produced my own video projects incorporating street and backcountry features, including full parts from “The Uninvited,” and my own project, “BuddyCam.” This will be my first big leap into the backcountry competition scene, literally and figuratively speaking.

4th PlaceInternet skier specializing in biting off more than I can chew, I call Pocatello, Idaho, home. I’ve made appearances in MSP’s “Days of My Youth,” “Ruin and Rose” and “Drop Everything.”
Sponsors: SCOTT Sports
5th PlaceI grew up in southern California riding parks and playing in the sunny slush of Snow Summit. I began competing professionally in 2001, and soon after my first X Games appearance (on a trip to Jackson in 2002!), I was introduced to riding and filming in the backcountry by Travis Rice. I continued to compete in X Games and other high-profile contests until 2011, when I decided to focus solely on filming in the backcountry. Since then I’ve worked on several film projects, including “Intervals,” “Full Moon,” “Landline” and “Listen to the Eyes.” I always enjoy returning to Jackson, as it is the place that first instilled my love of riding powder and the backcountry.

5th PlaceGrowing up, I was an accomplished ski racer in Upstate New York, and now I live in Bozeman, Montana. I will be making my Kings & Queens debut as the latest addition to Sweet Protection’s roster of sponsored athletes. I was featured in the three-part online series “Before Tomorrow” from Benshi Creative and am working on a new project this year with the Montana-based creative firm, marking a pivotal year as I look to build on a reputation as one of freeskiing’s most promising young athletes.

I grew up in the snowy woods of Northern Michigan and now call Oregon home. I love spending time in the backcountry, splitboarding, snowmobiling and exploring new terrain. I spent 8 years as a wildland firefighter in summers but now I am studying aviation as a fixed-wing pilot. Some of my favorite places snowboarding has brought me are the mountains around Revelstoke, Slovakia and the Sierras. I really enjoy riding couloirs so I am excited to be in Jackson Hole for the Kings & Queens of Corbet’s!

I was born and raised in Sun Valley, Idaho, where I got the nickname Crazy Karl at age 7. Growing up, my hero was Tommy Moe, and I always tried to live up to his motto of "Go Fast and Take Chances." I now ski backcountry full time, spending my winters chasing storms and filming powder skiing (film segments with MSP Films, Poor Boyz Productions, Teton Gravity Research, Sweetgrass Productions, Toy Soldier Productions, 4bI9 Media and Good Company).

Born and raised in Vail, Colorado I started skiing at 18 months old. With both my parents working at Vail, I had free range to spend most of her time roaming around the slopes of the resort. In 5th grade, my class went on their first hut trip where I got my first taste for free-heel and the backcountry. I excelled at telemark skiing, winning the Grand Targhee Big Mountain Telemark Competition five years in a row. I will always have a special place for telemark skiing in my heart, although now I spend most of my time fully connected to my skis, getting big air and skiing every couloir I can find. My lines are big, but my demeanor is mellow. I love people and the backcountry, and for these reasons I have found myself in Sun Valley, Idaho where I work as an emergency and post-anesthesia nurse. I find my work highly rewarding, but still need to recharge in the mountains with my friends. The bigger, the more partners and the steeper the better.

I was born in Casper, Wyoming, and now live in Jackson to follow my passion for snowboarding. Over the last few seasons, I have been filming and shooting photos in the backcountry in and around Jackson. In addition to a growing filming career, I have competed in the Kings & Queens of Corbet’s for the past two seasons.
I grew up riding the steep and deep terrain of Mt. Baker, Washington. I haven’t been able to escape the grasp of Baker and still call it home. I fish in Alaska in the summer to provide for my snowboard addiction during the winter. Banked slaloms have been my forte of competition choice, and I’ve won many, including women’s am category in the Legendary Mt. Baker Banked Slalom, Dirksen Derby, Smash Life and the Nate Chute. I recently began capturing my backcountry activities on film and released my first season edit last year, which won the People’s Choice award at the Mt. Baker Film Fest. When not shredding pow, I can be found skating bowls, pretending to know how to surf and searching for wild mushrooms in the mossy forests of my backyard.

I’m a 22 year old free skier from Oppdal, Norway. At the age of two my parents got me my first pair of skis, and I haven’t looked back since. I grew up ski racing and competing in the park, but have been focusing on freeriding the last couple year. My goal when skiing is just to have fun and see how far I can make it. This my first time skiing in the states, and hopefully I will put on a show at the Kings & Queens of Corbet´s!

I grew up in Vail, Colorado, and spent four years ski racing in New England before joining the University of Colorado NCAA team. After undergrad, I moved to Telluride, where I coached racers and big mountain freeriders, and I competed in Subaru Freeride and FWQ events. I have been a school teacher since 2015 and recently joined Jackson Hole Ski Patrol. Though I don’t have sponsors and use social media infrequently, I still enjoy pushing my limits and love the camaraderie of the athletes in freeride competitions!Watch Ashley
Originally from Golden, Colorado, I have spent more time abroad than at home the last two seasons and made a name for myself in the European scene. I most recently won Superpark Standout at SNOWBOARDER Magazine’s Superpark 22.

I grew up in Jackson Hole and have been standing sideways since 1987. My first time dropping into Corbet's on a snowboard was in 1988. I am the owner of local adventure accessories company AVALON7 and work as a shaper and brand manager at Winterstick Snowboards. My other sponsors include L.L.Bean, Skullcandy, GoPro, BlueBird Wax, Hanah, and JHMR.
I love almost everything about snowboarding and have dedicated my life to experiencing its many facets. While a member of the U.S. Snowboard Team for 10 years, I won the U.S. Open halfpipe and got a bronze medal in slopestyle at the X Games. I also won a couple North Face Masters big mountain contests and most recently won the Mt. Baker Banked Slalom Pro Masters category two years in a row. I starred in eight Warren Miller films and founded the Jackson Hole PowWow snowboard test. In my spare time, I like to make art and flyfish, but you will most likely see me practicing the art of the turn in the mountains around Jackson Hole.
Growing up in Alyeska, Alaska, I discovered the freedom of the mountain and the ability to make a terrain park out of natural features. I have worked with film companies like Warren Miller, Teton Gravity Research and Field Productions and competed in the Linecatcher, Swatch Skiers Cup and Cold Rush events. As an athlete for TGR, I travel the world to find snow in our planet’s most exotic locations. Every season TGR puts out a full-length feature film along with online content for the TGR website. I spend the winter skiing in front of the camera and the summer and fall promoting the film through social media and the film tour. The TGR film tour has over 40 stops around the world. I have attended tours in the USA, Canada, France and Austria. Ski filming locations include Alaska, British Columbia, Wyoming, Austria, and Japan.

I was born and raised in Gig Harbor, Washington, and have always had a passion for anything involving boards. My love for snowboarding began at the age of 4 at Crystal Mountain, learning how to stand sideways. The younger years were filled with countless weekends going up to Crystal Mountain and White Pass to follow my dream that I never wanted to let go of and continued when I went to the University of Colorado for college. There, I began riding out in the Rockies and competing in freeride throughout school. Riding every moment I could, I ultimately landed sponsorships with Satellite Boardshop in Boulder and Burton Snowboards. This past year, I got the opportunity to be an athlete in the 70th Warren Miller film, “Timeless,” representing Eldora Mountain. Currently based out of Crested Butte, Colorado, I will be continuing on the film side of snowboarding this season and can’t wait to see where this crazy life keeps taking me.

I’m a professional snowboarder, born and raised in the town of Jackson, Wyoming. I started skiing at the age of 2 with the support of my dad who was on the JHMR Ski Patrol for over 25 years. I switched to snowboarding (a.k.a., “The Dark Side,” as my dad would call it) at the age of 6. With snowboarding being the new fun thing in the mountains, it became clear to me that I wanted to work as hard as I possibly could to achieve the dream of being a professional snowboarder. I started competing at a young age and eventually became more interested in the filming side of the sport because I grew up watching snowboard videos of idols I've looked up to. In recent years I've worked on the new Red Bull Media House movie, “The Fourth Phase,” and Arbor Snowboards’ movie, “Cosa Nostra.” I'm so grateful to be doing what I do for a living and wouldn’t be able to do it without the support of my sponsors and amazing family. I’m currently working on new film projects and hope to live this dream for many more years to come.

Raised in Alaska, it’s not surprising that I am so drawn to big and gnarly terrain. From my early days building straw-bale kickers in snowless interior Alaska, my snowboarding has progressed to some of the world’s steepest and most technical big mountain lines. I split my time between Southeast, Alaska and Squaw Valley, CA and spends summers following family tradition on his commercial fishing boat chasing salmon and halibut.

Having grown up in Jackson and with a father on ski patrol, I’m a local ripper and have been working my way up the ranks of the freeskiing world over the last couple of seasons. I have a passion for this place and want to show my abilities.
