Who is Corbet, and why’d he get a Couloir?

No ski resort in North America has a chute so legendary as Corbet's Couloir in Jackson Hole—this where lifelong skiers go to prove themselves. The run is named for Barry Corbet, a mountaineer who, in 1960 spotted a narrow crease of snow shaped like an upside-down funnel, high up on the mountain now known as Jackson Hole. Said he: "Someday someone will ski that."

More on Corebet’s: The tram passes by the couloir every 10 minutes. Plenty of spectators gather to watch skiers/riders drop in. Hold on! It’s a wild ride!
