Crowd favourite Crazy Karl Fostvedt took out a crazy Kings & Queens of Corbets over the weekend with an awesome performance in near perfect snow conditions at Jackson Hole. For King of course! Queen went to Madison Blackley.
The iconic event is a freeride favourite bringing together a bunch of the World’s best skiers and riders intent to impress dropping into the legendary couloir that has tested so many thousands of ordinary less skilled/brave punters with the age old question “To drop or not to drop?”.
No questions here, all 26 athletes were up for the drop and then some! Tricks landed such as double backflips, nose butters, huge methods and an insane wall ride were all displayed for a socially distanced crowd below in Tensleep Bowl.
Viewers worldwide will be able to watch the competition for free and in its entirety on Red Bull TV and jacksonhole.com beginning on Monday, Feb. 22, 2021 at 1:00 pm MST which is a convenient 8am EST Tuesday 23rd in Australia – good breakfast viewing crew! Or just watch it here ..
In the end, the athletes judged the competition and two runs stood out for the win. Karl Fostvedt and Madison Blackley took home the first place, title and cash to win the event in the men’s and women’s divisions. Second place was Hans Mindnich for the men and Audrey Herbert for the women. In third place Jake Hopfinger and Zoe Vernon took the podium. Competition was stiff this year and rounding out fourth and fifth place for men were Parkin Costain and Elias Elhardt respectively. JHMR is pleased to announce that all the winning athletes male and female will receive equal cash compensation. That prize money is $10,000 for first place, $5,000 for second place and $3,000 for third place.
“The event was incredible. The athletes took skiing and riding to a whole new level this year,” stated JHMR Senior Events and Partnership Manager Jess McMillan. “We had a challenging weather window (it just keeps snowing!), not to mention pulling an event off like this in times of COVID. It’s a true testament to the dedicated staff, athletes and partners to execute such an amazing competition this winter. We are so grateful,” McMillan added.
