After a week-long stint in Jackson, Wyoming, athletes and media waited anxiously for the results of the third-annual Kings and Queens of Corbet’s competition. Following an athlete judging session, scores were tallied and two new athletes took home the top honors from the awe-inspiring event.
Parkin Costain and Jackson local, Veronica Paulsen, were crowned this year’s King and Queen, forever etching them into skiing’s history books. Costain wowed his peers with a perfectly landed double backflip and followed up his entry with a series of jaw-dropping tricks. Paulsen, on the other hand, finally landed a backflip into the couloir—her third attempt in three years of competing in Kings and Queens.
