Corbet’s Couloir – One Epic Day – Jackson Hole from KGB Productions on Vimeo.

This Jackson Hole, Wyoming, chute is notorious for the number of skiers who come down with a case of cold feet upon approach. And for good reason: the legendary Corbet’s Couloir starts with a 25-foot plunge before snow and skis connect, and then skiers are left to navigate a 55-degree slope flanked by a rock wall that turns into a run forebodingly called “Meet Your Maker.” Apparently, the chute’s namesake, Jackson Hole Mountain Guides founder James Barry Corbet, spotted the deadly stretch in 1960 and said, “Someday, someone will ski that.”

Wish I had the guts to do this…or to have done it when I was younger…I am too smart now…
