Corbet's Couloir vs. Squaw Valley's hardest runs?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Headed to Jackson Hole and wondering if anyone can provide a comparison of Corbet's Couloir to some of the more challenging runs at Squaw?

Thanks!

Never skied squaw or corbetts for that matter but I've looked at Corbetts a lot. If you are comfortable skiing 45 to 50?degree slopes, then the only issue is the entrance and that's dependent on conditions. The cornice can be quite a drop. The easiest entrance is skiers left and the issue there is that you have to negotiate the traverse line generally widened by snow boarders AND make that left turn. Otherwise you smack the rock wall. But once you're in and make that turn it's pretty sweet, straightforward, and steep.

Depends what you mean by Squaw's hardest runs--Squallywood runs like McConkey's and it's variations, or  the runs in the Chimney of the Palisades are orders of magnitude harder, but then I'm sure Corbet's is nowhere near the hardest run at JH, just the most famous.

This might be of some value/interest to you...
