Unlike many events where both snowboarders and skiers have respective podiums, at Kings and Queens, snowboarders and skiers compete against each other directly. There is only one King, and one Queen crowned at the event, and the cross-discipline competition adds a heightened intensity to an event that is already steeped with palpable energy. For two weeks leading up to the event, Jackson Hole closes down the famed chute to allow snow totals to pile up, and event crews to begin shaping a series of jumps and drops for athletes to descend upon. The event is a cross of freeriding and slopestyle, forcing athletes to pick a line without close inspection and then execute it in real-time. With a week-long period set for the event window, athletes gather in Jackson Hole and wait for the perfect conditions to come together before the event takes place. Cross your fingers for an early drop in, because the course will only become more rugged and trying as the day unfolds. This year marked the second annual execution of the event and brought together the very best of the best freeriding athletes from both disciplines.

Last Tuesday, February 12, twenty four athletes from around the world threw down into the iconic couloir like never before. Notable addition to the competition this year was an exhibition run by sit-skier Trevor Kennison, who launched a massive air into the Couloir. In the end, the athletes judged the competition and two runs stood out for the win. Second place was Karl Fostvedt for the men and Hana Beaman for the women. In third place Blaine Gallivan and Ashley Babcock took the podium. JHMR is pleased to announce that all the winning athletes male and female will receive equal cash compensation.
