Corbet’s Couloir, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, USA. Much more than a simple run, this is a legendary place for skiers around the world. Nicknamed the “scariest run in the United States”, the start of the run begins on a vertiginous ledge followed by an incredible free fall of more than 6 meters to a very narrow rocky corridor.
