5. Corbet’s Couloir, Wyoming

The Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is a beautiful touristic attraction that attracts tourists from all over the world. Not just because of its beautiful landscapes, but actually for its region called Corbet’s Couloir, which is one of the most dangerous ski hills that exist.

You have to be one of the best skiers in order to survive tackling this deadly slope, because it is full of obstacles, such as boulders, sharp turns, and even trees.

Due to the fact that it represents a challenge even for people who have been skiing all of their lives, Corbet’s Couloir was named one of America’s scariest ski slopes!

The good thing is that nobody has died while trying to get down the slope, but that doesn’t make it any less dangerous! There are lots of people who end up with broken bones, fractures, and blown-out knees.

Because it is so hard to arrive at the bottom safely, you will need permission from the Ski Patrol in order to attempt “having fun” on this slope.

  1. I have been to several of these n so have my adult children with their young families. You FOLLOW the rules and you will be ok!!

  2. I myself haven’t been to any of those places but being from Cherokee NC with the Great Smoky Mountains neighboring our Reservation, you see people taking risks all the time. Of course everyone loves seeing the wildlife but when they want to crowd up around the elk, putting themselves and the elk in danger, is not smart at all. The same goes for bears who are even more dangerous and to some people they don’t care! Clingman’s Dome and the Chimneys are other great places to see but not without risks. Not that far of a hike but the high elevations, steep paths to the top and sometimes high winds are unseen hazards to remember.

      Pure sensationalism. I’ve been to several of these places and never felt in danger. Follow the posted rules and you’ll be fine.

  3. Been to Pike Peak and we took the Tram, it’ a long but has some fantastic views. We looked at the road when we enjoying the top and my son and I said NO Thanks on the road it’ dangerous.

  4. Yes, we foolishly hiked Great Sand Dunes National park with the wrong shoes and no water. It was very hot and pushed my asthmatic wife to the edge trying to make it to the top. Medrano Creek was actually flowing when it shouldn’t have. That was some help to cool our feet. We are older but should have been wiser. Never saw the quicksand that this article mentioned. Good thing!

    As a photographer I have been to 6 out of the 8 locations. As long as you obey the warning signs you will be okay, however some people just put themselves in harms way. In return it is the individuals fault. The warning signs are there for a reason.

  6. I totally agree. i have been to several of these also. Follow the rules, use common sense and you will be fine.
