“Full Circle” features the untold story of Barry Corbet, the namesake of Corbet’s Couloir. An intrepid skier, mountaineer, explorer, filmmaker, and Jackson Hole legend, Corbet broke his back in a helicopter crash in 1968.
Nearly 50 years later, Trevor Kennison broke his back snowboarding in the Colorado backcountry. Unable to walk again, Trevor tried sit-skiing – an adaptive device enabling wheelchair users to ski – and in 2019 became the first sit-skier to launch into Corbet’s Couloir at the Kings and Queens of Corbet’s competition. His 60-foot jump went viral and launched his career as a professional athlete.
“Full Circle” explores the interconnected paths of Corbet and Kennison and their journey as leaders in the disability community.
Listen below for KHOL film critic Jeff Counts’ interview with director Josh Berman and the film’s star, Kennison.
“Full Circle” screens at the Center for the arts on Friday, Jan. 12 at 7 p.m.
