As you may have already noticed, I’ve been a tremendous slacker with updating my blog this summer. Fortunately for me, summer has engulfed all my free time and has been a blast. I’ve done a good job managing to stay outdoors doing all the fun stuff. Jp Auclair has actually long questioned and even recently named my addiction to activities- “The Benchetler Lifestyle.” He is always asking me how he too can have the “Benchetler lifestyle,” but I haven’t quite figured out my secret. I’m basically just very lucky and live in an amazing place, where with every free moment, I make sure I’m doing some sort of awesome activity. Whether it be mountain biking, rock climbing, surfing, road biking, hiking, skiing, etc…

With that in mind, I decided to blog a quick recap of my summer with a couple photos. I unfortunately don’t have a ski shot from Portillo, but maybe Adam Clark will supply one soon, and I can put it up..

In other news: Mike Douglas helped me see the benefit and importance of Twitter, so I will do my best to Tweet any fun activities and/ or exciting news that comes my way. Please feel free to follow if you are a fellow Twitter-er: http://twitter.com/ChrisBenchetler

Our Chilean cruise ship… I just returned home from Portillo where we shot all the new Atomic product for the next catalog. New Bent Chetler’s, boots, helmets, etc…Very fun trip!!

Skiing at Camp Of Champions in Whistler for Newschoolers and Atomic week. 

Wake surfing on crowley. Lay backs and throwing buckets. 

Climbing rocks in Mammoth… Loving every minute of it.

Surfing in Mexico.. I want to go back!
