I’m home early from Japan… Unfortunately, I had a little mishap with the groomer on the way back to the chair. Tried to nollie, caught both tips, shoulder slam, broken collar bone, and off to the hospital. I’m back home now awaiting surgery, which I’ve been told will ensure a quicker recovery. That being said, after I get all patched up, I plan to work on some new Atomic ski graphics, rehab my clavicle, and get back skiing/ filming in no time.

Secondly, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the messages and positive vibes through twitter, facebook, etc… I have some rad fans out there. So, all you ladies and gents keep ripping and enjoy the fresh snow that finally fell across the states.

Lastly, here is a gallery of iPhone pics that I load to instagram through my travels (in case you don’t iPhone). Enjoy!

Due to my love for powder, sushi, and Japanese culture, I am headed back over for yet another trip with my old friends at Black Diamond Tours. I believe I’m at a trip total of 6 now… Really racking up the ANA mileage.

I will be reuniting with my good friends, and Nimbus Independent partners; Eric Pollard, Pep Fujas, Andy Mahre, Ike Smith, Justin Wiegand, and Nate Abbott to film our 2012 installments of the En Route series. Make sure you follow twitter: @ChrisBenchetler and Facebook for all the updates. I will try and do my best to post photos and videos whenever possible.

In the meantime, please enjoy this segment from our last trip over to Hokkaido together… This was a very fun night shred cut out and uploaded from En Route Japan. Happy New Year everyone!
