Chris Benchetler // ATHLETE
Born and raised in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Chris has spent nearly his entire life on snow. Starting with the alpine team he cut his teeth on the race course between gates, and years later started to graze beyond the GS course to the terrain park to explore further. His style and ingenuity quickly emerged onto the freeskiing competition scene with appearances on the sport’s biggest stages (X Games, U.S. Open, Gravity Games). Making the leap from amateur to professional at age 15, the evolution has continued to the backcountry for over two decades to become one of the sports most recognized athletes, both on and off the snow.
