The Inertia

Follow along with Chris Benchetler, one of the most stylish skiers in the business, as he takes his multi-colored skis for a spin (or two) in the deep powder of the backcountry near Haines, Alaska this past spring. The trip was not an easy one for Chris, juggling family, gnarly ski conditions, and a global pandemic, but he made it happen. For a deeper dive into the story behind Chris’ pow mission, check out the interview with him here, where he discusses the significance of this latest trip to Alaska and returning to the place where it all started for him at 18 years old with the late ski legend JP Auclair.


Only the best. We promise.
