Chris Benchetler is Gratefully Busy - LPP #170

Chris Benchetler - Fire On the Mountain

Chris is busier than he’s ever been. He's blending together his ski career and the Grateful Dead collabs while being a new parent, with another on the way. (We recorded this during nap time.) He joined us from his home in Mammoth California to explain how he fits all of this into his schedule and manages to maintain balance. 

LISTEN ANYTIME on   SPOTIFY  / APPLE PODCASTS  /  GOOGLE PODCASTS

 

Listen in and hear Chris talk about what broke up the Nimbus crew, how Todd Jones from TGR got him started on the path to the Grateful Dead, how he got a full segment, in one day, in Alaska this year and much more.

Enjoy!

It appears that Whitefish has all the classic ingredients of a quintessential ski town. There’s a ski resort eight miles from downtown, a world-class National Park in its backyard, and plenty of open space

Must Watch: Wave Skiing at Mavericks

Big waves are nothing new to surfers these days, but how about to skiers? California skier Chuck Patterson decided to combine two of his favorite things-- big wave surfing and skiing on some of Half Moon Bay's biggest swells. Using custom skis designed specifically for this feat, and taking inspiration from Patterson's late friend, Shane McConkey, they allow him to carve the waves as he would snow.
