Chris Benchetler is good at a lot of things: Skiing, ski design, taking pictures with his phone. And his Instagram feed has been making us jealous lately. He’s in Wanaka, New Zealand, one of the most photogenic places on the planet, skiing and shooting with the Atomic team. We asked him to share a few of his shots from the trip so we could all live vicariously.
Here’s what Chris has to say:
“I’m currently down in New Zealand shooting for the new Atomic catalog. The trip has been amazing so far. I’ve quickly learned how incredible the small town of Wanaka really is. There are relatively large surrounding mountains that have plenty of unique and playful ski terrain. The temps are warm and there’s insane mountain biking/rock climbing down in the valley for the down days. Not to mention it has to be one of the most photogenic countries I’ve ever visited, which is why I’d like to share a few of my instagram shots with you. Every direction you look is a stunning view. Enjoy!”
