In the last 10 years, Chris Benchetler has redefined what’s possible in the backcountry with the help of his pro model ski from Atomic. And he not only contributes by giving his skis his own graphics and style, but also came up with the idea of HRZN Tech and this ultimate powder design. Year-by-year, he comes back to the Atomic R&D team and together they further develop and fine-tune every little detail to make the best powder ski even better.

For the Bent Chetler’s 10th anniversary, it’s time to celebrate, so how does a legend live on? Offspring. That’s why the Bent Chetler family is getting bigger. With two new shapes, skiers can ride it from grom to grown-up. Meet the son: the Mini. The perfect size and shape ski for young rippers with a taste for the fluffy stuff. A ski that makes the mountain feel like a big, incredible playground. And new for this year: the 100, a do-anything, go-anywhere, one-ski-quiver, totally prepped for taking it wherever you want to go. The everyday ski that brings the whole mountain to life. You know dad: the 120. The visionary ski that sparked it all. It flies, it butters, it slashes and it carves new lines where none were before. With the wisdom of a mountain veteran and the speed and power of a well-oiled machine, the 120 brings float and fun on the deepest days.

This is the family, and they call the mountains home.
