Chris Benchetler is one of skiing’s most creative individuals, both on and off the mountain, and this beautiful short film is a study of his progression as a skier, an artist and a father. Filmed in Alaska, Unraveling shows Benchetler smoothly skiing silky spines, working on his art and spending time with his family, the three things that define his life – “bringing simplicity, clarity and freedom.”


“To me progression is to keep evolving,” Chris says in the narration. “Evolving as an artist – I’m always trying to work towards an elevated state within myself. I’m evolving as a father, the entire process is unknown. All you can do is surrender to expectations as you mature and grow.”
