From the one-of-a-kind mind of Mammoth Lakes local Chris Benchetler comes TGR’s latest short film collaboration, Fire On The Mountain. Having been directly contacted by The Grateful Dead, Chris Benchetler spent well over a year crafting and perfecting this revolutionary film that features the world’s best athletes on a transcendent journey of skiing, snowboarding, surfing, and music, complete with psychedelic visual effects and a soundtrack comprised of only Grateful Dead Music.
Fire On The Mountain features some of action sports’ most legendary athletes including snowboarding’s Jeremy Jones, Danny Davis, Kimmy Fasani; surfing icon Rob Machado; skiers Michelle Parker and, of course, Chris Benchetler, who won second place in this year’s poll for ‘best male skier’ by Powder Magazine.
Filmed over the course of one of the deepest winters on record, the visual journey showcases never before seen visual effects within nature and original artwork by Benchetler and Skye Walker. Enjoy!
