Chris Benchetler and Jossi Wells rally to complete ‘The Sierra Trifecta’ in finale of “Chasing El Niño”

In the finale of his web series Chasing El Niño, Chris Benchetler embarks on a California-centric adventure with friend and fellow Atomic and Dragon Alliance athlete Jossi Wells. The adventure was dubbed ‘The Sierra Trifecta.’ The goal was to bag a steep couloir in the morning, embark on a rock climbing mission in the afternoon and finish it out with an evening mountain bike ride. Not everything went smoothly, as the couloir portion took the group about 11 hours to complete, but in the end they accomplished each badass Sierra Nevada recreational activity. The entirety of the episode is entertaining, but how frickin’ cool is it to see X Games star Jossi Wells shredding steep backcountry lines?

Take a look back at each episode of Chasing El Niño, below.

Episode 1: “California’s Comeback”

Episode 2: It’s Always Cloudy in British Columbia

Episode 3: “The Meltdown”
