Chris Davenport takes on the Super C couloir in Chile

Join GoPro athlete Chris Davenport as he takes us to one of the best lines in the world. Nestled in the Chilean Andes is Ski Portillo, an old mining town turned world-renowned ski resort home to some of South America’s best terrain. Just outside the ski area boundary is a couloir called the Super C. It’s a huge climb from the ski area, but it all pays off with a 1,706-meter (5,600 ft.) descent.

Many film crews use helicopters to get to lines like the Super C, due to heavy camera gear. But it’s a right of passage to earn your turns on the Super C and in fact, taking a helicopter isn’t an option. By shooting 100 percent on GoPro, the GoPro media team was the first professional production team to climb and document the Super C.
