21 Days sounded like awfully long time three weeks ago, but here we are with our third blog documenting our collection of videos to lighten up your self-isolation. The end of the COVID-19 lockdown doesn’t appear to be in sight – so feel free to hit us up for more recommendations from The Faction Collective archives!
Filmed entirely on GoPro, this edit was shot over a few weeks in late-season Ruka, with Markus Fohr making his Faction debut alongside Alex Hall and Antti Ollila. With a song choice to match the high-octane, super-stylish riding of the crew..
6. La Grave
The team was always pulled towards the freeride Mecca that is La Grave. In search of deep powder, steep faces and ultimate freedom, Sam and Johnny Collinson adventured to ski this mythical location and meet the community that makes it so special.
5. One Of Those Days 2
Everyone can remember where they were the first time they watched Candide’s One Of Those Days episodes, including us. One of our favourite ski films of all time, changing perceptions of what is possible in-bounds.
The 9th and final webisode in the ‘We Are The Faction Collective’ series brough the whole crew to our home mountain of Verbier to see the season out in style. Perfect weather, perfect snow, perfect crew and a few of the biggest airs we’ve seen to date.
Sometimes skiing can feel spiritual. S01E03 is a webisode that captures exactly that: a crew in full form sessioning the famous playground of Balme deep into the late spring sunsets.
2. THE COLLECTIVE – Full Film
Our 2nd full feature ski film brought 26 riders together from over 8 different countries. We celebrated the diverse characters and original styles of skiing at the heart of our Collective values. The sum of the parts is much greater than the whole in this one.
1. THIS IS HOME – Full Film
Diving into the unknown for our first feature film, THIS IS HOME was one of our most gratifying and favorite videos to date. Follow the team as they take you on a trip to the home mountains that shaped them into the skiers they are today.
