WATCH NOW: Faction’s This is Home Will Blow Your Mind

Anyone with a pair of eyes has noticed that Faction Skis has quietly taken the ski industry by storm for the last 12 years. Not just with gear, but with groundbreaking video content to go along with it. It started with those ridiculous Candide Thovex edits, morphed into a full-on web series, and now has evolved to their first feature-length film. To Faction, it’s always been about the athletes, and oh boy is their roster stacked. From big mountain masters Johnny Collinson and Sam Anthamatten, to BC pillow experts Duncan Adams and Adam Delorme, to the skiing prodigies that are the Sildaru twins, and the grandaddy of it all Candide Thovex, they’re all there, with several new names to add to the list.

This is Home was filmed all over the world, from pow skiing in Utah and Montana to an unforgettable park session in the Czech Republic, and finally bringing the crew back home to where it all started: the Alps.

If you’ve seen anything from their past, Faction’s take on the feature ski film shouldn’t surprise you: it’s non-stop full-on shredding that will blow your mind more than once. That being said, kick back, relax, and enjoy the world premiere of This is Home.

Video: Sam Lee Goes Beyond Steep and Technical

Sam Lee has never taken the easy road down, and this latest POV video only confirms that notion. In the Freeride World Tour’s latest post, the Kiwi shredder drops off Motatapu Chutes at Treble Cone into a deep backcountry line that blows all our minds. Shimmying down vertical rock trying to reach a line that would be described as insane at best, this is no doubt one of the gnarliest videos we've seen in a while. Technical doesn't even begin to describe the amount of skill it takes to send

Exploring Pemberton’s Pillows with Pep Fujas

Pep Fujas may be one of the most understated skiers in the game, effortlessly styling technical pillow lines, throwing big tricks off natural airs, and making it all look so easy. Oh. And he’s been doing it longer than most. Last winter, he headed deep into the woods of B.C. and found a fresh angle to an old zone, doing the usual: blasting endless pillows. The skier takes some time to analyze the new zone and walks us through what it takes to make it all look easy. RELATED: Pillow Popping and

What Does Angel Collinson Look For in a Ski?

For a diverse skier like Angel Collinson, isolating the perfect pair of skis is no easy task. While she’s most at home on big mountain terrain, Collinson’s winters are filled with more than just spicy Alaskan spines. The bulk of her time is actually spent at ski resorts tearing through groomers and exploring off-piste. It’s one of her main ways of getting prepared for the next heli-skiing adventure.
