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.

This is Still The Most Relatable Ski Off-Season Video We’ve Seen

Do you ever wake up to your legs tingling from withdrawals because of the lack of stimulation they're used to in the wintertime? Do you sometimes find yourself obsessing over that one line you never did four months ago? Or find yourself incessantly thinking about how you'd rather have a nose on the verge of frostbite than be sweaty as hell in the humid summer air?  Well, you might just be a snow addict. Some people are addicted to sugar, others to caffeine and working way too much. But

A Chat With Mike “Bird” Shaffer – One of Chamonix’s OG Speedriders

Mike “Bird” Shaffer grew up at the end of the road in a commune. The families there bonded with each other through nature, instilling their values and learning what it was to be a community.
