The Faction Collective presents La Grave
La Grave has an almost holy reputation; awe-inspiring and humbling in equal parts.
Faction is proud to present their brand new film, La Grave. Narrated by a community of locals who have been pioneering free-riding in La Grave for the past two decades, and who still reside there today, this short ski film follows Sam Anthamatten and Johnny Collinson as they discover what makes this unique ski area so mythic.
Among the wild and dangerous terrain, the team discover a place of timeless legend, a place that represents a very special type of freedom.
Faction was born 12 years with one goal in mind, to make affordable skis, that had to last 100+ day seasons, survive without servicing and be thrown in the cupboard for the summer. But more than anything, they had to increase stoke factor. They had to be fun. An independent group of skiers, artists, film-makers, staff, partners and fans that has grown over the past 12 years to more than just a sum of its parts, united by a love for the mountains and the tools that allow them to escape there.
