The second full feature ski film by Faction Skis, The Collective, in co-production with Red Bull Media House, is now live.

Adventuring to undiscovered peaks together, plotting midnight raids on inner-city handrails, lapping your home run until that last ray of sunshine disappears behind a distant ridge… skiing is collective. Some call it a tribe mentality, others call it a shared sense of purpose. This film is Faction's definition, written by a diverse team, each with their own ideas, their own forms of expression. The Collective is more than the sum of its parts. No matter who you are or where you come from—it feels good to be part of something special.
