With no ropes, no pistes and no one telling you where you can and can’t go, La Grave, France represents a very special type of freedom rarely found in other alpine ski areas.
Narrated by a community of locals who have been freeriding in La Grave for the past two decades, and who still reside there today, this short ski film from The Faction Collective follows Sam Anthamatten and Johnny Collinson as they discover the steep faces, burly lines and unique collective spirit at the heart of La Grave.
