We are an independent group of skiers, artists, film-makers, engineers, partners, dreamers and doers that is so much more than the sum of its parts. We are united by a love for the mountains and the world’s finest tools of escape.
BORN IN VERBIER, SWITZERLAND
It started as a small rebellion. We were outcasts — an eclectic bunch of passionate skiers prototyping new ideas in the epic Alpine playground of Verbier, Switzerland. Snowboarding had unleashed the wildness of surf and skate culture into the mountains, while our beloved Alpine skiing was dominated by big brands that had lost touch with their fans, caught up in racing to the bottom and high-volume production.
The Faction Collective emerged as a creative force along with a handful of brands bringing the passionate innovation of freedom to skiing.
Freeskiing is no longer a small faction rebelling against classic Alpine racing, but the driving force in skiing that delivers performance with a sense of freedom, fun and adventure. Faction’s relentless development process delivers award-winning skis that are used by the world’s most demanding mountaineers; Freeride World Tour champions; Olympic and X Games gold medalists; and more than 100,000 fans. We give every member of our Collective the confidence that they are riding the most progressive, best-engineered skis on the mountain.
Our innovations in lightweight-hybrid cores, rocker and recycled materials propelled our rise through the ranks of the ski manufacturing elite. Today, we’re bolstering our efforts through investment in two key areas: state-of-the-art technology and extraordinary people.
