It’s a fundamental question of philosophy: are we who we are because of where we’ve been and what we’ve experienced or is it all genetics? That’s the question at the heart of This is Home, a 45 minute globe trotting ski movie from The Faction Collective.
The Swiss ski brands team of athletes welcome each other to their homes in Finland, Montana, Utah, Switzerland and the Czech Republic to explore how where they came from influences how they ski. The footage is filled with fun looking lines, ridiculous falls and huge airs.
While I can’t say I came away with any deep insights or answers I did walk away entertained. And feeling like I got my money’s worth: The flick is free, available online at https://youtu.be/E3zFEhrcAvU
The brand is also giving away a trip for two to Faction’s home hill of Verbier. Enter here: https://ca.factionskis.com/pages/competition
