This tour is not to be missed.”
From London to Salt Lake City, Verbier to Vancouver, Helsinki to Tokyo, Faction’s film will reach far and wide.

Faction says of the film, it’s “a journey to find what makes us skiers.” To uncover those secrets, the ski manufacturer follows its athletes to their homes around the globe, providing insights as to “how they get it done on home turf.” Faction adds, “From Europe to the US and back again—via old playgrounds, new challenges and favorite lines—This Is Home chronicles what it means to be a freeskier today: where the conditions are what you make of them, and the search for that perfect ride starts in your own backyard.”
The film stars Duncan Adams, Sam Anthamatten, Johnny Collinson, Adam Delorme, Mathilde Gremaud, Alex Hall, Daniel Hanka, Tim McChesney, Antti Ollila, Arnaud Rougier, Eirik Sæterøy, Pablo Schweizer, Kelly & Henry Sildaru, Giulia Tanno and Candide Thovex.
