Last year, the Faction team headed to one of Utah’s most renowned ski resorts to film a movie showing off their very best skiers on the very best of Alta.

The Faction team never holds back when they show up to get down a mountain. And when they descended upon Alta Ski Resort in Utah, the Faction Collective brought their A-game.

It was spring. The powder was endless and endlessly deep. The conditions were ripe. And when the skis hit the snow, sparks started flying. The athletes showcased their diverse styles, ripping up the versatile terrain offered by Alta, sailing through powder, slashing springtime slush, and totally sending it at every opportunity.

The film stars a lineup of powerhouse skiers: Alex Hall, Andrew Pollard, Antti Ollila, Blake Wilson, Cody Cirillo, Duncan Adams, Elisabeth Gerritzen, Kellyn Wilson, Micah Evangelista, Sophia Rouches, Tim McChesney, and Vasu Sojitra.

Faction put them all on their latest and greatest skis. And Alta provided them with an unbeatable setting for a ski movie of this caliber.

“Alta” (also the name of the film) is available on Faction’s YouTube channel and on the Faction cinema page.

Runtime: 5 minutes
