With no chairlifts, no tracks and no one trace around you, La Grave constitutes a much special type of freedom nowhere to be found in other high mountain ski regions.
Spoken by a bunch of natives who have been free-riding in La Grave for the more than a decade, and who still live there now, before you is a short ski film that follows Sam Anthamatten and Johnny Collinson while they uncover the nearly vertical slopes, big lines and collective spirit like nowhere except at the heart of La Grave.
Join Sam Anthamatten and Johnny Collinson set away to La Grave in France, to discover the lines and the locals that are making this Alpine paradise one of the most mystical freeride place on the planet.

Check out THE DICTATOR 4.0
The heavily built big-mountain ski in the Faction Skis lineup, Dictator 4.0 is the ski of choice for Sam and Johnny when they put their minds on conquering steep terrain, narrow couloirs and wide open faces. Double titanal layer inside, Fusion-Light Core and directional free-ride shape make this one a one of a kind uncompromising performance ski for the most difficult terrain.
