This year we are excited to announce we are carrying Faction Skis, and are currently the only Faction dealer in the Tahoe area. Designed in the Swiss Alps, Faction brings a fresh new look and feel to the ski industry with well built and solid skis. From the park to big mountain, Faction has some of the best skis around, and has been recognized for such in numerous buyers’ guides and product reviews over the years. This season we are carrying the Candide 3.0, Candide 1.0, and the Prodigy for men’s skis. For Women’s we are carrying the Heroine, Supertonic, and the Ambit, as well as the Kennedy and Candide 4.0 Junior skis.

Faction skis are solid and well built making for a lively and fun ride. Solid edge hold makes every turn exciting, and dampness makes for a smooth ride, even at high speeds. We were lucky enough to ski the Prodigy last spring and were blown away at how good it skied. It was solid on every turn, super fun and playful, and by far one of the best skis we have ever skied, so much so our backshop guy Tyler didn’t want to give it back. The Candide 3.0 is a step up from the Prodigy with more carbon fiber making for a light and nimble ski, and at 112mm underfoot, it promises to shred the soft snow.

Whether you’re looking for a solid all mountain ski, a powder ripper, or something to play around on in the park, Faction has you covered. Faction makes awesome skis for Tahoe style skiing, and we are very excited to start seeing Faction ripping around the mountains of Tahoe soon.
