Volcano Touring

Chile: Spirit of the Volcano | The Faction Collective

By: Ethan Stone December 09, 2022

Will The Faction Collective ever stop traversing the globe in search of exciting new ski destinations while creating beautiful ski films? All signs point to “no.”

In September 2022, Sam Anthamatten joined Duncan Adams and Sophia Rouches on a journey to southern Chile. Their mission: to bag summits and lines on a row of imposing Chilean volcanoes. Along the way, they skied everything from spring corn and rime ice to freshly fallen powder, all while getting closer to the unique culture of the region. If you’ve ever dreamed about skiing taking you to exotic and exciting new places, this one’s for you.

From YouTube: The Faction Collective travels to Chile for a ski touring adventure. The mission? Discover and ski some of the most impressive volcanoes on a road-trip south, connecting with the local community to understand the significance of the volcano in Chilean culture.
