Faction and The Glacier Shop join to make a Whistler season opening bash to remember

Whistler is one of the core resorts on the freeski scene. The Faction Collective has put its feet down there with a solid team including Ryan Oakden, former IFSA Freeride Champion, Shane Carmichael, our rock n' roll freeskier and Adam Topshee, who stepped it up this year making the front cover of WB Magazine and the Whistler/Blackomb insert in Powder Magazine, on Faction Skis. Together with these guys on the ground, making the party happen, Faction has joined one of the main retailers in Whistler, The Glacier Shop to throw a full on season opening heave. The party will start in the shop with a display of this year's line joined by artists and DJ who will back up The Faction Collective emphasis on design. After the crowd will move on to the Millenium Theatre for a screening of Rage Production's "Such is Life" sponsored by Faction Skis. Finally as the Red Bull truck follows, screening the action and dropping some beats, the entourage ends at Moe Joes Tavern for some more serious partying. The Faction Collective wants to send a special shout out to Shane Carmichael, whose band was supposed to play at Moe Joe's but who has unfortunately sustained serious injuries due to an accident. We know all of his friends will be pulling for him over the coming weeks.....

Stay tuned for more related news like some new team announcements happening in Whistler and hopefully some stupid and wrong party photos...........
