The Faction Collective Signs Arnaud Rougier and PC Fosse to their International Team
The Faction Collective, the Swiss based independent freeski manufacturer, has announced the addition of Arnaud Rougier of France and PC Fosse of Norway, to their international team. Both riders bring a unique set of skills to this young brand, building a strong team in the face of supposed ski industry decline.
Arnaud Rougier has been part of the core French ski scene for years. Beginning his career as a mogul skier with the French Federation, he has a long list of competition experiences. Seven years in the Superpipe final at the US Open and in 2009 he won “Les Jeux de Neige” Big Air, in downtown Grenoble. Arnaud stepped on to the international stage two years ago when he started filming with Level 1 productions. His segment in this year’s film “Refresh” will be getting riders pumped during the worldwide tour starting October 15th in Moscow. This winter, his role with Level 1 will expand during several shoots already in place. Arnaud will continue to increase his athlete profile as a member of The Faction Collective while filming with his own production company; A’s Films in France and the U.S, and contributing heavily in the development of their future line of skis.

PC Fosse breaks the mould of a young and inexperienced skier with innovation and pure guts. Growing up on the rock solid ski slopes of Norway, PC has already made his mark on the sport with the first ever confirmed double-corked 1440. So far this year he placed 7th in the NZ Open among a strong field of top riders, just behind local favourite Jossi Wells. At the end of October he heads to the UK to compete in the London Freeze sponsored by LG. PC will become a front man for Faction saying, “I am stoked about Faction and love their philosophy”. Commenting on his decision to leave previous sponsor Kneissl, PC said “I really want to join a team focusing on the same sport as I do.” With other strong riders on the team to push him like Arnaud Rougier, Canada’s Mike Mertion and others, PC will certainly be a force to be reckoned with.
