Tired of long lines and skiing the same runs over and over at the resort every weekend? The Faction Collective is hooking up the winner of today's giveaway with a pair of backcountry skis and poles, adios lift lines. The Prime 3.0—developed with Sam Anthamatten, and built with a lightweight Swiss hybrid balsa/flax core and full layers of TeXtreme carbon—is a torsionally rigid yet lightweight backcountry ski, made for nimble yet solid high speed run outs from couloirs and powdery crevasse fields. Including a pair of prime poles, this setup is ready to take you anywhere your backcountry heart desires.

About The Faction Collective:

We started Faction as ski bums – the things we made needed to be affordable, they had to last 100+ day seasons, survive without servicing and be thrown in the cupboard for the summer. But more than anything, they had to increase our stoke factor. They had to be fun. As the years went by, our design and production processes became more sophisticated but we never lost sight of why we started Faction. We are an independent group of skiers, artists, film-makers, staff, partners and fans that has grown over the past 12 years to more than just a sum of its parts, united by a love for the mountains and the tools that allow us to escape there. We are The Faction Collective. Learn more at factionskis.com.
