Video of the Day – Jeremy Jones’ Higher Trailer
Teton Gravity Research presents the trailer to Jeremy Jones’ Higher
Over the past few years, snowboarding legend Jeremy Jones has pushed the boundaries of the human powered backcountry snowboarding experience with his films Deeper and Further. Now in the final chapter of his trilogy, Jones takes us to the pinnacle of whats is possible with his new film Higher. It is going to be hard to wait until next fall to see exactly how high Jeremy Jones has gone, but judging just from this trailer, it is going to worth it.
From Teton Gravity Research – “Ten-time Snowboarder magazine ‘Big Mountain Rider of the Year’ Jeremy Jones revolutionized backcountry snowboarding with ‘Deeper’, his 2010 ode to splitboarding and human-powered adventure. His 2012 sequel ‘Further’ took him to the planet’s most remote mountain ranges and earned him a nod as a 2013 National Geographic ‘Adventurer of the Year’. His environmental advocacy work with Protect Our Winters won him recognition as one of President Barack Obama’s 2013 ‘Champions of Change’. Now, Jones and his crew are elevating their game and taking their quest to the highest standard for the third and final installment of the ‘Deeper’, ‘Further’, ‘Higher’ trilogy from Teton Gravity Research.
Higher traces Jones’ snowboarding journey from hiking Cape Cod’s Jailhouse Hill as a child to accumulating several generations’ worth of wisdom and expertise about thriving and surviving in the winter wilderness. Jones has gathered old friends and new to pass the torch to the next generation of big mountain rippers, leaving tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds he’s made his own around Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe, and making history with far-flung first descents in the Eastern Alaska Range and an unclimbed, unridden spine wall in Nepal’s Himalayan mountains, where the stakes are as high as the peaks themselves.
