Straight from TGR:
Witness the journey of one of the greatest big mountain snowboarders of our time.
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 TGR’s 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 will premiere September 6, 2014 at Squaw Valley, CA followed by a world film tour.
