Before Shaun White won Olympic snowboarding gold, there was Jeremy Jones, whose wild rides on some on the steepest mountains inspired a generation of riders. Now this pioneer is upping the ante as he takes his board to some of the most remote mountain ranges on the planet, where helicopters can’t go and falling can mean death.
That is what 60 Minutes Sports concluded when they profiled big mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones in a segment called, “No Fall Zone.” The seventeen-minute profile explored everything from Jeremy’s early days in Cape Cod, Massachusetts to his most recent decent of the Shang Gri La spine wall in the Himalayas. The profile not only humanized Jeremy Jones but also explained where the motivation to ride these mountains came from.
