Deeper, Further, Higher: Jeremy Jones Interview

What Further trip stands out the most in your mind and why?

Jeremy Jones: All the trips were really special to me. It's hard to pick one. I think going up to Jeremy Jones Further Camp in AK

What's your favorite place to ride in the Tahoe backcountry, if you're just going to go for the morning, or on an average Wednesday?

JJ: When ever I'm out in the mountains with someone I tell them to tell their friends that we're on Donner Pass.

[Laughs] Nice. Over the past two years while filming for Further, who did you ride the most with and why?

JJ: Well, I probably ride with Ryland Bell more than anyone just because in the winter we live in the same town, and Ryland is … He rides every day. And so it's just a guarantee. If I need someone to call to go ride, to go do some mission, to go ride bulletproof ice at the resort, a rainy, slushy day in the backcountry, whatever. Ryland's down. He's happy. He's charging.

What do you hope to show with the whole trilogy of Deeper, Further and Higher?

JJ: I would say in general, just a general kind of vibe, is to get people fired up to go into the mountains. Inspire them to push themselves. Wherever you are on that spectrum, that could mean different things. I want to give the viewer a really good taste of the mountains, and also hopefully educate some people on the mountains. Because I think that's important. If you're inspiring people to go into the mountains, it comes with a responsibility to also educate them about the mountains.

The Bucket List: How to Ski Or Ride Tuckerman Ravine

Tuckerman Ravine is a rite of passage for many East Coast skiers. The iconic cirque on Mt. Washington was one of the incubators of American skiing. In 1939, Toni Matt became the first person to straight-line the headwall, accidentally, at the infamous American Inferno, a 4.2 mile race from the summit to base. Toni completed the 4,000 vertical foot course in just 6 minutes 29.2 seconds, reaching a top speed of 85 mph–on wooden skis. You don’t have repeat Toni Matt’s feat in order to

From NYC Desk Job to TGR Photographer, Meet Nic Alegre

I’m not gonna lie, when I was speaking with Nic Alegre about his career in action, environment, and lifestyle photography, I about cuffed him to the table, forcing him to hand me his life. Weird, maybe; warranted, yes. The dude travels the globe alongside elite athletes, photographing their almost annoying beautifulness. Rest assured, I held myself together. Alegre’s not chained up. Instead, he’s kicking it in New York, recouping after a whirlwind year, a large part of which he spent
