Deeper, Further, Higher: Jeremy Jones Interview

Jeremy Jones rides a line in Svalbard Norway. Photo by Dan Milner

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.

Wilderness First Responder: What It’s Like To Use It

I didn't notice that Jen was in this photo at the time that it was taken. If I had, maybe things would’ve played out differently.  On July 2nd, I woke up at 4a.m. in my hammock. I packed up my sleeping bag and quietly tossed it into my already loaded 4Runner, doing my best not to wake anyone else up. A few friends and I had been camping in the Popo Agie Wilderness outside of Lander, Wyoming near the Wind River Range. By 11a.m. I was putting on my snowboard boots on the side of the road on

Court okays development of controversial Jumbo ski resort on sacred BC land

Flickr The Supreme Court of Canada ruled Thursday that building a year-round ski resort on lands considered sacred by the indigenous Ktunaxa Nation does not violate religious rights, per a report by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). In a unanimous ruling, nine Canadian Supreme Court justices denied a 2016 appeal filed by the Ktunaxa Nation to block the construction of the highly controversial Jumbo Glacier Resort in British Columbia on the grounds that it impinges upon the Ktunaxa

Burton’s Team USA Uniforms Looks Like Spacesuits

It's official, Burton just dropped Team USA's snowboarding uniforms and... well... they're something.  The North Face took subtle inspiration from NASA for the freeskiers' uniforms in the lettering but it stopped there. Burton went full spacesuit, basically creating an exact replica of Neil Armstrong's duds.  Burton hasn't been afraid to push the design envelope with its Team USA uniforms. The jean/plaid combo of 2010 is the stuff of outerwear legends and this is sure to join the pantheon of
