Teton Gravity Research is in production of Jeremy Jones' two-year snowboard project titled "Further." Part the "Deeper", "Further", "Higher" trilogy, the three snowboard films focus on Jeremy Jones and his quest to take snowboarding to the most remote locations on Earth — beyond where motorized vehicles can travel. TGR's "Further" production crew just left for a trip to Austria where they hope to ride the Karwendel Range — the largest range in the Northern Limestone Alps. TGR is there riding with Jeremy Jones, Mitch Toelderer, and Bibi Pekarek. David Carrier Porcheron is set to join the crew after he competes in the Red Bull Supernatural event in Baldface, B.C. From TGR's Head of Production Jon Klaczkiewicz: It was a brutal travel day: Jackson Hole to Salt Lake City to Paris to Munich. We arrived at 3 p.m. We didn't get our luggage — which was lost — until 8 p.m. This meant we didn't leave Munich untill 9 p.m. When we finally got to our hotel at midnight to unload our gear and put camera packages together, it was locked. But today, we woke to clouds clearing. The Alps are sick. We met Jeremy Jones at 8 a.m. and went up the tram and immediately started to climb-traverse-climb-traverse-climb around huge, scary, glide cracks. Jeremy, Mitch, and Bibi hit a few super-sloughing sidecountry lines. Then clouds. After such a long journey to get here, it was nice to blow out the pipes right out of the gate. We saw ibexes and got rewarded with a 4,800-foot run back to town after shooting. Austria is beautiful! Austria is awesome! A closer look at the slope. Crazy cracks! Hiking out to the sidecountry zone to shred. Practice before heading further in to the Karwendel Range. Jeremy Jones slashes a turn in Austria. Mitch Toelderer rides a ridge with his slough pouring down. Mitch Toelderer crushes it. A third another angle of this epic moment. We saw Ibexes. Jeremy Jones is all smiles. If conditions permit, the crew will head in to the Karwendel Range in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
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
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
