Following up on last week’s world premiere, the world tour for Jeremy Jones’ Further rolled down the hill for its second stop, at the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. More than 1,200 people came out to meet Jeremy, check out the new gear from O’Neill and Jones Snowboards, get swag from Clif Bar, Lombardi Sports, LiftTickets.com, and of course to get pumped for the season with the free lift ticket offers from Squaw Valley and Mt Bachelor.
As warm as it has been in San Francisco, you could tell that winter was definitely on the mind as the crowd filed in; people were definitely pumped up for the movie they’ve been waiting for two years to see.

Each segment got the crowd more and more excited, and by the time the movie ended, the only look of disappointment was in people’s faces when they left the venue and realized we still have a few more months until the mountains have enough snow to play on. Winter is coming soon enough!!!
Awesome turnout San Francisco; the Further tour moves on as Jeremy heads up to Seattle and Portland for shows on September 14 and 15, and then on to Orem and Salt Lake City next week.

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
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
