Legends Who Came Before Us: Words From Jeremy Jones

Editor's Note: This is an excerpt from Jeremy Jones' No Words For The Way Down, the book, now available in the TGR Shop.

DEEPER

"We stand on the shoulders of the legends who came before us. They move the needle forward— they unlock the secrets and the unknowns. A few in every generation sacrifice their lives in the pursuit of progression. To many it seems senseless, but that can be the price of adventure. Watching them fall can make us all wonder why we do it. Yet to not explore, to not evolve, to not seek out precious new ground would be a disservice to those who came before us, to those who showed us the way to the wild and raw places where life can be lived in its most pure and precious form."

Travis Rice’s Insane POV from Kings and Queens of Corbet’s

Of course, Travis Rice was going to put on a show at Kings and Queens of Corbet’s—Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is his backyard after all. Launching into the infamous couloir, Rice went HUGE by not only airing Corbet’s but also the subsequent kickers at the bottom. All in all, it was an absolute dream ride. If you’ve ever wondered what it’d be like to go full send into Corbet’s, here’s your chance. Rice just dropped the POV from his first run and it’s insane. RELATED: Watch the 2019 Kings
