What Is Higher? - Higher Unplugged Episode 1

In episode 1 of Jeremy Jones' Higher Unplugged, Jeremy explains how his approach to exploring and riding mountains has evolved. No longer is he seeking out the iconic peaks, but rather focuses on exploring the "blank spots on the map," making first descents in remote and uncharted zones. The Deeper, Further, Higher trilogy encapsulates Jeremy's life as a snowboarder and captures the essence of snowboarding and Jeremy's love for the mountains. Higher Unplugged takes you behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones’ two-year snowboarding film, Higher.Jones has gathered friends old and new to pass the torch to the next generation of big mountain rippers. His crew for the film includes Bryan Iguchi, Luca Pandolfi, Lucas Merli, Ryland Bell, and others. With these friends, Jeremy leaves tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds he's made his own around Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe. He also makes history with far-flung first descents in the Eastern Alaska Range and the Himalaya of Nepal, where the stakes are as high as the peaks themselves.

Ouch. It’s one thing to be skiing and riding as aggressively as the athletes on the Freeride World Tour, and it’s an entirely different thing to be crashing as hard as they (sometimes) do. Competing at the highest level leaves very little margin for error, and that’s pretty clear if you watch some of the bails from the 2021 Tour. There’s everything from 60-0 in a matter of inches (shoutout Aymar Navarro and that snowbank) to folks going SPLAT off gigantic airs (shoutout everyone else). Hope

​VIDEO: Carson Storch + Jaxson Riddle Mix Dirt and Snow

Living in a mountain town means the fun never really stops, especially during the overlap of seasons, when ripping on dirt and snow are possible on the same day (or even at the same time). For a few weeks in the spring, Snowshoe, West Virginia can be shared by riders looking for both dirt and snow. So of course, Carson Storch invited his buddy Jaxson Riddle, and snowboarders Sean Fitzsimons and Luke Winkelman to shred a custom-built snow and dirt track to celebrate the changing of the

Nothing short of mellow shredding, insane fun, teaching moments and an overload of talent across the board.  This little BTS of the day from Burton is guaranteed to make you smile with a stacked squad of Mark McMorris, A$AP, Selema, Luke Winkelmann, Jake Canter, Zeb Powell… (Does it get any cooler?
