Jeremy Jones’ Featured on 60 Minutes Sports

Before Shaun White won Olympic snowboarding gold, there was Jeremy Jones, whose wild rides on some on the steepest mountains inspired a generation of riders. Now this pioneer is upping the ante as he takes his board to some of the most remote mountain ranges on the planet, where helicopters can’t go and falling can mean death.

That is what 60 Minutes Sports concluded when they profiled big mountain snowboarder Jeremy Jones in a segment called, “No Fall Zone.” The seventeen-minute profile explored everything from Jeremy’s early days in Cape Cod, Massachusetts to his most recent decent of the Shang Gri La spine wall in the Himalayas. The profile not only humanized Jeremy Jones but also explained where the motivation to ride these mountains came from.

Watch the profile here and be sure to check out TGR’s Jeremy Jones’ Higher  presented by Subaru on tour this fall.

Not really sure where the football game came from, but the lines they climb and ski are nothing short of breathtaking. Check out that slot couloir at the 5:50 mark, as well as literally everything else that follows. Stoked to see some more edits from these guys in the future!

Toby Miller Sends The Elusive Yolo Flip

Only someone with the nickname like "iPod"–Iouri Podladtchikov–would invent a trick name the "yolo flip.". The yolo flip is a cab double cork 1440 in the halfpipe and was first done by iPod at Winter X Games 2013. The young Californian upstart Toby Miller saw the yolo flip as a perfect trick to add to his arsenal in the pipe. Watch Toby and Shaun White session the Mt. Hood halfpipe with the goal of putting down an illusive yolo flip.

Discussing Snowboarding’s Beginnings, Progression And The Key To Happiness With Todd Richards

The Inertia gives us a deeper look into a true snowboarding legend, Todd Richards in their latest series "creators." Todd grew up in Massachusetts as a skateboarder and first saw snowboarding in an ad in . The young Richards optimistically thought, "Oh great we can do all of our skate tricks on snow in the winter," but the reality was anything but that. Frigid temps, blue ice, and shitty equipment was the reality and caused Todd to originally hate snowboarding.  Richards moved west to
