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.

Video: Highlights From Audi Nines 2019

After a week of freestyle skiing and snowboarding at Sölden's superpark, Audi Nines 2019 has come to a close. Chock full of big air, style, and progression, this year's Nines was one to remember. The less-structured Jam Session provided a venue for David Wise to set a world record for highest quarterpipe air to a banked landing. Andri Ragettli also managed to land a quad-cork 1980, putting us only 40 degrees away from the elusive futurespin.  Related: This Year's Audi Nines Course Looks
