TGR presents HIGHER Unplugged – Episode 1

From Teton Gravity Research:

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.
