Higher – le troisième vidéo de Jeremy Jones

jeremy-jones-higherLe freerider Jeremy Jones est très connu dans le monde du snowboard. Il a pris le monde par surprise lorsqu’il lançait son film Deeper en 2010. Des images à couper le souffle et un beau message dans tout ça. Il a ensuite sorti la suite nommée Further en 2012, qui lui a valu un prix du National Geographic. Jones conclut sa trilogie de film Big Mountain avec sa nouveauté nommé Higher. Cinq riders dans quatre endroits magnifiques. Voici le communiqué et le vidéo.

«J’ai basé ma vie autour de trouver et de rider les meilleures montagnes de la planète pour en snowboard, et Higher représente le sommet des réalisations dans ma vie comme un snowboarder. Autant que j’apprécie tous les honneurs que j’ai reçus en surf des neiges, ces lignes signifie le plus pour moi. Ils sont ma vie, mes prix d’excellence. » – Jeremy Jones

Communiqué officiel

Ten-time Snowboarder magazine ‘Big Mountain Rider of the Year’ Jeremy Jones revolutionized backcountry snowboarding with ‘Deeper’, his 2010 ode to splitboarding and human-powered adventure. His 2012 sequel ‘Further’ took him to the planet’s most remote mountain ranges and earned him a nod as a 2013 National Geographic ‘Adventurer of the Year’. His environmental advocacy work with Protect Our Winters won him recognition as one of President Barack Obama’s 2013 ‘Champions of Change’. Now, Jones and his crew are elevating their game and taking their quest to the highest standard for the third and final installment of the ‘Deeper’, ‘Further’, ‘Higher’ trilogy from Teton Gravity Research.

Higher traces Jones’ snowboarding journey from hiking Cape Cod’s Jailhouse Hill as a child to accumulating several generations’ worth of wisdom and expertise about thriving and surviving in the winter wilderness. Jones has gathered old friends and new to pass the torch to the next generation of big mountain rippers, leaving tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds he’s made his own around Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe, and making history with far-flung first descents in the Eastern Alaska Range and an unclimbed, unridden spine wall in Nepal’s Himalayan mountains, where the stakes are as high as the peaks themselves.

“I have set up my life around finding and riding the planet’s best mountains for snowboarding, and Higher represents the pinnacle achievements in my life as a snowboarder,” says Jeremy Jones. “As much as I appreciate all the accolades I have received in snowboarding, these lines mean the most to me. They are my lifetime achievement awards. »
