Here it is, the trailer for the second film in snowboard legend Jeremy Jones´ planned trilogy – Deeper, Further, and Higher – filmed by Teton Gravity Research.
Jeremy Jones is one of the most famous big mountain snowboarders of all time. He made a name for himself charging down Alaskan spines for a decade and living the normal pro freeride lifestyle, dividing his time in the mountains between riding in ski resorts and wild mountains with the help of helicopters.
Times are changing along with the climate and the consciousness of the outdoor world, and the resulting trends are pushing the ski and snowboard film industry towards the backcountry. Using mechanical means to get up the mountains is considered increasingly bad style, even though of course, everyone is using planes and normal communications to crisscross the world in their search for attaining the ultimate adventure.
It has also been the latest trend among superstars in the snow business to take their riding “one step beyond” and “into the “wild” and to “earn one´s turns” at the same time as one is riding where few people have ever been.
In the film Deeper, which came out two years ago, Jeremy Jones is doing the above-mentioned, and taking his riding into the wild backcountry. In the second film in the planned trilogy, he’s now claiming to take what he´s doing in Deeper even one step Further.
The direction of today in the mountain snow industry is definitely towards the backcountry. Jones was one of the first to see where the trend was going when he started his grand project, and he has definitely helped inspire thousands of people to go outside of the ski area boundaries, to buy a pair of skins, a split board or touring skis, and go out explore and expand their mountain experience.
Shot on location in the Japanese Alps, the Atomfjella Mountains in Norway, the Karwendel Range, Austria, the Wrangel Mountains, Alaska and the Sierras in California with a list of riders that includes, amongst others, Jeremy Jones, Terje Haakonsen, Lucas Debari and Mitch Toelderer.
The full movie is coming out in the fall, but check out the trailer below as well as Jeremy´s thoughts on the project. Also, read an interview with Jones at Teton Gravity Research here.
