REI presents Far Out, the new ski and snowboard film by Teton Gravity Research featuring Jeremy Jones.
Jeremy Jones is a man who needs little introduction. His professional snowboarding career spans decades. His list of snowboarding first descents is easily the longest. His vision peers beyond next season and into winter for generations with the Protect Our Winters organization. He’s ushered alpinism and mountaineering into the snowboarding world.
But while sitting at the forefront he’s always remained true to snowboarding. Jeremy is no stranger to far off places. He’s explored obscure mountains in the Himalayas, Alaska and even closer to home in California’s Sierra Nevada. This year, Jeremy joined snowboarders Robin Van Gyn and Mark Carter on an adventure in Montana’s Crazy Mountains. Little was known about riding here, but the spring camp out revealed plenty.
A few days into the trip, the crew was walloped with a storm that brought perfect powder conditions that soon turned into a highlight of the trip. Jeremy has become an expert on winter campouts and foot-driven missions. Fresh off a self-supported ten-day trip in the Sierra, the Crazies were plush, with a longtime friend as a personal chef and no shortage of food or drink. Nine days in the range brought everything from powerful storms to skin-searing spring days, snaky couloirs to massive steep faces.
Here’s Jeremy’s take on the matter, and check out the action in Far Out, Presented by REI. That last line though… when the camera zooms out. Nice…
