The desire to see more terrain and ride lines in the wilderness far from helicopter and snowmobile accessed zones was what motivated Jeremy Jones’ to begin working on the DEEPER project in 2009. One of the primary zones he wanted to explore more was his own backyard mountain range - the California Sierra. Here’s a look back at a few highlights from these very first DEEPER Sierra missions through the photo archives of Seth Lightcap.
