TGR’s Higher Unplugged takes you behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones’ two-year snowboarding film, HIGHER. Here are the first four episodes of the series:

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.

In episode 2 of Higher Unplugged, Jeremy Jones comes to Bryan Iguchi’s hometown of Jackson, WY, which is also the birthplace of Jeremy’s freestyle riding. Jeremy has always been set on further exploring the Tetons and conquering the Grand, but was unsuccessful in both DEEPER and FURTHER. More determined than ever, Jeremy Jones and Bryan Iguchi prep for the mission to ride the Otterbody of the Grand Teton. A massive storm rolls in further delaying the long time goal, but together, they make the best of it.

In Episode 3 of Higher Unplugged, Jeremy Jones and his fellow athletes travel to Snowbird Resort to refine their mountaineering and rescue skills at the International Pro Riders’ Workshop presented by Teton Gravity Research and ICEdot. Started by TGR and former lead guide, Jim Conway, IPRW has emerged as an essential resource for these athletes. Each December, TGR’s production crew, athletes, and guides spend a week learning and reviewing the skills necessary to safely navigate backcountry terrain and respond to emergencies that may arise within it. With a curriculum that includes rope and rescue skills, snow science, group dynamics, and wilderness first aid, the International Pro Riders’ Workshop helps skiers and snowboarders push further into the backcountry—and safely return from it.

Jeremy Jones trusts his life to the contents of his backpack. On a recent trip to Alaska, he spent each day ascending mountains with over thirty pounds on his back. Avalanche gear, climbing equipment, cameras, food, and water are just some of the items contributing to this load. Yet as Jeremy reveals in this episode of “Higher Unplugged,” each item is essential—as it may save his life or those of his travel partners.
