Jeremy Jones- Higher Unplugged Episode 3

TGR PARTNERS WITH ICEDOT FOR IPRW – HIGHER UNPLUGGED EPISODE 3

Teton Gravity Research

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.
