In episode 10 of Higher Unplugged, snowboarding legends Jeremy Jones and Bryan Iguchi lead an overnight mission into Jackson Hole’s legendary backcountry. Joining them are young Mammoth based freestylers, Frankie Knab and Jimmy Goodman.
Jackson is where Jeremy Jones first cut his teeth as a big mountain rider almost twenty years ago. Today, along with fellow pioneer Iguchi, they are passing the torch to the next generation. Together, the four boarders hike, ride, and camp in the obscure zones of Jackson’s backcountry.
Higher Unplugged takes you behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones’ two-year snowboarding film, Higher. Jones has gathered friends old and new to pass the torch to the next generation of big mountain rippers. His crew for the film includes Bryan Iguchi, Luca Pandolfi, Lucas Merli, and others. With these friends, Jeremy leaves tracks on signature lines in the close-to-home playgrounds he’s made his own around Jackson Hole and Lake Tahoe. He also makes history with far-flung first descents in the Eastern Alaska Range and the Himalaya of Nepal, where the stakes are as high as the peaks themselves.
