This past Friday, Squaw Valley hosted the second installment of Jeremy Jones’ Deeper, Further, Higher series. Nestled at the base of the historic KT-22 lift, people came out in droves to witness the journeys of a man that is arguably the most respected and revered snowboarder of all time. By some estimates, upwards of 3,000 people were said to be in attendance, and the shred stoke was easily felt. In addition to Jeremy, some of the other stars of the film, Ryland Bell, Forrest Shearer, and Lucas Debari were also in attendance.

Jeremy and the Teton Gravity Research family had some big shoes to fill following up a film as monumental as Deeper, and they definitely delivered. Jeremy gave Ryland Bell some of the most impressive props in the film, talking about how he has really come into his own and is handling the elements like a true veteren. Forrest Shearer gave the crowd goosebumps on a few occasions with his breathtaking runs, and also his honesty in reacting to getting handed a beating by mother nature. Terje Haakonsen stepped away from his self proclaimed “digital world” to spend some time with “Jeremy Jones, the Mountain Goat,” and Lucas Debari showed us why he is one of the most revered youngins in the backcountry world.
