Before protected parks were the norm and venturing into the mountains was seen as a foolish risk, John Muir roamed the wilderness like no one before him ever had. What was he searching for? Something different. Fast forward more than 100 years later, and it appears Muir’s exploits birthed a kindred spirit in big mountain snowboarder and explorer Jeremy Jones.
In his first movie since the Deeper, Further, Higher series, Jeremy Jones and Elena Hight travel deep into the Sierra Wilderness, a place John Muir explored extensively to do what Jones’ does best: foot powered big mountain exploration. With Olympic halfpipe rider Elena Hight in tow for her first winter camping experience, this is sure to be an epic journey.—ML
