Squaw Valley hosts 2 days of big mountain snowboard films
December 27, 2012
Squaw Valley will be offering two showings of Jeremy Jones’ big mountain snowboarding movie “Deeper” today and “Further” Saturday to support Protect Our Winters (POW) and Girls on the Run. All shows will be attended by athletes Jeremy Jones, Jonny Moseley, Ralph Backstrom, Iris Lazzareschi and JT Holmes — all of whom will be signing posters before the start of each show.
Tickets for all showings are $15 for adults and $7 for kids 12 and under. 100 percent of the ticket proceeds from both nights will go to Protect Our Winters (POW) and Girls on the Run – Sierras. Doors will open at 3 p.m. for the first showings both this afternoon and Saturday with the shows starting at 4:30 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the second showings for both dates with the shows starting at 8 p.m. Athlete autograph signings will take place before each film begins.
From the award-winning producers at Teton Gravity Research (TGR), “Deeper,” presented by O’Neill, was the first big mountain snowboarding film of its kind. “Deeper” follows Jeremy Jones and other top freeriders as they travel to the world’s snowboarding meccas and venture past the boundaries of helicopters, snowmobiles and lifts to explore untouched realms.
Featuring all-night hikes, sleeping on peaks, camping 65 miles from civilization, 20 below temperatures, 10-day storms and 20-mile days that bring the adventure back into riding, “Deeper” puts the viewer in the athletes’ boots from the trials and tribulations to mind-boggling breakthroughs in the sport of snowboarding.
“Further,” the second installment in the Jeremy Jones’ snowboard movie trilogy, explores some of the world’s most remote mountain terrain while continuing Jones’ mission to camp deep in the backcountry and on the summits of unridden lines to access nearly vertical spines and wide-open powder fields.
Drawing upon a lifetime of experience Jones seeks out first descents and exotic experiences in an effort to evolve not only his snowboarding but himself. The relationships forged from isolation and travel are almost as intriguing as the maniacal descents themselves. Viewers join Jeremy and his crew in the Arctic Circle, Japan, the High Sierra and the remote Pickett Range among others as they push their minds and bodies “Further.”
