Squaw Valley hosts film screenings, athletes to benefit nonprofits

The second of two screenings of Jeremy Jones’ big mountain snowboarding movie, “Further,” will be held on Saturday to support Protect Our Winters (POW) and Girls on the Run.

Hosted by Squaw Valley, 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 both showings are $15 for adults and $7 for kids 12 and under. 100 percent of the ticket proceeds will go to Protect Our Winters (POW) and Girls on the Run — Sierras.

Doors will open at 3 p.m. today with the film starting at 4:30 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for the second showing with the show starting at 8 p.m. Athlete autographs will take place before each film begins.

“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.”
