Episode 106 of Totally Deep features Jeremy Jones, a longtime boundary pusher in the snowboard scene. His glass-half-full ethos is evident as he discusses the joys of riding ice and less-than-ideal conditions. He also chats about the process of writing his recently published book, The Art of Shralpinism – Lessons From The Mountains.
Episode 106 of Totally Deep features Jeremy Jones, a longtime boundary pusher in the snowboard scene. Jones’ involvement in the sport takes many paths; business owner, steep riding pioneer, and political activist as the founder of POW (Protect Our Winters). After decades of experience, Jones finally put his thoughts to paper — he recently published his first book, The Art of Shralpinism — Lessons From The Mountains. Think of the book as part memoir, part manual for best practices in the mountains, part art book, and an ode to finding joy by making turns. Page after page, Jones exudes the glass-half-full ethos. And that’s what you hear on Episode 106.

While most of the WildSnow backcountry skiing blog posts are best attributed to a single author, some work well as done by the group.
