Jeremy Jones is, in our opinion, the most interesting snowboarder in the world. Other guys pull more tricks, but no one takes you as deep into the mountains and as deep into the internal process of riding big peaks. Over the last few years, Teton Gravity Research produced three films highlighting Jones as a boarder and as a human being. If you haven't seen the Deeper, Further, Higher trilogy, set some time aside this weekend to binge them. Then stop by the TGR website and buy No Words for the Way Down.
In the high-stakes game of big-wall climbing, the Shark’s Fin on Mount Meru may be the ultimate prize.

To start off our week (yes, we're starting a bit late), we want to share a short film we've seen spreading like wildfire around the gear internet. (Intergear? Gearternet? Ingearnet?) This one covers a lot of ground, using amazing imagery to address the relationship between father and son as time passes.
