Our crew at OvRride is extremely excited to be teaming up with our friends at Teton Gravity Research to bring the one-night only NYC premiere event of their newest EPIC film. Higher is a story in the journey of one of the greatest big mountain snowboarders of our time, Jeremy Jones.
Ten-time Big Mountain Rider of the Year winner, Jones revolutionized backcountry snowboarding documented in the first installment in this TGR series, Deeper, his 2010 ode to splitboarding and human-powered adventure. In 2012 the sequel, Further, took him to the planet’s most remote mountain ranges and earned him a nod as a 2013 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, and his environmental advocacy work with Protect Our Winters won him recognition as one of President Barack Obama’s 2013 Champions of Change.
You know if its snow on the East Coast, we’re going to be there representing… So get down and join us for the premiere Thur October 16th!

This promises to be an incredible night, with athlete appearances, a TON of prize giveaways from our partners including Swatch watches, Jones snowboards, Sony Action Cams, lift tickets to Killington, and of course, your chance to win a few trips with us when we start to OvRride the mountains for the 2014-15 snow season.
TGR will be donating $1.00 per ticket from this show to Protect our Winters, an organization Jones founded in 2007. Protect Our Winters has since become the environmental center point of the global winter sports community, united towards a common goal of reducing climate change’s effects on our sports and local economies.
