Meet Jeremy Jones, legendary big mountain snowboarder. He’s a on a mission he has never attempted before, to ride the rowdiest terrain on earth without the help of helicopters and snowmobiles... this time, Jones is on foot. He sets his sights on the same mountain range he built his career on. As Jones takes on the biggest challenge of his life, a massive Alaskan storm comes in and their mission turns into survival.
The team is hunkered down on a glacier in the Alaskan wilderness, stuck in a storm cycle and low on food. Sixty miles from the nearest town and on foot, their options look grim. Just as they start to plan their escape, the heavens answer their prayers with clear skies and fresh snow. It’s time to take snowboarding to the next level.
Jeremy Jones takes his lessons learned from Alaska and applies his new knowledge to his own backyard, the High Sierra Range, California. Jones brings along his apprentice, Ryland Bell for this mission and the two test the waters of hiking the rocky High Sierra, aiming for the most striking and technical lines they can find.
Jeremy finally gets the chance to ride with a snowboarder he has always respected and admired, Xavier De Le Rue. The two are similar in many ways but come from totally different worlds. They hit the Swiss Face first and instantly Jeremy feels out of his element but with the help of Xavier, he conquers a line of incredible exposure.
Without any ice climbing skills, Jeremy has quite the learning experience, climbing the Tour Ronde in Chamonix, France with Xavier DeLeRue. When Jeremy gets stuck in a fatal, no fall zone, he must flip his board holding on with only his ice axes. Will Jeremy be able to conquer the technical mountaineering of the European Alps?
Jeremy sets out for his third and final European objective; The Blanche De Peuterey, considered to be one of the most dangerous, difficult peaks in the European Alps. Along with big mountain snowboarder Xavier DeLeRue, the team set out to find a remote alpine hut perched on an 1100-foot rocky ridge. As the team heads up the next day, falling rock and snow has them questioning this mission.
