Jeremy Jones is not only the greatest big mountain rider in the history of snowboarding. He’s also a husband, a father, and an entrepreneur, and after twenty years of hair-raising and groundbreaking video parts, he’s finally taking a step backward in his snowboarding by taking steps forward in the backcountry. On page 90, get to know Jeremy Jones and you’ll soon learn that he’s much more than simply a deity of dangerous descents.
