This holiday season just got a bit more special with a unique evening in Teton Village featuring Travis Rice, Jeremy Jones, Zahan Billimoria, and Steve Jones , who will be taking an in-depth look at the film Jeremy Jones’ Higher. This exclusive one-night event hosted by Asymbol, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Teton Gravity Research brings together these men, who represent some of the most prominent and successful snowboarders, guide, and filmaker in the world. The evening will focus on the descent of The Grand Teton’s Otter Body route using video footage and photography from the film.

Travis shared his excitement for Sunday’s collaboration, saying “It’s an honor to spend an evening with Jeremy, Steve, and Zahan talking about making the film Higher and specifically what it took to ride the Grand with pow conditions. I’m looking forward to sharing the stories of this epic adventure with everyone in attendance.” Throughout the evening, Travis will moderate a discussion with Jeremy, Steve and Zahan followed by an audience Q&A session.
We are thrilled to be hosting An Otter Body Experience later this month,” stated Anna Cole, Communications Manager at JHMR. “Having Jeremy Jones, Travis Rice, Steve Jones and Zahan Billimoria together, and using the mountains they all love, the Tetons, as the discussion point will create an inspiring evening for all. Having the athlete, guide and filmmakers’ perspectives on a legendary descent will be sure to create a dynamic conversation.”
Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at JH Sports and Jackson Treehouse. Seating is limited, so pre-purchasing tickets is encouraged. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Protect Our Winters (POW), the environmental non-profit of which Jones is a founding member. Doors to Walk Festival Hall open at 4pm, with the event starting at 5pm.
