On December 28th 2014, Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, Asymbol, and TGR hosted an evening with Travis Rice, Jeremy Jones, Zahan Billimoria, and Steve Jones where the unique elements involved in creating Higher were discussed, specifically the Otter Body Line on the Grand Teton. The work that goes in to something like this begins long before you put board to snow. "We can't fool ourselves into thinking that we can eliminate the risk on a line like that" states Exum Guide Zahan Billimoria. All proceeds from the event went to Protect Our Winters.
In Part 1 of The Otter Body Experience, Jeremy discusses how the Tetons fueled his growth as snowboarder and inspired him to embark on more ambitious human powered missions, culminating in the achievements showcased in Higher.
