Ode To Muir pairs professional snowboarder and founder of Protect our Winters Jeremy Jones with two-time Olympian Elena Hight as they embark on a 40-mile foot-powered expedition deep into California’s John Muir Wilderness.
From Outside Magazine “This is not your typical snowboarding film. The visuals are stunning but it’s the movie’s themes that elevate it—namely, that Muir’s activist-minded environmental ethos is needed now more than ever. ” The journey of Jones and Hight balances the challenges of winter camping and grueling climbs to snowboard the Sierra’s unnamed peaks, with personal reflections on the importance of the natural world. The film ultimately contemplates the perspectives gleaned from past protectors who fought to preserve a great American Wilderness. OutsideMagazine.com

Watch Day One: Into The Mountains
Editor’s Note: Last spring big-mountain snowboarding legend Jeremy Jones set out with two-time Olympian Elena Hight on an ambitious foot-powered expedition across California’s John Muir Wilderness. The two ventured deep into the Sierra Nevada mountains to splitboard some of the range’s most unknown terrain. Jeremy Jones documented the journey in a travel journal that recounts their nine-day mission. What follows is his entry from the the first day of filming for Ode To Muir with photos and videos captured along the way.
