This literally is truck porn, if you love the Ford F150 Raptor, snowboarding and Ken Block. Why freeze your butt off with a snowmobile when you can travel the backcountry in style with your F150 Raptor?
Ken Block takes his Ford F-150 RaptorTRAX out to the Baldface Lodge in Nelson, British Columbia to put it to the test as the ultimate backcountry snowboard expedition vehicle, along with fellow Monster Energy athletes Zak Hale and Ethan Deiss.
I have watched this series from the first film, Deeper, where Jeremy changed backcountry snowboarding for ever, by pushing the limits of where you could go, stay and ride. I watched the follow up, Further, and he once again pushed the boundaries of Snowboard exploration and earned the National Geographic “Adventurer of the Year” award. Now in the final installment, Jones and his crew are going deeper, further and much, much higher for the third and final installment of this incredible snowboard journey.
Witness the journey of one of the greatest big mountain snowboarders of our time.
Ten-time Snowboarder magazine ‘Big Mountain Rider of the Year’ Jeremy Jones revolutionized backcountry snowboarding with Deeper, his 2010 ode to splitboarding and human-powered adventure. His 2012 sequel Further took him to the planet’s most remote mountain ranges and earned him a nod as a 2013 National Geographic ‘Adventurer of the Year’. His environmental advocacy work with Protect Our Winters won him recognition as one of President Barack Obama’s 2013 ‘Champions of Change’. Now, Jones and TGR’s crew are elevating their game and taking their quest to the highest standard for the third and final installment of the Deeper, Further, Higher trilogy from Teton Gravity Research.
Higher will premiere September 6, 2014 at Squaw Valley, CA followed by a world film tour.

There are very few things in this life that can compare to riding deep champagne powder! Japan has long been one of the top destinations for riding in deep pow pow and for good reason. With ocean on both sides and the right mountain line ups, they get fresh dumps almost every night. I could watch this video for days, but it would mean booking a ticket to Japan. Will Jackways is a great rider coming out of New Zealand and he spent the start of his winter in Powder paradise…
I had butterflies the whole time I watched this! These guys are riding such heavy lines, just checkout the on board footage. You cannot even see the landings.
Flo Orley attacks the steepest-ever ridden powder face in Austria for a FIRST snowboard descent.

Welcome to your Friday mix and while interest is on new wetsuits to deter sharks, check out this close encounter with a 5m Great White off of Port Elizabeth. I ran a video last year of Eugene van Wyngaardt fending off a 3m Shark. Seems he decided to have an encounter with a bigger one. You can actually see the spear point pushing in her skin as he fends her off. Scary stuff!
