free tickets to ‘Further’ screening

With the Tetons freshly capped in snow for the first time this autumn, the timing couldn’t be better for Saturday’s screening of Further, the second installment in the backcountry riding trilogy from snowboarder Jeremy Jones and filmmaker Teton Gravity Research.

Picking up where he left off in Deeper, the film finds Jones continuing to push his limits as he ventures into more remote terrain — without the use of lifts or helicopters. “Through research, patience and hard work, the crew was able to live in caves and on glaciers to ride untouched lines without another human in sight,” TGR explains.

Courtesy of TGR, we have three tickets to give away to Saturday’s early screening at the Pink Garter. For those who need a refresher: In the comments below, say you’re in — and how stoked you are for the coming winter — and three winners will be drawn at random by 3 p.m. Friday. Each winner will receive one ticket. Please submit a valid email address to enter.

The 6 p.m. screening is open to all ages, while the 9 p.m. show is for those 21 and over. Proceeds will benefit the Doug Coombs Foundation, in support of the Jackson Hole Ski Club freeride program.

Jones’ evolution into mountaineering purist is partly for the film, and partly out of philosophy. He and TGR have lobbied Congress to take action against climate change, and the company has tried to reduce the environmental impact of its other films. Jones started the nonprofit Protect Our Winters.

Norwegian snowboarder Terje Haakonsen, who dominated halfpipe competitions early in his career and is regarded as one of the best riders of all time, co-stars.
