O’Neill announce tour dates across Europe for Jones’ 2-year project, Deeper.
Two years in the making. Eight-times big mountain rider of the year. The most progressive freeriding in the world. Unchartered terrain all accessed by foot.
This is Deeper. This is the groundbreaking new movie by Teton Gravity Research (TGR), from Jeremy Jones and friends as he challenges all limits in the mountains without helicopters, lifts or snowmobiles.
This October, the European Deeper Tour from O’Neill, made possible by Jones Snowboards and Onboard European Snowboard Magazine, will bring this experience down from the mountains and into 11 major cities throughout Europe. Legendary freerider, Jeremy Jones will be at every stop, where he will also present his new Jeremy Jones collection from O’Neill. “I am so much looking forward to this European Tour,” said Jeremy. “For two years I have been so engrossed in this project. It’s exciting to finally see the end result and watch and listen to people’s reactions. It has been an incredible two years of work for me and I am so glad we have this opportunity.”

Starting out in the picturesque Belgian town of Gent, the movie will move through cities including Paris, Amsterdam, Stockholm and Zurich before its finale at the Freeze Festival in London.
The movie Deeper documents Jeremy Jones and selected friends including Jonaven Moore, Xavier De La Rue, Ryland Bell, Travis Rice and Forrest Shearer as they pioneer first descents deep in the mountains around the world, pushing their sport to the next level.
“It took my lifetime of experience in the mountains to achieve this goal,” said Jeremy. It is not only Jeremy’s passion and determination to charter unridden terrain, it is also his passion for the environment that comes through. “We were focused on the hard to reach zones that are not accessible by helicopters, ski lifts and snow machines, said Jeremy. “We trekked deep into the mountains, and spent days living in snow caves and tents at the base of some of the true gems that have eluded me for so long…”
