Q & A

I most remember trips to the Tatras using a splitboard and a tent, and doing lots of climbing. I like nature away from ski lifts and using a helicopter. I figure that by climbing we are able to minimize the risk of mistakes and we can go downhill from the really difficult mountain walls. Of course, I'm also thinking back to Alaska - this area is vast and amazing!

Scandinavia - splitboarding, climbing, and reaching the base of the mountains by boat. I want to go there and see this beautiful area. I would also like to designate some new lines in the Tatra Mountains this season, but a project like this involves perfect snow conditions. I hope I can make it happen.

My dad. He took me out to the mountains every weekend when I was younger, and he has given me the opportunity to enjoy the mountains the way I do today.

Jeremy Jones is the most inspirational person in my snowboarding life.
