More behind the scenes from the making of Jeremy Jones’ upcoming movie project, Deeper.
Sometimes it’s easy to forget that in snowboarding, especially big mountain riding, getting to the spot to shoot is half the battle. But with this, frankly insane, Blanche de Putrey face in the Mont Blanc range, the crew had to spend the night before in an eagle’s nest of a hut tagged on a tiny crag. It gives us vertigo seeing it on the internet…
Here’s what the film crew had to say: “In this episode the crew heads to the La Fourche Hut in the Mont Blanc region. No ordinary hut, it requires being fully roped up and climbing a rocky, knife ridge to get there. The hut only being part 1 of the mission, the crew eyes a face called Blanche de Putrey. This face saw a first descent in 1978 and has never been repeated. Take a look at this gnarly face, it has Jeremy losing sleep…”
We’ll be posting the video of Jeremy answering your questions asap too, so check back for more JJ goodness.
