Jeremy Jones in Conversation with Lowell Skoog at WRI

11/12/2022 - 7:00pm

Join us in welcoming Jeremy Jones and Lowell Skoog for an evening about the life-changing power of time in the mountains, the value of stoke, and how beauty and how beauty and openness underscore all outdoor adventure. Jones will be discussing his new book, "The Art of Shralpinism: Lessons from the Mountains," with Northwest ski historian and author Lowell Skoog.

Based in part on the hundreds of journals Jeremy Jones has kept over the years and featuring wisdom from his friends and mentors, "The Art of Shralpinism" takes an experiential approach to contemplating mountains, snow, and adventure. Through art, poetry, and journal extracts, Jones traces his development from racer and extreme snowboarding film star to explorer of the deep backcountry and climate activist.

JEREMY JONES is an award-winning snowboarder, the owner of Jones Snowboards, and the founder of Protect Our Winters, a global non-profit that unites passionate outdoor people to protect the places they love from climate change. The recipient of eleven “Big Mountain Rider of the Year” awards from Snowboarder Magazine and a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, Jones has starred in dozens of snowboard films including his highly acclaimed trilogy Deeper, Further, and Higher.

As a skier, climber, writer, and photographer, LOWELL SKOOG has been a keen observer of Northwest mountaineering since the 1970s. He is the creator of the Alpenglow Gallery and founder of the Northwest Mountaineering Journal, websites that celebrate local mountain culture, and he was a key member of the team that launched the Washington State Ski and Snowboard Museum. Skoog is the chairman of the Mountaineers History and Library committee. He lives in Seattle, and is the author of "Written in the Snows: Across Time on Skis in the Pacific Northwest."
