Further Unplugged takes you behind the scenes of Jeremy Jones' two-year snowboarding film, Further. Get an inside glimpse of what goes on between the lines as Jones and other top riders including Terje Haakonsen, Xavier De Le Rue and Josh Dirksen travel to exotic locations such as Japan, the Arctic Circle and the Wrangell-St. Elias Wilderness. Challenges arise around every corner as this crew attempts to push their minds and bodies further.

In the first episode of Further Unplugged, Jones travels to Japan to snowboard with Josh Dirksen and Forrest Shearer. With the help of Japanese mountain guide “Yeti” Dave, the group explores the Japanese Alps on splitboards and scores deep powder turns. But the true adventure begins when a blizzard moves in and the crew must hunker down in a high alpine refuge. 

In episode 2 of Further Unplugged, Jeremy Jones takes his crew to the island of Svalbard in Norway, in the Arctic Circle. In the town of Longyearbyen, they pack for their trip and meet up with snowboarder Terje Haakonsen. It takes three days to pack a week's worth of food and gear onto snowmachines, which they then ride 180 kilometers north. What they anticipated to be a relatively manageable commute to camp turns into a 30-hour ordeal as multiple sleds get stuck in the melting ice. But the terrain Jeremy discovers makes the trip worth it.
