Throughout the past six years, Jeremy Jones has collaborated with Teton Gravity Research to create a trilogy of films: Deeper, Further, and now Higher. These films document his efforts to explore and snowboard mountains around the world under his own power. In this companion piece to its "Higher Unplugged" series, Teton Gravity Research provides a glimpse into Further.

Professional snowboarders may pass hundreds of hours waiting for the ideal weather in which to film their exploits. These hours can serve as a catalyst for pranks—and sometimes these pranks go farther than expected. Such was the case when Jeremy Jones and the crew from Teton Gravity Research traveled to Svalbard to film for Further. During this trip, Dan Gibeau, a rookie member of the production crew, became the victim of a practical joke.

Consequently, the outcome of their prank managed to surprise not only Gibeau, but also themselves.
