Jeremy Jones in conversation with Hana Beaman

Join Jeremy Jones at Sehome High School Theater for an evening about the life-changing power of time in the mountains, the value of stoke, 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 local pro snowboarder Hana Beaman. Hosted by Village Books.

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.

Packed with instructive anecdotes, useful lists, and interviews with other high-profile athletes, this compendium of hard-won lessons and inspirational reflections addresses the esoteric aspects of becoming a Shralpinist (a lover of shredding and alpinism). From the role of mentors to the ethics of risk-taking, Jones explores the nuances of creating a resilient mountain life, as well as more practical topics such as the relative usefulness of snow pits vs. hand pits, the art of the turn, and keys to terrain progression.

In The Art of Shralpinism, Jones reveals the life-changing power of time in the mountains, the value of stoke, and how beauty and openness underscore all outdoor adventure.

Doors open at 7pm. Tickets range from $5 for voucher and seat reservation to $32 for book/ticket combo.

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.

HANA BEAMAN has been a professional snowboarder for 21 years. Originally hailing from the mountains of Southern California, she was first known for park riding. Competing in events such as X-Games, US Opens and World Champs dominated the first decade of her career, but once she got a taste for fresh pow and the backcountry she was drawn further and further north to ride bigger and better mountains and eventually focused mainly on filming in the backcountry. After another decade of filming for video parts and traveling the world, Beaman feels fortunate to be able to call Bellingham home. She first met Jeremy Jones when they were teammates in the early years of her career, and he has made a substantial impact on her life and snowboarding.
