JEREMY JONES: TACKLING ICONIC AK LINES BY FOOT

Shortly after landing in Valdez, Alaska, Jeremy Jones was scooped up from the airport by his two older brothers. His snowboarding gear was loaded in the car and they set out for Thompson Pass. As they wound through the Chugach mountains, Jeremy took in the landscape with wide eyes and disbelief. The 19-year-old from Cape Cod couldn’t believe what he was seeing, let alone fathom that people actually snowboarded down these giants. But there was one mountain in particular that took his breath away. It was much taller than the surrounding peaks and it appeared to have a natural ramp. Legend has it that the mountain was struck by a meteorite in 1927, thus giving it its name: Meteorite Mountain.
