It’s ski-movie season! The latest Teton Gravity Research/Jeremy Jones collaboration, Higher, has dropped around the U.S., and with it, TGR produced a short film that features my organization, Adventurers and Scientists for Conservation.

While filming for Higher in the Himalayas last winter, Jones collected glacier samples for ASC.

“Find something that you connect with, because collectively if we all do that, we can make a difference,” Jones says in the film.
