Spend a season on the front lines of the finest backcountry setups in the world, stacking clips for “The Book of John J” with John Jackson.
John Jackson operates on a different plane than the rest of us. It starts on a cerebral level, where his pursuit of wisdom and passion for chasing down the zest of life are unparalleled. It continues on in a literal sense, as Jackson keeps placing himself on the highest snow-covered peaks in the world to explore the bounty of the planet’s finest backcountry offerings to, in his words, “slide down mountains on a fancy wooden plank.”
I mean, how’s this for his Red Bull TV series description? “In an ongoing quest for personal evolution, pro snowboarder John Jackson unites with top athletes across the action sports world to examine the steps of progression. Egos are destroyed, new levels of sport are reached, and enlightenment is the goal.”
Jackson’s career is an embodiment of that vision, his snowboarding a fine blend of style and scale on the path to perfect, powdery bliss. That, and he is likely one of few snowboarders that drops in on every backcountry run with a goal of reaching nirvana by they time he makes it to the bottom.
Press play and make the drop with Jackson up top, get keyed into that zest of life, then head over to Red Bull TV to check out the new season of his series in-full right after.
