Based in part on the hundreds of journals 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 Shralpinism. 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.

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