The Pulse: Jeremy Jones


At a pretty early age, I fell in love
with the mountains. And really when I got on a snowboard. By the time I was 12, I realized
that one way or another I was going to find a way to Have snowboarding be a huge part
of my life. And as I’ve gotten older, my love is
stronger than it’s ever been. For me now, like, yes good powder
days are awesome that’s what we all dream of, but my need
to have an amazing day in the mountains it’s simpler than it’s ever been. And I think I just realized that
it’s that time in nature that’s important to me. And my snowboard is a great tool to
get me to connect with nature. I basically was seeing change
in the mountains that was coinciding with what scientists
were telling us which is the planet’s getting warmer. Realized that as an industry we
weren’t doing enough. Took a couple years to get
everything in line And then in 2007 I started
Protect Our Winters to unite the outdoor community
to come together to slow down climate change. We’re in an all-hands-on-deck moment It’s on us to do more. We see it, we know there’s a problem. Odds are if you are out there,
you have the means to influence and make change and hopefully
get us on the right track with climate policy.
