Jeremy Jones voted 2013 Avalaunch Winter Market Ambassador of the Year

Jones Snowboards is proud to announce that Founder, Jeremy Jones, is the recipient of the 2013 Avalaunch Winter Market “Ambassador of the Year” Award. The Avalaunch awards took place during Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2013 in Salt Lake City. This marks the second year in a row the famed big-mountain rider and environmentalist has taken home the honor. Adding to the stoke, Jones’ environmental foundation, Protect Our Winters (POW), was voted 2013 Avalaunch Winter Market “Company of the Year.”

“It’s an honor to be named an ambassador alongside such an amazing group of athletes,” says Jones Snowboard founder, Jeremy Jones. “What Avalaunch is doing to promote snow safety and environmental responsibility to retailers and consumers is awesome. I’m super excited and humbled to win this award.”

Highly regarded as one of the most influential big mountain snowboarders of all time, Jeremy Jones is driven to emphasize that being fully educated, combined with good decision making, is vital to snow safety while traveling in the backcountry. In 2007, Jones founded Protect Our Winters (POW) to engage and mobilize the winter sports community to lead the fight against climate change. In line with his environmental beliefs, Jones has continually designed a snowboard product line at Jones Snowboards that strives to use sustainable products and manufacturing practices where possible.
