A victim of severe poverty since birth, Ryan Hudson grew up living in and out of homeless shelters. At age 14, Ryan was introduced to snowboarding through Outdoor Outreach, a non-profit organization dedicated to using outdoor activities to empower at risk youth. When Ryan stepped on a snowboard his life took a 180. Now competing as a semi-pro athlete, Ryan’s story shares just how transformational the outdoors can be. Jones Snowboards is proud to have Ryan ripping our boards. Check out the video above to hear Ryan’s story and look out for more from this extraordinary shred ambassador soon.
Video produced by The North Face, Camp 4 Collective and Snowbird Mountain Resort.
