Jones Snowboard’s team riders are not just ripping snowboarders. Our crew is a collection of adventurous and creative people that are also extremely talented at sharing their love for this wild world of shred through words, photos and videos. Hopefully you already follow many of our team riders on Instagram, but if not, here’s a selection of the eye candy you missed out on this winter.

Part one of the Jones’ Insta-gallery features shots from the feeds of Ralph Backstrom, Alex Yoder and Liz Daley.
