Obsessed, addicted and immersed in the mountains since 1983, I have written my life story around snowboarding. I have been all in from the beginning - hiking resorts before they allowed snowboards at age 9, all-night drives to Jackson Hole in high school to score first tram of the year, hiking all night to score a first descent at dawn. Becoming a pro snowboarder was not an optional career, there was no back-up plan.
Now 26 years after stepping on my first snowboard I feel blessed to have been given the opportunities I have. From riding some of the world's wildest lines to naming mountain peaks to the countless signature products I have helped create, it's been an honor to be a part of snowboarding's evolution. During this journey I have often focused on the performance of my equipment. How can we make this board better...rail an edge harder...weigh less without sacrificing durability? After ten years of working with the R+D teams on new designs and technologies, the time had come to take that quest to make the perfect snowboard to the next level.
Jones Snowboards is the latest offspring of my life-long commitment to snowboarding. I started Jones Snowboards to develop the highest performance all-mountain boards on the market - freeride boards that reflect everything I've learned both on the snow and in the factory. Every snowboard we produce is born of my passion.
