When Jeremy Jones first went to Valdez, Alaska, to snowboard he lived in a snow cave on Thompson Pass and survived on a box of Clif Bars he brought with him. So it's no wonder the company sponsors him. However, since Jones' first trip to AK, he has seen global warming change the mountains. Because of that, he started the nonprofit Protect Our Winters. Last month, Jones went to Washington, D.C., for the second time to lobby against climate change and to protect the environment. Watch the above video about his recent trip to Capitol Hill.
For more on the trip, read an interview with Chris Davenport and Auden Schendler of Protect Our Winters here.
