Big Mountain freerider named “Big Mountain Rider of the Year” by Snowboarder Magazine for a ninth year, Jeremy Jones, has just signed with POC Sports. His addition to the POC snowboard team only strengthens them as he joins 2011 Freeride World Tour gold medalist Mitch Tölderer, silver medalist Flo Orley and 2010 Scandinavian Big Mountain Champion Niklas Hollsten.
POC is very excited for Jones being added to their team. As Forrest Davis from Snowboarding.transworld.net quoted POC founder and CEO Stefan Yetterborn, ”Jeremy Jones is synonymous with big mountain and backcountry snowboarding.”
Jones recently dropped his sponsorship with Rossignol Snowboards and started his own, Jones Snowboards. He is currently filming another movie with Teton Gravity Research.
The Red Bull Media Houses’ Art of Flight which features Jones and snowboarder Travis Rice premieres this fall. You can check out the new trailer here.
