Jones Backcountry Adventure Grant for Splitboarders
October 1, 2018 – November 30, 2018

The Jones Backcountry Adventure Grant, sponsored by Jones Snowboards and the American Alpine Club, will be awarded to a splitboard-specific expedition that’s heavy on exploration and big on adventure.

If you follow Jeremy Jones, you’ll have a leg up on the competition in terms of knowing what criteria will be heavily valued: creativity, environmental consciousness, and a deep sense of exploration. And yes, Mr. Jones is a member of the selection committee.

Expeditions must be within North America and completed in 2019. First ascents or descents are considered equally with tours or traverses. In addition to a few other qualifiers listed on the website, unleash your snow-covered dreams because this grant rewards big thinking.

The full grant includes $1500, a Jones splitboard, skins, and a backpack. Female splitboarders can also apply for the Jones Live Like Liz Award, which honors the life and spirit of Liz Daley.The cash and product awards are the same.
