Mia loves spending her time outdoors. She loves to adventure into the mountains around her home in Truckee, splitboarding into backcountry huts, climbing, mountain biking, skateboarding, backpacking, and snowboarding. Mia is the 2022 IFSA North American Freeride Snowboarding Champion and will be competing for the USA at the Junior World Championship in Austria.
As the daughter of professional snowboarder and POW founder, Jeremy Jones, she has always valued the environment, and even as a child, participated in climate marches and trash cleanups. But her work does not end here, she has worked with local businesses to help reduce their carbon footprint, worked to implement a ban on single-use plastics and a fee on Styrofoam through a Truckee town council working group. She is the president of her high school’s Envirolution Club and has started a Voting Club. Seeing the importance of climate action, she looks forward to joining an influential team of fellow athlete activists, sharing her youth perspective and learning from amazing people around the world.
