Our outdoor playgrounds are in peril and our votes this November will decide their future. Professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones has watched winters change drastically during his 45 years spent in the mountains. More extreme weather, fewer snow days, and economic strain on mountain towns.
And yet, climate change remains a divisive issue. In the new film Purple Mountains, Jeremy seeks common ground in the heart of America's purple states, having honest discussions with individuals who don't see eye to eye with him.
“What we stopped doing as Americans is talking to each other. I truly believe that we all want a clean, healthy environment. So I decided there’s only one way to find out, go meet my neighbors.”

With the 2020 election looming large, Purple Mountains is both urgent and hopeful. There are over 50 million passionate outdoor enthusiasts across the country. And even though we may disagree about climate policy, our shared love of the outdoors unites us. Join Jeremy on a physical and philosophical journey to tackle the conversations that will help decide the next election — while hucking a few cliffs along the way.
