Professional snowboarder Jeremy Jones will speak this year at TEDx South Lake Tahoe.

The big mountain rider has helped found the non-profit, Protect Our Winters, which helps combat the effects of climate change. He also owns his own line of snowboards, specializing in backcountry gear.

The 4th annual TEDx South Lake Tahoe will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, inside Duke Theater at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Jones will join nine other speakers talking about topics along the theme of “Elevating Humanity.”

According to a press release on the event, “our goal is to uplift individuals and spark positivity so that we can help make our world a better place.”

The tickets are $75, plus fees.

To celebrate the Jones announcement, TEDx has 25 extra tickets.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and show starts at 5.
