Snowboarder Mag just informed us of some sad news, Jerimiah James Pebley, better known as Miah, passed away. For years Miah was a fixture at snowboard events as part of Snow Park technologies, which is how our paths crossed way back when. He was always down to share a hotel room or drink a beer, and he will certainly be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him. Brad Farmer wrote a touching memorial for Miah on the Snowboarder mag site, including quotes from people who knew him best.
Most of Jerimiah’s friends knew him as “Miah” and as a person who had a larger than life personality, a priceless sense of humor and as someone who was just a good human being. He grew up in Big Bear and one of his best friends during those years was Janna Meyen Weatherby. “Miah was always there for me when I needed support,” says Janna. “It makes me smile when I think of how he’d tell stories of us growing up in Big Bear and terrorizing the neighborhood. I heard them all more than once but that’s a special bond you share with those who you grow up with and go through life together with.”
