"I love crepes!" JON Jon Conway - Canada

Backcountry Guide and Avalanche Skills Instructor Jon Conway’s constantly wind burnt cheeks and silly smile let you know immediately that he stays on the grind in all elements. “Jonway” also happens to be a maple syrup drinking, lumber-jacking, poutine eating Canadian shredder that is nicer on his stick than he lets on. Jon has “OG” status as a filmmaker, but has switched gears and gone after numerous Canadian guide certifications as of late. After his season guiding and teaching in the massive peaks of Hakuba, Japan he joins the SASS Argentina crew as a guide. Jon makes his home in Whistler and is an active member of the Canadian Avalanche Association.
