A local legend who has made his name by skiing many first descents around the world. Epic adventures with fellow pro-skiers Trevor Petersen and Eric Pehota, that included first descents of Mount Deborah in Alaska, University Peak in the Wrangell Range, and the iconic East Face of Mount Tantalus.
Foon spent fifteen years skiing professionally for major ski brands, influencing the design of modern freeride skis, while being told "that skis can't be mass produced." Johnny has taken that feedback and carved his own shapes and designs, in his own name, Foon Skis.
Today, Johnny is out in the mountains skiing with Kye Petersen & Matty Richard, exploring new zones, and talking about the design and development of the skis they are creating together.
