Jon Burak – Publisher and Co-Founder at Mountain Life Media

Jon was born in Ontario but got out of there shortly after high school and moved to the Coast Mountains to ski, become a rafting guide and generally get outside as much as possible. In 2005 he started Mountain Life Coast Mountains with Glen Harris, balancing his publisher’s duties with deep powder days, river trips and roadtrips to Tofino and beyond. His favourite peak is Mount Currie in Pemberton, BC. “I stared at that mountain for ten years before I finally got to ski it,” he says. “It was well worth the wait.” Jon and his partner Kar (also a former raft guide) are proud parents to little Levi, a 3-year-old who just learned how to ride a bike.
