Jones – Zom Connection

Julien Herry and friends inspire winter sports in Pakistan Jones rider Julien ‘Pica’ Herry has been exploring the mountains of Northern Pakistan for over a decade. 

Fascinated by the terrain and delighted by the warm hospitality of the local people, he’s returned to this Himalayan region every winter he can. 

Pica’s connection with Pakistan took an eventful turn in 2019 when he nearly died in an avalanche accident in the Hunza Valley. The local community showed him tremendous love in the aftermath of the accident which stoked his fire to give back to them anyway he could.

In the winter of 2020, Pica found his path to give back by founding an organization called Zom Connection that’s dedicated to helping develop winter sports in Pakistan. Learn about the Zom Connection and see epic images from their recent work in a new Jones Journal story.
