People often asked why I started evo and when it started, and I’ve always held that the path of our business is intertwined in our personal journeys. The reality is that in a sense, the inspiration for evo existed long before 2001. My Uncle Jack introduced me to skiing in grade school, and I’ve been doing everything that I can to participate ever since. Selling gear as a little kid provided the means to buy lift tickets and access this amazing experience, and for over 30 years now, evo really has been a story of one thing leads to another. From hustling to buy a lift ticket, to eventually getting the chance to chase winters worldwide, evo has opened doors to a world of sport and culture that I could have never imagined. As we move ahead, the desire to share that same experience drives our site, our stores and most of all, our evoTrip adventure travel vacations – our opportunity to introduce customers to these amazing sports and culture experiences around the world.
