20 years Together

20 years of skiing, skating, biking, hiking, boarding, surfing, camping, and serving our community. Together. It’s been an incredible journey and we want you to know the best part. We’re not there yet. Not even close. We’re stoked you decided to share the trail with us. Cheers to 20 years and many more to come.

20 years.

It’s nearly impossible to express the feelings that I have and the many memories that race through my mind when I hear the words “twenty years,” thinking back on all that has transpired since the launch of in 2001. Many seasons have come and gone for all of us that are a part of the evo community. We’ve seen countless families emerge with evo origins (including my own). We’ve lost friends and loved ones. We’ve had the very best of times at events, at work, travelling together and outside in inspiring places. We’ve navigated some dark chapters, only hours from bankruptcy, near-miraculously making our way to the other side. And we’ve experienced extraordinary comebacks together, having had to dig deep, leaning into our Core Values and survival instincts.
Now, twenty years later, we are six hundred team members strong and counting. We have tens of thousands of volunteer hours under our belts and have impacted many thousands of children’s lives, as well as other causes that we care about. We’ve built what are the beginnings of a diverse ecosystem business, made possible by our strong, web and store retail foundation. From evoTrip to All Together Skatepark…The Journeyman Lodge in Whistler…to Campus Salt Lake…evo Hotel to evoRentals, the early pieces of the puzzle are in place as we set our sights on the future.
“The last 20 years has set us up for the next 20 years.”
evo is building a global community, a suite of experiences like no other, and a business that will positively impact human lives at a scale that is unimaginable today. We have a large vision and a solid foundation. What we have established, accomplished and experienced together, clearly speaks to where we are headed in the years to come.
Special thank you to my wife Elise, my parents Sue Nell and Jose, very close friends and supporters, Ira Gerlich and Tom and Linda Graue and my best childhood friend, Jeremiah Links. Jeremiah’s life and his ultimate passing have served as an inspiration, manifesting in our care and commitment to do everything that we can to help unlock the potential of most vulnerable kids in need.
And thank you to all who have supported us in our journey — our many team members both current and past, those that bet on us and believed that we’d build something special and of course, our community of customers, business partners and beyond. There is absolutely no way that we’d be where we are today, nor would we be poised to go where we are headed, without your belief in us and your support. We are forever grateful.
