Jo is a MyCU graduate who began a degree in Business Management before being pulled away by the beauty of nature. Quitting university after his second year, he began his journey as a buyer for an outdoor goods retailer.
Meeting various outdoorsman and adventurers in his time as a buyer, it inspired him to leave the corporate world behind. He started as a camping instructor in France, Switzerland and back home in South Africa, before beginning a career in his favourite field, skiing.
Val d’Isere in France was where Jo applied his trade for a few seasons, prior to being drawn back to Colorado and making the world famous resort of Snowmass his home base for the next few years.
Jo is still an enthusiastic instructor, however, he continues to travel the world looking for his next adventure during the warmer months. Come rain or shine, winter or summer; Jo is hands-on with everything from gear to the weather.
