The Stio Home Team: Joy In Being Outside

By Stio Mountain on

When we met this summer Stio Home Team, we knew they loved being outside as much as we do—but we had no idea how powerfully their stories would drive us to seek bigger goals and deeper connections. 

You can keep up with the Home Team all season by following @stio on Instagram.

Thinking about joining? Keep an eye out for our two seasonal application periods each fall and spring. Subscribe to our email and follow us @stio so you’re the first to know when we’re looking for new additions to the Home Team!
