Kayo Ogilby grew up in Vail, Colorado. He was the son of two backcountry ski guides for the 10th Mountain Division hut system and first put on a pair of Telemark skis when he was in 6th grade. As a young person he was involved with ski racing in Vail, CO along with various backcountry excursions with his parents where his love for the outdoors grew.
