    What's up??? I hope you're as stoked for this season as I am!! I'm a former ski patroller in Colorado, but I took a step back from that this season so I can focus more on Curated and helping as many people find the perfect gear for them. However, I grew up as far away from the mountains as possible :( and it wasn't until I joined the military that I tried my hand at snowboarding while stationed in California. After mastering that ;) I moved on to skiing. I've been privileged enough to be able to ski/ride in 7 different states, 27 different resorts and average 100+ days a season.

    I hope that I can share my passion with you and we can work together to find the perfect fit for you!

    So stoked — thanks Allie!
    Second time buying with Curated and super pleased with the experience. Allie was not only helpful in finding a new pair of skis, but also knowledgeable about the pair these would be replacing — so she understood completely what I was looking for and why I’d be ready for a new pair. I did a lot of research after she recommended the Nordica Unleashed 98 and found her rec to be well backed up by the experience of a lot of other skiers. 10/10 recommend

    10/10 would recommend shopping with Allie!
    Having Allie as my ski expert has been great. She is always quick to respond whenever I have a question (always faster than I would expect). Allie never made me feel like any question was a bad one and was able to help me get a deal on a new set up that I am stoked for! Will always come back to her when I need anything.

    Allie rules!!
    I shared this with her, but Allie literally made this the best online ordering experience that I've ever had. My dumbass accidentally ordered the wrong-length poles (and I wouldn't have realized this had I not gotten a super friendly email from her, verifying my oder). Once I realized my blunder, I reached out and she immediately responded. She got me caught up to speed and helped me out with finding the perfect set. She's also definitely converted me to a returning Curated customer over some of the other big dawgs. Thanks again!!

    Awesome service!
    I hate going to the store these days, especially to buy something is specialized a ski gear. I find the staff usually have not demoed the product Or they are completely unhelpful all together and know nothing about what you were buying. Not leaving the house and having someone very knowledgeable is amazing!! Thanks Allie!

    Allie makes the process of finding the right gear wicked easy and enjoyable. She works with you to find the right fit for your skill level and area! Definitely setting the rest of the family up with Allie for their gear! I will be coming back to her for sure when its time for another set up!

    Allie was so helpful!
    Ive been skiing most of my life but still consider myself an intermediate / cautious skier. I ski enough each year that I finally wanted to buy some and had no idea where to start. Allie helped narrow my search down by asking questions that pertained to what skis I've used before and what kind of skiing i like to do (nice controlled turns, no tricks or slippery skiing) - and she helped me find my skis for the price i wanted! Excited to try them out!

    Allie knows her stuff
    Very appreciative of the fact that Allie has first-hand experience doing the same type of skiing I am looking to get into (touring) and has used most all of the equipment I was asking about specifically. She asked a lot of questions, gave honest opinions, and helped me figure out what kind of setup would be best. It also helps that she skis in the same area as me! Highly recommend.

    Allie is great!
    Allie helped me decide on a new pair of skis. I had a few in mind and with her knowledge she was able to narrow it down to one pair - the Faction Prodigy 3s. She was very responsive and offered a ton of information not only about skis but bindings and boots as well.

    Allie gave me confidence to buy.
    In talking to Allie I felt really confident in her knowledge and her recommendations. She addressed my concerns easily and quickly. I really loved the experience and now I have the new skis and bindings I needed.

    Unequivocally Knowledgeable and Personable
    Allie helped me not once, but twice! She stayed amazingly patient through all of my questions, going above and beyond with knowledgeable answers to them. She was super responsive, sending back and forth almost 100 messages in a day to make sure I was all set. I can't recommend her enough!
