Testing out gravity in Jackson Hole... it still works.
  • Bernard Patsky

    I grew up skiing in the East Coast, a.k.a the Ice Coast, and somehow still love the sport more than anything. Growing up on the ice has taught me to understand my gear to keep me safe all-day until Aprés. As an avid skiier all through university, I was lucky enough to experience the incredible community of the Ski and Board Club. The Club introduced me to a life-long community of shredders with whom I trade my ski knowledge in exchange for their favorite stashes on the mountains.

    Off the slopes I cook, hike, and read to pass the days until I'm back on the snow covered mountains.

    I would love to share this passion and my knowledge with you, so let's get you on the best gear possible and send you off to the mountains with a smile! :)

    Bernard is the expert!
    Bernard was extremely friendly and knowledgeable to all of my questions from the get go. He took my preferences into account and created an expert list of recommendations three separate times to help me find the perfect jacket, even during Thanksgiving time. On top of that he also helped me to find the best deals during the Cyber Monday sale!

    Bernard is super helpful!
    Bernard was super helpful helping me pick the right size skis and boots! He helped me figure out what gear was best for my skill level and where I will be skiing. He also gave great recommendations for a ski bag to travel with. Will be using Curated and Bernard again for my future sporting gear needs!

    Amazing Customer Service and Great Deal
    Bernard was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful when it came to deciding what skis and boots to get. I am very indecisive and he was patient with me throughout the whole process, suggested many alternatives as I tried to make a decision and helped me get an amazing deal. Highly recommend him and will absolutely come back to him for any and all future purchases!

    Jim's experience with Bernard
    I am an advanced (in age and ability!) skier. I have gear that was from earlier this century. Bernard was great in helping me upgrade my skis. Gave me some viable options and I purchased a pair of Salomon QST 92's based on my back and forth with him. Highly recommend him for anyone looking for ski equipment.

    Bernard knows how to find your gear
    I really don’t know anything about skis (I snowboard) but I wanted to get my wife set up with a nice set of skis. If I had to assume what the average gear curating experience is, I think it would mostly be about price. Bernard asked way more in-depth questions about my wife’s current skill level, desire to improve, the snow conditions she’s struggled on and what those skis were, type of snow and mountain conditions she wants to ride, etc. He even worked to ensure we got a really great looking ski and that the bindings and poles would look good! Overall I think Bernard gave confident recommendations that made me feel like we were picking out good gear. That really mattered to me because snow gear is definitely an investment! We’re very excited to get out and see the new skis in action this year.

    Steven's experience with Bernard
    The gear experts are knowledgeable and listen to skill level, price range, and favorite terrain. I used curated to get myself a snowboard for the first time in years and had no idea what was on the market. Got a board I love so came back this year to buy my wife skis and was extra lost. Bernard asked about her skill, desire to grow in skill, favorite terrain, previously rented skis, price range, color preference, and more! In the end she is going to have an awesome setup and we’re excited to put it to use!

    Bernard was great
    I had several questions for Bernard about skis, bindings & touring skins. He took the time and provide several choices, with detailed explanation about each item. I ultimately did not pull the trigger on the ski's or bindings, only because of budget reasons. I did go with a pair of skins! Not the ones he recommended, only because I waited too long and they were sold out! But the ones that were available were from same company he recommended, and they look to be just the next level down. Bottom line is I really appreciated his expertise!

    Great advice on ski!
    I was going to buy 95 width ski for the occasional off-piste skiing and regular on-piste days, but Bernard explained me that the northeast terrain needs 80-85 waist width, and you can do occasional off-piste days on this without a problem. I think I got the right advice, else I'd have ended up with the incorrect skis.

    Fei's experience with Bernard
    Bernard is super knowledgeable and easy to work with! He made a video explaining each of the options he chose for me and why- that made me feel super at ease and confident going with the choices he recommended. Great experience overall, just recommended him to my family and friends for advice too :)

    Bernard is awesome!
    Bernard made this process quick, informative and fun! This was my fist purchase for new skis and was a little unsure what was best to take myself from beginner to intermediate and Bernard talked me through it and gave me two options that were exactly what I was looking for/needed! Very quick to respond and follow up, he made this a fun and informative experience!
