Ski Expert Carl Beach
  • Carl Beach

    I grew up in an incredibly rural area of Wyoming (yeah, a town of about 20 people, 60 miles from the nearest move theater). After graduating high school and college, I ended up pursuing a range of jobs in various industries until settling on a career in international education. This career has allowed me to live in 7 different countries and have the ability to continue to enjoy the outdoors, particularly backcountry skiing.

    Thanks Carl!! You rock
    Carl is awesome! Would recommend to a friend. I was on a pretty tight budget and he helped me find a really great deal without having to sacrifice any of my other preferences. He was super friendly and knowledgeable and seemed genuinely interested in getting me the best pair of skis for the type of skiing I do. He asked a bunch of questions to make sure he had all the necessary information to pick the right products for me, which I appreciate. I'm confident this ski/binding setup will last me a while, but I'd definitely want Carl's advice if I'm ever looking for other equipment.

    Always trust a powder hound from WY!
    Carl really went out of his way to find me some really good deals. I was skeptical of how this whole process of trusting a website to pick me skis, but the fact that this site matches you to super knowledgeable staff like Carl here. Being a lifelong skier whos particular about my gear I would actually use this service. Plus they have some good Deals!

    Great at finding a "Fit"
    I am a professional skier who recently decided to switch to a different skiing discipline... where I am starting over relative to equipment. I can tell you that Carl knows his stuff. He is great at digging deep to find out exactly what the right fit for each skier is and for their specific needs. I could talk equipment with him all day. He can "carry" you through the process of making decisions and is full of great information. For myself, it is so, so great to know that someone is knowledgeable about telemark skiing as well! That is a rare expertise!

    Shannon's experience with Carl
    Carl gave spot on ski recommendations unbiased from any manufacturer and really took into account my skier profile (I.e. type of skier, what terrain, aggressive or beginner etc) Was responsive and helped navigate me getting my skis as fast as possible so I would have them in time for my ski trip. Even gave good sensible recommendation on good priced bindings.

    Best online customer service EVER
    I have to say I stumbled upon Curated and am gushing about it to anyone who will listen! My cross-country skiing experience has expanded with my new package of waxless...no more waxing the wood skis unless I feel a real traditional ski is needed.

    Carl is beyond helpful
    Was very pleased with Carl’s knowledge and ability to tailor to my needs . He went very in depth with explaining each ski and made understanding the technical aspects of ski profiles, something I don’t have to be so confused about.
