Answer a few quick questions to get started with Daryl
  • Daryl Morrison

    I’m a former alpine racer of 12 years. Once I was finished competing and had started college, I tried out for and joined the Middlebury Snow Bowl ski patrol where I worked and volunteered for the entirety of my college career. When I finished college, I stayed on with the patrol for a season to work as the assistant director.

    After transitioning out of the racing world, I started to alpine tour and got more interested in backcountry skiing. Now, I am making another transition in to the big mountain category. I have dabbled in park skiing over the years since I decided to quit racing and am continuing to learn more tricks and develop my air awareness.

    I’ve spent most of my life skiing on the east coast but lived in Colorado for five years and competed there for alpine racing. I now live in Salt Lake City where I continue to explore the mountains and ski as much as I possibly can! I plan to start competing for big mountain next winter here in Utah!

    Outside of the world of skiing, I work full time as a research scientist studying Kindey Disease. I am taking some time to do research and ski before I head back to grad school to pursue an MD/PhD dual degree (hopefully here in Utah!).

    My diverse skiing background has allowed me to put numerous brands to the test to find the equipment that will both stand the test of time and provide the best ride possible for a wide variety of skiing types!

    That was great
    Knowledge base was great, response was great. It was all great. What impressed me the most was Daryl’s interest in digging a little deeper. I really didn’t care if I had this years model ski or not and she showed me last years version at a considerable savings over the current years ski. Thanks for looking out for my pocket book. I never felt like I was “being sold” something. Thanks for the great experience. I re omens Daryl highly.

    Amazing Service from Daryl!
    So I’m new to the ski world. I have been snowboarding for 25 years and I decided to transition to Skiing because I have 2 young kids who are getting into skiing. I was completely overwhelmed with how many types of skis and boots were out there. I did a ton of research but still wasn’t sure if I was getting the best deal. THEN I MET DARYL! Let me tell you, she was Amazing! She texted back and forth with me for over 24 hours on separate sides of the country To help me get myself and my family fitted with Skis, boots, poles and helmets! All at a really good price! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND DARYL to assist anyone with ski questions from beginners to experts! Truly the definition of great customer service!

    Using Curated will make it snow.
    I have been skiing for 30+ years but recently decided to expand into Alpine Touring. Also living in a small wanna be city in Alaska, my selections are limited. I was overwhelmed with what to buy, especially online with no advise or direction in a new sport I know little about. Daryl Morrison was super helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I recommend Curated and Daryl to anyone looking for some new ski gear. Can’t wait to climb and ride on my new sticks!! (On a side note, it literally started snowing out of nowhere the second I put my order in. ❄️❄️ Coincidence? Maybe. But if you’re a true snow addict, you’ll try anything.)

    Very Helpful & Patient
    Started my search for new skis with the help of Daryl. 4 hrs later I decided to pull the trigger on one of the selections she made based on my skier profile. She was very helpful, knowledgeable and extremely patient. Would recommend her for anyone who's looking for new skis but not sure where to begin. Great experience overall.

    Daryl was excellent!
    I felt like Daryl really took the time to get to know me and the type of skier I was. She was relatable and super knowledgeable. It felt like she really wanted to help me find the right gear for me at a great deal. Never did I feel like she was pushing product, and she was always there to answer my questions.

    Daryl is a kind, patient, knowledgable pro!
    Daryl helped me find ski equipment for my son and me. She offered solid advice and didn’t try to talk me into anything I didn’t need. Daryl has an easy way of communicating but also will give straightforward advice when needed. I will be a customer of Daryl’s again for sure!

    Great salesman for a picky buyer
    Daryl was a great help in finding the right skis for me. As being a “picky” buyer, she was patient and informative and really understood what I wanted more than I knew myself. She gave me lots of choices but I learned that her first pick was the right pick. Very good!

    Go Daryl!
    Was purchasing bindings with zero knowledge of how to go about it. Daryl helped me through the process explaining things like brake widths and so on - super helpful!
