  • 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. I study Kidney Disease and renal disregulation in general. Currently I am working to develop a model for cognitive and behavioral dysregulation in flies related to uremia and renal failure! 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!

    _What do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm a ski expert, not a sales girl! I know this market extremely well, and will always look out for your ski season and your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that's better for you! _____Just keep me in the loop!

    Great Feedback
    Daryl was great to work with, she spent a great deal of time answering my questions and giving me great feedback. She was super patient with me as I took my time and did some of my own research as well once she gave me recommendations. In the end I went with what she recommended. I’m super happy with my purchase and having Daryl there to work with me and answer all my questions.

    Amazing Customer Service
    I've been skiing my entire life, but I really don't know much about the buying of equipment. It can be a super intimidating experience but Daryl made it easy and painless. She was quite knowledgeable and took the time to understand what kind of skier I am and what my goals were. We talked over many months and she never pressured me to buy anything. So happy to finally have skis that are right for me and will last me a long time.

    Daryl was so helpful!
    Daryl got me really excited to shred on some new gear! I felt really confused when I first came to her and she really helped me clear up what my preferences are and recommended gear that would be compatible with my interests. She has a ton of experience on different gear and was really able to help me out.

    An expert in all aspects of the art.
    We started talking at the end of the season, and months later she followed up with me. She was able to recommend several options and price ranges to work best with my family. She was never pushy, but very supportive. The experience was unforgettable. If needed in the future again, this is where I will go. Thank you very much.

    Fantastic Consulting Skillz
    Daryl was so great. She got me great deals and stuck within my budget. I was overwhelmed shopping by myself and she took all that away and recommended gear based on my needs and preferences. She even switched to mens skis because I liked their colors more. Excellent service. I'd highly recommend this site and expert to anyone looking to level up their ski gear!

    Awesome to work with Daryl!
    Daryl took the stress out of buying new skis and bindings. She asked the right questions and was able to provide all of her expertise to help me find the right skis for my type of skiing and the terrain that I will see. I genuinely enjoyed working with her. It was so so easy to communicate back and forth with her. I will definitely work with her again for my next purchase!

    Relatable and fun ski advice
    Daryl made recommendations based on my inputs, yes, but it was all the chatting back and forth about little details needed to make the right choice for skis. She helped me think through sizing, underfoot, and what I would get or give up performance based on my choices all stemming from her on the hill experience using the equipment. She was really the reason I purchased what I did!

    Amazing experience, knowledge and price!!!
    Daryl selected a couple of backcountry skis and bindings after identifying my ski level and goals. She gave me the pros and cons of each selected gear and why they would fit my skills and help me get to my goals! On top of that, her prices were unbeatable!! I am so glad I went with Daryl and Curated to buy my new equipment. Shipping time was very reasonable with UPS. Would recommend to anyone!

    Awesome experience!
    I was just looking for a size recommendation and ended up having a great experience! Daryl was so patient and knowledgeable. She had an answer for every question I had! After skiing on rentals that were way too small for me, I really believe she steered me in the right direction for buying my first pair of skis. Just placed my order and I can say I will definitely revisit this site when I need more gear! Thanks again!
