Answer a few quick questions to get started with Daryl

    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!

    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!

    Listened, Assessed, and Crushed It
    Daryl was awesome in helping me narrow down what was best for me. Being a skier herself, she had similar trials and tribulations, which was really comforting to hear. Boots have been the hardest thing for me to find and I'm really glad she was able to make the recommendation for the Dabellos. 11/10 would recommend her for future consultation.

    Best online customer service!!!
    As a beginner skier nothing’s more intimidating than trying to pick out equipment for the first time. I had always rented but felt it was time to get my own gear. Daryl was super helpful in giving me options that fit my level of experience and also finding the best deals. It took me a couple days to think over the options and she was a patient, no-pressure guide with honest and knowledgeable recommendations. Who has two thumbs and a new set of ski gear on the way? 👍🏻👍🏻 This girl!!!

    Stellar Deal on a unique setup
    I was looking for a pretty specific type of setup and to be honest didn’t expect anyone outside of some hardcore backcountry shop in Utah or Colorado to be able to help me, but Darryl pointed me in a whole new direction. She turned me onto a new binding that I hadn’t even heard of, and helped me get several hundred dollars off a new high peaks powder ski. I’m so psyched, and appreciative of her depth of expertise and the that she’s speaking as someone who really gets out on the gear. 10/10 would recommend again and will be using her help again soon to buy a new at setup for my wife.
