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 Kidney 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!

    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.

    Found a great deal on skis, overall great experience
    I was just barely starting to look at buying new skis for the season. My friend referred me to curated (specifically to Daryl) telling me of her positive experience. My friend was right, Daryl is great! She found a really good deal on a ski/binding combo, which I am so excited to try out! She was very knowledgeable and helpful. Also very patient (I took my sweet time debating if I really "needed" these new skis). Thanks Daryl!

    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.)

    Knowledgeable, patient, and truly helpful
    Daryl is really rad. She clearly knows her stuff when it comes to gear. I certainly took my sweet time choosing a shell that worked for me, but Daryl remained patient the whole time. It was a really awesome experience to be able to ask so many question and get so many genuine answers.

    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.
