Ski Expert Erika K
A little steep!
  • Erika K

    My parents introduced me to alpine skiing at the age of six and shortly thereafter I embraced a love for speed and ski racing. I traveled throughout much of the US during my youth racing and training and was fortunate enough to spend many summers training at Mt Hood in Oregon. I lived in Telluride post college where I fell in love with telemarking and this is a a dicipline I still prefer to this day! I continue to spend a few weeks out in CO & Utah every winter with my husband and 2 boys who now love to ski race and rip all over the mountain. It's only a matter of time before I'll be chasing them down the slopes!

    Whether I'm on my AT, alpine, telemark or skate ski (nordic) setup I love making turns in all kinds of resort and off piste conditions. You'll often see me either free skiing or volunteering at our boy's ski races at our local resort just 20 minutes from our house.

    I have a huge passion for sharing the knowledge I've gained over 3.5 decades of shredding turns. I enjoy talking to people who share the same passion for the sport I LOVE so much!

    Erika was fantastic to work with!
    Erika was referred to me by my brother, and she did not disappoint. She was responsive, and worked with me throughout the day, into the evening to be sure that I got what I was looking for in a ski package. In the end, Erika helped to curate the best package of skis, bindings, boots, and poles to gift to my husband for his 40th birthday. Thank you Erik for all of your help, and for saving me hours of research, and hundreds of dollars!

    Incredibly personalized service!!! Far exceeded my expectations.
    Excellent & incredibly personalized service! Good, personalized service can be hard to come by these days, and Erika FAR exceeded my expectations! She went above and beyond to move at my pace, took the time to ask the right questions and get to know my needs, and offered expert and personalized help every step of the way. She was proactive, personable, patient, responsive, and very knowledgeable about the products and the process. Her suggestions were just right and all within my budget too. A free expert/personal shopper from the comfort of your own home- who could ask for anything better? Cannot wait to get out on my new skis! Thanks Erika!!

    So happy to have hooked up with Erika! I need new skis and was having trouble finding them locally . She knew my skill level and paired me with the skis I was looking for within minutes. They shipped in less than 24 hours and will be here in a couple days. The entire experience has been top notch. Thanks Erika!!

    Jonathan's experience with Erika
    Erika and the Curated experience exceeded all my expectations. Reminds me of one of those monster ski shops in Denver where the wall of skis goes on forever and the sales person locks into exactly what you’re looking for without pushing you to higher priced models

    Exceeded expectations
    Working with Erika reminded me of going to one of those enormous shops in Denver with 100 yd wall of skis and working with someone who knows exactly what you're looking for. Erika also has that level of professionalism which I call "ownership."
