Ski Expert Erika K
A little steep!
  • Erika K

    I started skiing shorty after I learned how to walk. Soon after that I discovered I really loved speed and fell in love with ski racing. I traveled throughout much of the US during my youth racing and training and spent many summers training at Mt Hood. I lived in Telluride for awhile post college & I continue to spend a few weeks out in CO every winter with my husband and 2 boys. It has been excited to teach them how to ski over the years and watch them advance and also develop a passion for alpine ski racing!

    Whether I'm on my telemark, alpine, touring or nordic setup I love making turns in all kinds of conditions. You'll often see me either free skiing or volunteering at our boy's ski races all around the Midwest & CO.

    Before working as a ski expert at Curated I worked in corporate America for a few decades in a variety of different sales roles. I also currently work for our local resort as the Alpine Race Program Development Coordinator.

    During the off season I'm an avid golfer, mountain and road biker, trail runner, water skier, upland bird hunter and I spend as much time as possible co-captaining our boat around the Great Lakes with my family.

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

    The BEST!
    Erika was awesome! She was super knowledgeable and had full detailed answers to every question I had. She gave me great recommendations with options but didn't overwhelm me or pressure me. She is very personable and I wouldn't have wanted to work with anyone else! Thank you Erika!

    Genius level knowledge, master level help
    I have spent over a year looking at skis. Erika was BEYOND patient, and was always willing to help me. Even when I changed what my goals were and what I was looking for, she kept pace and didn’t miss a beat. She has so much personal experience and I can tell she enjoys sharing that and helping others. She is awesome.

    Awesome Expert
    Can’t say enough about, Erika. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. She helped my secure my first pair of ski boots. Couldn’t be happier with her help! I’d recommend her to anybody looking for help purchasing the right gear and equipment.

    Erika CRUSHED it!
    Erika helped me go from never owning a pair of skis in my life, to helping me find the perfect set as well as bindings and poles. I felt very secure in her knowledge of all things related to skiing and know that whatever she recommends I should get. And that’s exactly what I do. Thanks again Erika. Can’t wait to get to the slopes this year.

    Since Erika has helped me before this year, she has a lot of useful context when she makes a recommendation—I can tell that she’s really thinking about me specifically when she asks a question or suggests an item! A great experience!

    Erika was awesome!
    I connected with Erika over a year ago and I was very happy she followed up with me this season. I must of had a hundred questions but she was more than patient with me and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I can't thank her enough for her help and kindness and I'm looking forward to skiing on new skis from her recommendation. I 100% recommend her. She is awesome!

    Erika helped me figure out my first pair of boots, skis, and bindings. I have been skiing for a few seasons but really had no idea what I was even looking for (or even how to describe what I wanted/needed). Erika took my information on how and what I ski and made some great recommendations on gear to take me to the next level. It was a great shopping experience and I can't wait to get my stuff. I highly recommend using Erika.
