  • Gary Neft

    I was a ski buyer and salesperson for a chain of sporting goods stores for 10 years, used to ski almost 100 days a year before injuries hit me, moved out west recently, and now only a short drive away from great skiing here in Arizona. I have been skiing for over 50 years

    Reintroduced Me to a Brand
    Gary was awesome at finding options that matched my desired specs and budget level. I was looking for a ski that looked cool and still had good performance, and Gary found me a Rossignol pair that I would never have seen otherwise. Greatly appreciate the time and effort

    Gary was super helpful!
    He was very responsive, asked good questions, gave great recommendations, and helped me find a fantastic deal. I hope to get one of the skis he suggested but even if I can't I have a much better idea of what to look for in my gear for the future!

    Gary was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable!
    I am incredibly indecisive, especially when it comes to spending $$$, and Gary hung in there with great suggestions ultimately to lead me back to my first choice. Gary knows his skis and bindings!!

    Excellent Rec Experience A+
    I came to Curated to get some generic AI rating on 3 different skis I've been contemplating purchasing before hitting the mountain tomorrow morning (all my ski stuff was stolen 2 weeks ago...) Gary's top recommendation was the top ski I was actually debating myself recently (Rossignol BlackOps Escaper), which was great to hear. Gary is awesome and provided recommendations knowing I wouldn't be purchasing through the website. Gary was knowledgeable, friendly and was extremely helpful. Honestly, he might be my new best friend.

    Gary is the best
    I could not have asked to work with someone better for this process. I was very hesitant about ordering ski apparel online especially because they are always big purchases. Gary was so responsive and answered every single question I had. I am very particular when it comes to by new ski gear and want to get the best fit for me along with style. When it came time to check out I felt very confident with my purchase. Without Gary, I would have not been able to chose the right gear for my adventures!! Thank you Gary!

    Matthew Lange's experience with Gary
    I was paired up with Gary Neft while shopping for new skis for my oldest daughter and a new snowboard for my youngest. Gary asked me appropriate questions for fitting them and suggested great packages for my girls. I'm no expert and haven't been skiing in years so the help was most appreciated. Thanks Gary and Curated - Merry Christmas!

    I had a fantastic curated expert named Gary. I was shopping for skis for my daughter, and had no idea what to buy. Gary did a great job collecting information and matching me with great recommendations. We just received our order and my daughter loves the selections!

    Gary here will respond faster than your Significant other! I didn't wait more then 30 seconds for Gary! He helped me find the skis I wanted in under 20-30 minutes! Even went back and looked for more a few times upon request. 100% will use Gary any time I need an expert opinion.

    I received a follow up message every single time I glanced at or even thought about the package offered - night or day, holiday weekend or whatever. I am not sure if Gary really exists or is a bot. Whatever the case he was very helpful and prompt. I appreciate the help. Thank you!
