Jackson when its deep
  • Hayden Wright

    I grew up in Alaska loving the outdoors. I became hooked on skiing at a very young age and haven't looked back. I enjoy skiing deep pillows in the backcountry and enjoying the terrain parks. I am always pushing myself to progress. I love meeting new people and am always the most stoked person in the room or the gondi. I moved to Denver, CO in 2016 and have been enjoying the Rockies ever since. I still try and get home often to enjoy the steep and deep snow in AK. I have been lucky enough to have traveled all over the world to ski!! Lets chat skis and get you dialed in for a fun winter!!

    Hayden was a great help!
    I've been skiing for years, using rentals my whole life. Coming into this, I did not have much knowledge on the measurements of what to buy and which brands were the best. Hayden was very patient with all of my questions and priced matched me accordingly. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to start buying their first skis, or looking to upgrade as he is very knowledgable in this area!

    So I guess I'll start with I live 2 hours from the nearest shop and then I'd have to pay jacked up prices just because it's Lake Placid. My current k2 Amp 80x's that I bought probably 7 years ago have finally officially become rock skis;as all good skis are apt to do. Since then I was in a car wreck that shattered (shidoobie) my pelvis and left me with a bunch of metal,14 screws,and a nail on my left side. It leaves me with a harder time to make left turns. I lack a lot of strength on that side and have to think to make turns that way. This past season 3 years post said accident I started to get back to skiing more aggressively and am back in the trees again! Because of the time it takes to process the need to turn and then get my body to engage I'm like .5-1 seconds slower to compute and complete which when in the woods can be like French frying when your supposed to pizza. I'm on 177's now and in my mind if I went shorter it would help compensate for some of that lag. Being a tall guy he made recommendations to not go much shorter than I'm at now because we talked enough for him to know that it would rob me on my primary style of bombing groomers. I was hoping to be able to go down to a 168. He reached out to another colleague to get their input and it was agreed to be too short. Which was a little sad to hear because I found a SICK deal on a pair of Nordica Dobermans I had planned to buy before I had started talking with him. I was also holding out hope that I was going to get my hands on discounted pair from a friend's uncle who works at one of the manufacturers so I hadn't fully committed to the sale yet. Few days go by and Hayden,like the great American he is as you see in his profile picture,reaches out to me to let me know that their black Friday sale has started and if I'm still interested my bride will yell at me 20% less! And now you know the story of how I got my next Rock skis

    I’ve skied my entire life and have a good knowledge of what I want and need for equipment. With that said it helps to have someone with more knowledge that can help figure out what gear works best for you. Had multiple conversations with Hayden about different equipment and he gave me good insight about strengths and weaknesses that I was potentially buying. He also helped me find information about my ski boots and fitting certain bindings that I couldn’t find anywhere else online. Highly recommend Hayden, great to work with and friendly!

    Hayden was awesome!
    Hayden took the time to listen about the gear I've used in the past. He went into great detail with his gear sections. He got me in the right set up for me. I'll with out a doubt come back to curated and use him for any future purchases. I'll be sending my friends his way too! We have a trip in January to Colorado. He will be showing us around Copper Mountain, Crested Butte and Vail we can't wait! Hit him up for gear and resort guiding!!

    As a busy mom of 3 I don’t have a ton of time to research products so appreciate that Hayden had quick and great recommendations for upgrading my helmet & goggles for the season. Hayden was responsive with questions and provided me with some great options to choose from. Thank you!

    Great discussions with Hayden
    Hayden listened, researched and then sent his gear suggestions. We then connected via teams where during a lengthy discussion we discussed his ideas and mine. From chatting with Hayden ended up with a great setup at an even better price......recommend without any hesitation getting Hayden to assist you with new ski gear

    This is my second time ever purchasing a set of skis and boots. My experience level is somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Hayden’s expertise was greatly appreciated! He was knowledgeable and responsive during our chats. I cannot wait to get my new gear! ✌🏼🎿

    Hayden was awesome!!
    Hayden worked with me for for well over 6 months to get set up with ski gear that I am absolutely stoked about! He recommended several sets of skis that I took out to demo throughout the season. I’d then check back in with him to modify suggestions until we honed in on my perfect skis- the Icelantic Maidens. I could not be more thrilled. Hayden also recommended boots and bindings, and even took it a step further when he saw I’d added a boot bag to my cart and recommended a better deal that was available. Hayden was easy and fun to chat with and super knowledgeable. As stoked as I am with my new set up, I’m sad it means I’ll no longer be exchanging messages with him. Can’t recommend Hayden or Curated enough !
