    Although I'm originally from Charlotte, NC, as a kid I would come out to Steamboat Springs, CO to visit my aunt and uncle. I put on my first pair of skis at the age of 5 and have been hooked on the sport ever since. I've spent almost every winter out in the mountains of Colorado and Utah skiing and snowboarding, and I have yet to feel even the slightest touch of boredom.

    After graduating college in New York I was fortunate enough to move out West and be in the mountains full time! Now each winter I'm faced with the daunting task of deciding how to spend my time between skiing, snowboarding, ice climbing, and venturing out into the backcountry.

    During an average winter I'd say I spend the time on my skis split 50/50 between the resort and backcountry. I love skiing with family and friends out on the resorts, but there's nothing quite like skinning up a ridgeline to ski a line that nobody has ever ridden before!

    Apart from the actual skiing, the thing I enjoy most about the sport is the gear! I love being a gearhead and researching the lastest and greatest that the outdoor sports industry has to offer. Great gear can be the difference between a good day in the mountains and a day that you'll remember for years to come. I truly believe in the look good, feel good, play good mentality and with that I look forward to helping you find the right gear for your next adventure!

    Super Knowledgeable and attentive
    Jay was super attentive throughout my entire ski shopping experience. He was very knowledgeable and also mindful of what I was looking for and my budget. He came up with multiple options, continually updated options, and provided great feedback on why certain products would be good for me. He was super friendly and approachable as I asked him questions and I would recommend him to any future ski shoppers.

    Kallie's experience with Jay
    If I could tip Jay 100% of the cost of my skis, I would!! Unfortunately I can't afford that but I had an amazing experience working with him on finding the right skis for me and I am so excited about the pair I chose!

    Thanks Jay!
    Ive been searching for a new ski setup and was overwhelmed with all the options. I stumbled upon Curated.com and Jay was there to guide me through my choices. Most importantly, I had a specific budget in mind, and Jay respected that and worked with me to find options that fit in that budget. He is very knowledgeable and his passion for the sport is very evident, I highly recommend Jay!

    Jay was really great and very patient!
    This is my first time buying new skis so I did alot of second guessing as I wanted to be 100% about my purchase. Jay was very patient with me and kept searching and advising me until we fund the perfect set of skis!
