Assessing Backcountry Conditions
  • Jeff Thomson

    Born and raised in Clarkston, MI I found my passion for skiing at Pine Knob. It was a small hill that pushed me to try everything on skis. From racing, to freestyle, to instructing, to coaching, I was absolutley hooked on the sport.

    After college I made the move to Eagle County, CO. My love for skiing grew and I was able to grow as a student of the sport. I took up ski touring and discovered the backcountry which opened new doors and spawned new friendships.

    I love helping people get into skiing so there are more friends out there on the mountain! They always say there are no friends on a powder day, but I believe those are the days that need to be shared. So, let's get ya on some fresh planks so we can build up this skiing community!

    Jeff was , as my kids would say, literally amazing!
    I have never had a better experience ordering something in my life. After helping forever and deciding on something I realized I wouldn’t get what I ordered on time. Jeff contacted customer service and the skis were soon on my doorstep. I cannot rave enough about this experience. I will use them for everything!

    Rod's experience with Jeff
    Curated and Jeff were amazing. I haven't purchased new skis in over a decade and was unsure of the new tech. Jeff walked me through everything, was very patient and asked a ton of great questions to match me with some new gear...AND IT IS PERFECT. Hope to get a chance to take some turns with Jeff in the near future. THANK YOU.

He was very responsive to my many questions, and with his knowledge I know I got the right gear for this season and the future. I highly recommend Jeff

    Jeff is amazing
    Super impressed by Jeff Thomson. He's incredibly knowledgable about every type of ski even skis Curated doesn't typically sell (like Stockli), boot, binding, etc. He was also incredibly patient with all my questions and answered each one in detail and without ever seeming even slightly annoyed by my inquisitiveness. He clearly loves skiing and that came across in our chat, which took place over 2 days. He never pressured me and was gracious even when I found a better deal on another site. I highly recommend him. You won't get better advice from a nicer guy anywhere else!

    Jeff knows his stuff
    Buying new gear can be overwhelming, because there are so many options and you really can’t test all of them before buying. I told Jeff what worked for me in the past, what terrain I liked skiing, and he was able to offer specific suggestions and explains the different features of each piece of gear. I’m super happy with the guidance I received. Top notch customer service!
