Ski Expert Kevin Browder
  • Kevin Browder

    I recently graduated from Montana State in Bozeman, Montana with a degree in computer science and business. I am currently working as a ski instructor at Big Sky. I have been skiing in the mountains of Montana and Idaho my whole life, and I spend most of my time in the backcountry and always enjoy a bit of snow science. I also love ripping Bridger Bowl and Big Sky. In the summer, you can find me climbing, running or bagging peaks.

    I'm a skier first!

    What do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm a skier and ski expert, not a sales guy! I know this market well, and will always look out for your riding season and your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that's better for you! Just keep me in the loop!

    Hit all the marks
    Kevin was quick, responsive, knowledgeable, and got me a good deal. I especially appreciated his “why I chose it” descriptions which showed that he understood what I wanted by not only listening to me but intuiting where I was at, then meeting me there with his recommendations. Best experience I’ve had on Curated to date after working with a handful of good curators but never quite getting there!

    Expertise, Selection, Competitive price
    My experience with Kevin was like shopping at my local small ski shop except I was able to do it from the comfort of my home, with a much larger selection, and a much more competitive price. Kevin was able to make recommendations based off the gear I already owned and adjust the recommendation quickly based off the real time feedback I was giving him with no limitations based of brand or other random preferences (I wanted white bindings because black on black on black is boring). I felt like I was taken care of by an expert who had an inventory that was unmatched. And once again, I didn't have to leave my couch.

    Thomas's experience with Kevin
    I wasn’t sure on some of the terminology which swayed my perception of what options were being sent to me. It made me miss out on a preferred ski at Currated and bought them elsewhere. “Freeride” I thought meant like free style not like out of bounds. . .

    Great experience working with Kevin
    Kevin did a great job choosing skis, poles, boots, and bindings for me. I'm newer to the sport, so I really appreciated his notes on each piece of equipment and why he thought it would be a good pick for me. I would highly recommend Kevin - he is definitely very knowledgable about skis.

    Kevin was Fantastic
    Kevin was super friendly and easy to chat with. He was very responsive and knew/understood what I was looking for. The picks he chose were all skis I had looked at before and then he included some new ideas. He was also very knowledgeable with all my questions. Great experience overall. Would highly recommend!

    Thanks Kevin!
    It was finally time to purchase gear of my own instead of renting. Kevin was knowledgeable and friendly and gave me specific recommendations based on my questions and desires. I really appreciate his help.
