    Helped us noobs feel confident
    My wife is new to skiing and I'm a snowboarder so we don't really know where to start with buying skis. She's used rentals before so she knows what's working and what isn't. Leo cut through the myriad of options to give us just what we need and at an excellent price! We feel a lot more confident in our purchase process now. Thanks!

    Knowledgable, helpful, and personable!
    Leo and all of my experience on Curated has helped me so much! I began with googling websites for skis and found Curated not knowing what to expect. After the quick quiz for ski preferences, I was matched with Leo as my Curated expert and I am so glad he was my expert! Leo took the time to research multiple brands of ladies' All Mountain skis + bindings that he believed would be a good fit for me and recorded an informative and lively video going over it all, with some fun anecdotes too. It was novel and interesting for me to learn more about the ski specs. A lot has changed in the time since I have owned my very old, original pair of skis, so it was great to have Leo's help and expert opinion. Leo helped me work out which bindings would work and look best with the skis I chose. Leo has also been great about following up with shipping and delivery updates, and he also hooked me up with some generous store credits that I was able to put towards a new pair of goggles as well. One of my favorite parts about this experience was how easy and effective Leo made it for me to select my gear. I live several hours away from the nearest ski areas and do not have a lot of access to stores that sell skis or other gear. So I loved having Leo as my expert and using Curated's features to help me figure out the type and size of skis that would be best for me. I cannot wait to try everything out next ski season during vacation time! I highly recommend Leo as a Curated expert to anyone who wants to purchase winter sports gear! Thanks a lot!

    White glove ski recommendations
    Leo took some messages on a whim while I was taking a break from skiing this weekend. He was immediately available (even being away from his home office) and he took the time to get a complete picture of my quiver, my preferences, and fill in some knowledge gaps. He recorded a video on the spot with his personal thoughts on each recommendation and gave me something to listen to on the drive home. Can't recommend Leo enough.

    My personal experience, Leo is the BEST REP in the company!
    This experience was so incredible! Initially the survey threw me off guard, as sometimes you fill those out and they don’t really help. NOPE! This survey and additional info I provided over messages allowed Leo not only to exceed my expectations but literally blow me out of the water with recommendations and suggestions. This service is revolutionary and allowed me to get all the gear I needed that was personalized to me. I’m going to recommend this service to everyone I know

    Service and Expert Guidance from Leo at Curated.com
    I recently embarked on my journey to purchase my first ski gear and had the pleasure of being assisted by Leo from Curated.com. From the start, Leo's expertise and professionalism shone through, making the entire process enjoyable and hassle-free. Leo took the time to understand my experience level and the type of terrain I usually ski on. Based on this information, he carefully curated a selection of skis, boots, bindings, and poles tailored to my needs. What impressed me the most was his in-depth knowledge of each item, as well as his ability to explain the differences between various ski profiles, materials, and features in a way that was easy for a beginner like myself to understand. Throughout the process, Leo patiently answered all my questions and offered valuable advice on how to choose the right gear. He also ensured I was comfortable with the fit of my ski boots and educated me on how to properly adjust and test the bindings. Leo even shared some helpful maintenance tips and recommendations to prolong the life of my gear. In addition to his technical expertise, Leo's genuine passion for skiing and commitment to customer satisfaction truly set him apart. His warm and friendly demeanor made me feel at ease, and I appreciated his honest opinions when it came to making the best choices for my needs. I am thrilled with my new ski gear and have Leo to thank for his exceptional service. I would highly recommend reaching out to Leo at Curated.com for anyone looking to purchase ski equipment, whether they are beginners or seasoned pros. His expert guidance and unwavering dedication to helping customers find the perfect gear are unmatched. Thank you, Leo, for making my first ski gear purchase a memorable and enjoyable experience!

I 10000% recommend Leo as he makes sure I get the best deals, answers all my questions, and he is an amazing expert:) from understanding my goals and needs, to helping me pick out boots, poles, and skis. He never rushed or pushed me, and helped me for weeks as I asked questions and found what options were right for me!

    Leo is Amazing!
    I came to curated just to start shopping around, not even fully expecting to buy anything at this point. When Leo curated a list of skis for me, I knew that this was the best choice for me so that I could actually improve my skiing abilities. Not sure how, but he even picked all skis that fit my aesthetic without any instruction by me. The skis that I eventually picked have helped my abilities so much already and I’m skiing runs that I only dreamed of last year. Never in the process did Leo push me to buy things I didn’t need or didn’t want, which made me feel comfortable and heard!

    Leo was great to work with!
    I was looking to buy a whole ski setup, skis, bindings, boots, and poles before the ski season. When I first started looking, I soon decided to just rent for the season since I was new to skiing. Leo was great about that and let me know he was willing to help again once I was looking to buy! So fast-forward to spring of the ski season, I decided I wanted to buy skis, bindings, and poles, and Leo had checked in with me to see if I was looking to buy, so the timing was good. I’d ended up buying my boots in-person since I got custom work done. But that started my journey in researching and demoing skis. Leo gave great suggestions on gear with clear explanations. I went down a rabbit hole of looking into skis and kept changing my mind about so many things, and Leo handled it wonderfully! He always gave his feedback and gave clear reasons for his thoughts. His responses were very fast, which was amazing! He was also very understanding about skis being a personal decision, so can work differently for different people, so was supportive of my thoughts. Despite all my indecisiveness he was always positive and making sure he was helping me to the best of his ability. He always checked in and asked if there was anything he could help with. Ultimately, once I finally decided on a pair of skis and bindings, he was able to give me a great deal! I am so excited to get my new skis and get skiing on them during the rest of this awesome, long ski season!

    Leo was the MOST helpful
    I can't recommend Leo and curated enough. My first ski purchase, I didn't know what I needed. Leo gave me some amazing options and confidence in my choices. They were friendly and personable, and I learned new things! AND they price matched my ski's and got me an epic deal, which ultimately lead me to adding on a new jacket to my order! Thank you Leo!
