    Leo is Outstanding- a true Professional!
    Leo is very detail oriented, collected all necessary background information, then made great recommendations based on what would fit me the best. He was very attentive to feedback I provided based on previous equipment experiences and figured out the best gear that will last me for years to come.

    Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
    Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

    What a fantastic experience!
    Decided to invest in skis, boots, poles, bindings,... the whole shabang. Leo couldn't have been more helpful. With such different needs and interests for everyone in the fam, this seemed like a complicated task, but this ended up being my best sales/purchase experience... ever.

    Like the expert advise.
    Rarely do you get such a rapid response if they even have a true expert available to the consumer. If I didn't already have a pair of the same skis I would have definitely looked at some of his suggestions. Like that Curated has good quality merchandise and some inventory to back it up! Thanks for your help Leo and I will be sure to shop with Curated again.

    One stop for all questions
    I have been looking around the internet for answers to JR race gears for the ski cross. Leo was so helpful. He answered all my questions. The right skis, the difference between my options and the comparable equipment. and what I shall do as a ski mom in the future. Thank you so much.

    Leo FTW!
    Leo is a consummate professional with the perfect attributes of expertise, friendliness, patience, inquisitiveness, and creativity. He really took the time to get to know me, ask the right questions about my current set up, what I was looking for in stepping up to the next level without breaking the bank. We chatted for several months, and I was actually able to physically demo one of the top contenders when I was out in Utah for some final days on the mountain.

    Full of Knowledge and Expertise
    I came in with months of riding demo skis and researching online to determine what works best for me. I'm a smaller skier who was trying to get their first pair after years of rentals and demos, and Leo not only helped me find the pair of skis that would suit my style best, but answered any and all questions I had about what skis were good and why. I learned so much about ski gear, and that only helped me feel more confident in my purchase. I can't wait to try em' out on the slopes next season.
