Ski Expert Matt G
Earning my turns when the lifts stop spinning
  • Matt G

    I love skiing - it’s my passion and obsession!!!

    As an adult in my 20’s, I took the uncommon route of learning to snowboard before learning to ski on a business trip to Santa Fe. I didn’t live near the mountains back then and rode as a recreational snowboarder 5-10 days per year whenever I could take a mountain vacation with my wife and/or friends. Once my kids came along and were ready to head to the mountains with us, they decided they wanted to snowboard too. However, they didn’t offer snowboard school to kids as young as mine, so they went to ski school and I went with them - I am so glad I did!!! Starting over was hard, but I love everything about skiing, especially the challenge to continuously improve on the mountain … from the steep and deep, to fast groomers and from the terrain park to tracked out icy moguls - I love it!!

    Having a family of avid skiers can get expensive, so I’m also passionate about finding the best gear at the best price. I’m also a bit (a lot) of a gear nerd and love pouring over reviews of skis and trying out new and different gear. I’m excited to be a Curated Expert so that I can share my passion and knowledge to help others pursue amazing times and awesome adventures on the mountain with the best gear for them.

    When I’m not out skiing or curating, I may be found flying the friendly skies - possibly taking you to your ski vacation destination. 😃 ✈️⛷️🏔️

    Super helpful and spreads the stoke!
    Matt has helped me pick out my last two sets of skis and bindings, which I have been super happy with. He went above and beyond to answer my million and one questions. He even steered me in a different direction than I was thinking on skis after understanding my skiing style and what I have skied in the past. I'm glad he did because I couldn't be happier with my quiver now. I could not recommend his expert advice enough!

    Matt was very responsive and very honest with what I was asking for and what he thought was the best gear for me in my price range. He was even on a trip and he was wlring with me during his travles! He worked with me a lot through different years and offered up advice even when it wasn't something I was going to buy from Curated. I really appreciate his knowledge and expertise.

    I didn’t know where to begin with purchasing my first pair of skis. I have always rented but knew I wanted to invest in a pair . Matt was wonderful at asking all the right questions and helped pair me with ski options based on my level and where I hope to be.

    He has been patient with me even though it took me a while to come to a final purchase and has been able to answer all my questions quickly. I also appreciated the fact that he tried to go with the budget that I could afford. Deserves a ton of credit!

    Amy (for Jackson)'s experience with Matt
    I’m not very knowledgeable about buying ski equipment. Matt explained my options in ways that I could understand and in a such a way that I felt comfortable With the purchase. It far exceeded my previous experiences purchasing ski equipment.

    Matt was the best
    Matt stayed up with me even though i asked him about 1000 questions, at time i thought myself was being annoying, but from matt, I never got that impression as if he thought i was being annoying. Matt was helpful in every asset of my purchase he recommended me things and went into detail with every single one which helped me narrow it down to a couple and then he helped me decide. Thanks matt.

    Rob's experience with Matt
    I was nervous about buying skis on line. Especially the boots. Matt took his time, asked a ton of questions about my skill level and skiing style. On the boots I was concerned with fit and warmth. I had always rented so I had no idea on size or fit. Matt gave me great advice (socks and fit) and options to choose from. After a week or so of my own research and back and forth with Matt I finally went with his recommended option on boots, skis and bindings. They all worked great! Feeling more confident than ever in my skiing abilities with my new gear!
