Ski Expert Parker Braun
  • Parker Braun

    Being a Colorado native, skiing is basically part of my DNA. I've spent the last 16 of my 20 years skiing around the state and have always had a passion for gear. As a student at CU Boulder I get to meet a lot of skiiers in every skill range and age group and have long been the go-to guy to get gear reccomendations or opinions. Most of the people I reguarly ski with have at least three pieces of gear that I helped them pick, and I take an immense amount of pride in helping people find gear that helps them have more fun in the mountains!

    I tend to ski 50+ days a season and as a result I have a lot of experience in every condition and terrain possible. I tend to spend more time in resorts than the backcountry but will take every opportunity I can to chase steep and deep days wherever I can find them.

    Currently I ski on ON3P Jeffery 102s for my daily drivers, Moment Deathwish tours for days when I want to earn my turns, and Atomic Bentchetler 120s for those oh-so-sweet powder days.

    I am not a sales guy, I am just a ski expert who spends nearly every waking moment thinking or talking about skiing so there is no facet of this sport that I am not stoked to talk about! I am also a college student so I promise I understand the importance of balancing both budget and performance. My goal here is to foster more love for the sport that makes me happy, simple as that!

    Second Time Buying With Parker
    As the new season rolls around I was looking for a new pair of skis and went straight to Parker for advice. Couldn't be happier with my purchase and ended up paying less than anywhere else online.

    Trustworthy Curator with Amazing Recommendations
    What a surprise! I was quite skeptical of using Curated.com because of the infamous critiques this website received from 'Blister Reviews'. However, my interaction with Parker totally changed my mind. He was not only very attentive to details of my concerns but also always responded to my inquiries in such quick fashion. I cannot recommend Parker enough to everyone!

    Parker was extremely helpful and honest.
    I was actually pleasantly surprised by this interaction. I expected to interact with someone working from a script and with a limited depth of knowledge. Instead, I was happy to have a conversation with someone who spoke ‘the language’ of skiing. I have previously worked in the ski industry and still have a pretty good working knowledge of equipment, so I was pleased to have an engagement with someone who actually knew what I needed. Great job Parker!
