Ski Expert Riley Weathers
  • Riley Weathers

    I have been a life long skiing fanatic and worked in the winter sports industry for 20 years. I started as a ski and snowboard instructor and later started working in ski shops. When I first started on the retail side of things I started as a back room tech, moved on to retail sales, became a Master Boot fitter, and managed ski shops. I obtained a certificate in the Dark Arts of Boot fitting from Master Fit University upon completion of their 60+ hours of course work and have 10+ years of boot fitting experience with continued education. I have worked directly with many winter sports brands and have built a great wealth of knowledge with the all different types of gear that are available, from skis, boots, bindings and accessories. I have been fortunate to learn all aspects of gear from many different points of view, from on hill performance, backroom teching and out of the box performance. I'm always down to talk gear so if you have any questions I'm your guy!

    Riley was a godsend!
    I was so overwhelmed looking to set up my whole family (husband, me, 5 and 3 year old girls). He was exceedingly patient with my 374748 questions and gave us really amazing advice. He also was somehow responding pretty much all day and even made personalized videos helping explain why he was recommending what he was. I felt so much more confident making our purchases. THANK YOU!!!!

    Terri's experience with Riley
    My ski expert Riley was very knowledgeable and helpful in assisting me with figuring out which skis and bindings to buy. I appreciated that consideration was taken for my level of skiing as well as the budget I had for buying new equipment. So many large sports retailers just want to sell you their excess stock or most expensive ski. Overall very pleased with my first experience buying from Curated.

    Riley responded to all my texts immediately. He is helpful and honest.
    Riley compiled a very good selection of skis to my needs. I’m beginner/intermediate. Buying my very first pair of skis within a budget. My husband found one that was not in Riley’s inventory to sell. He told me to buy the one my husband found as they are very good. I’m so impressed with his honesty. Proves Riley has your best in mind when he works with you.

    Riley was a huge help!
    Riley asked good questions regarding where I normally ski, my experience, etc. He answered all my questions about the skis, boots and bindings to the point I feel very good about my decision to buy. Actually, I can't believe I'm buying with out wearing the boots first but that's how confident I am about Riley's recommendations. I know I can return them if they don't feel right but I'd be very surprised if they don't. Thanks for your help Riley!

    Riley was amazing!
    Riley gave me great recommendations. He gave me multiple options for the kind of ski I was looking for based on different things I wanted. When I brought up looking for a binding that was cheaper than his recommendations, he was able to give me a deal on a recommendation we both thought would be good for me! Very helpful, and hospitable in his getting to know you and how you ski. Was so great working with him!

    Riley is a rockstar. He was always prompt and genuine with his support / answers and never lost patience despite he asking him soooo many questions. I think he held my hand to help me buy the right ski equipment for me, and i truly appreciate that

    Amazing experience - spot on recommendations and high level of expertise
    Riley was awesome. I just got back into skiing after a 15 year break. I needed all new equipment as my old Atomic 918's were outdated from a tech perspective and so were my boots. I was looking at reviews online and, by chance, found Curated. Riley asked me questions to get to know my skiing style, where I would be skiing, price range, prefernces, and even foot width, etc. to find me the right equipment. I ended up buying skis, boots, and bindings on the same day as I felt so comfortable with Riley. And, knowing that I was getting the best price online made me feel even better about my purchase. Riley set me up in skis/bindings/boots that I'm going to absolutely love as I ski locally in PA and when I go out West this coming Winter/Spring! In addition, Riley has been extremely responsive and patient - answering all of my questions. I still need a helmet so Riley is working with me on that as well. I'll be coming back for everything I need. He's my ski expert and I appreciate him so much. I was dreading finding the right ski equipment with so many reviews out there, but he made it simple and explained his reasoning for his picks for me. Thanks, Riley!

    Quick, easy, simple!
    I’ve skied a while but never invested in my own skis and didn’t have a lot of time to research or be sure in what I was getting. Riley made it super simple, answered any questions and made this by far the easiest it could’ve been.
