Ski Expert Robbie M
Found some good snow after a little hike on Goat's Eye Mountain at Banff Sunshine
  • Robbie M

    Engineering Supervisor by day; ski-addict by night/weekend. Skiing has taken me to Canada, Wyoming, Montana, Colorado, and Utah, and all are places I'd rather be skiing than my current location in Minnesota (which, to be honest, isn't that bad...see Marcus Caston's Minnesota Return of the Turn episode). When I'm not sending it down the Dictator Chutes or Upper Cirque out West, I'm an adaptive ski trainer and instructor in MN, which gives me an excuse to do what I love and help others to do it with me.

    I absolutely love to ski and love the skis that I use! My Line Sakanas are my daily driver when it hasn't snowed in awhile and I want to carve up groomers, and my Moment Wildcat 108s are my bomber skis for when I want to go fast and blow through variable snow conditions. My favorite hobby outside of skiing is shopping for skis but never buying them, so I'm always up-to-date with the latest releases and new technologies!

    Top notch service from Robbie
    Robbie's Minnesota friendliness shined through every message as we talked about skis, boots, and more. Winter 22/23 I'm getting back on the slopes after a life-altering injury, and Robbie's experience as an adaptive ski instructor was super helpful as well as I weighed my options. I look forward to working with Robbie on future gear searches!

    Very helpful! TY!!
    Multiple questions re "new skis" as I learned/used "Hart Competition" 180s "straight " from about 1970 to maybe 1993 (exactly?). These "carving styles" these days are a bit "frightening" for someone like myself who learned/appreciated 180 "straights.". I've been "checking out" the locals ' (in Chicago) recommendations as I've been "out of the sport"for a number of years while working as a Physician/Psychiatrist (M.D. type), plus an "horrendous Divorce Case." So I needed a bit of "critical thinking" from another individual to help me "understand" the suggestions of all varieties of "others" are quite similar. These choices are very important to myself as a critical thinker who has to "trust the other experts" in snow skiing (in order tonget back into it). TY! Very helpful.

    I’m never going to a retail store again!! Robbie was super responsive- ensured he found bindings that worked with my boots, skis that were right for my height/ski level and worked within my price range. Could not be happier with the service and to hit the mountain 🤗⛷!! Thank you Robbie!!

    Very knowledgeable
    Robbie had a very good understanding of the different types of ski's and was also able to provide really good information regarding the differences in brand and their performance. He was also able to give a really good deal on a nice beginner set of ski's. I would recommend that other people go through him for their purchases. Noah

    Outstanding help
    When curated.com popped up on my FB feed, I initially ignored it seeing it as just another FB spam/ad thing. But following several hours of research browsing countless websites, youtube videos, etc etc in trying to come up with my "ideal" set of skis, I decided to give it a try. I am very glad that I did. We started out with a text chat, but quickly moved to a POTC (plain old telephone call). Robbie listened carefully to what I was looking for, asked follow-up questions, and then selected several options and configurations. He placed them into an account for me on Curated, which was great since I could look at photos, specifications, and descriptions of the gear while we spoke. He explained to me the details and nuances of the different gear and helped me reason out the best choices. I'm very glad I took the chance on registering through this site. Would highly, highly recommend it to anyone going through a similar process. -Joseph

    A lifesaver
    I was/am clueless on what I want and need as a skier and Robbie provided excellent support in understanding my desires and transforming them into practical suggestions. He helped me over the course of a couple weeks which was very helpful as I didn't want to rush into a decision. Robbie is very knowledgeable and offered a lot of helpful insight to prevent me from purchasing anything that I wouldn't want. This was a great experience overall and I was very grateful to have someone as friendly and accommodating as Robbie! I highly recommend him for your expert.
