  • Robert Funk

    Competitor with the CU Freeskiing Team and lifelong ski enthusiast. Born and raised on East Coast skiing, I eventually moved to Colorado to attend the Unversity of Colorado and to see what big mountain skiing was all about.

    While at the University I joined CU's Freeskiing team and have competed in various events across the Western U.S.. Nothing gives me more joy than skiing technical lines in the deep snow of the Rocky Mountains! Traveling and skiing some of the best big mountain terrain has given me a deep appreciation for what the right gear can do to improve anyones ability.

    My favorite mountain is Jackson Hole in Wyoming, but every day that I get to spend on snow is special no matter where I am.

    Would never have found this ski without Robert
    I've done lots of research and agonized over which ski I should buy. Robert recommended 3 or 4 different ones that he thought would be best suited to my ability and needs. To be honest, I did say I wasn't likely going to buy skis online, and I really just needed some assistance with my choices. He was so super helpful. I ended up purchasing one of his picks for me: Black Crow Vertis Birdie - which I had never come across in my research. After skiing on them for the last two days, I am so so so happy with them. Without Robert's expertise and advice, I would never have found the perfect ski for me. Thank you Robert!

    Outstanding Customer Service
    Robert went above and beyond, over a period of 2 days, answering a myriad of questions I had about picking the right skis, boots, and bindings. I submitted my final purchase with great confidence and zero apprehension because of his input, and I look forward to working with him again as i make additional purchases on curated.com. I also really appreciate the fact that he helped me out with a promo code so that i could stay within my budget. Thank you Robert!

    Robert is amazing !
    He was incredibly attentive. He is extremely knowledgable but provided great advice that got right to the point and this make the decision making efficient. He also was never pushy. He checked in regularly as I was pondering my options and always made sure he was available for questions. I felt like he was available as a resource and not as a salesman.

    Robert was great! He was very knowledgeable and gave me good information in order for me to make a decision on which skis to buy. He gave me several options for my budget, typical ski conditions, and type of skiing I was going to do. I will be using him again on my next purchase!

    I wasn’t planning on buying skis I was just looking to peruse but after my experience with Robert I decided to just go ahead and bite the bullet and get some new ones. All in all a great buying experience.
