  • Sara Beeken

    A North Carolina transplant to Colorado, by way of South Lake Tahoe, CA! I grew up skiing and racing at Beech Mountain, NC. After studying Recreation Management at Appalachian State University and competing on the race team, I returned to Beech Mountain as a Race Coach! Within a few years, I became the Head Coach and Director of the competition team program at Beech. Looking for bigger mountains, my wife and I relocated to South Lake Tahoe where I coached the competition team at Heavenly. We lived there for three years before moving to Longmont, Colorado, where we live now and in the winters I focus on hooking people up with their perfect gear on Curated and spend lots of time skiing for fun!

    I've worked for 3 different ski shops and rental companies! I'm a total gear junkie and truly love helping people find the perfect setup! I've always been the go-to gear advisor for all of my athletes! In the summers, I am the Camp Director for the Southeastern Alpine Race Camp, in Mt. Hood, Oregon, which is a true passion of mine. We get kids from the often-overlooked ski programs in the southeastern region and create an affordable option for them to train during the summer.

    I can't wait to help you pick out the perfect setup for your unique needs so that your ski experience is the best it can be!

    Thank you Sara!
    Sara was referred to me by my partner, who could not speak more highly about her experience with Sara / Curated. 2 weeks later, I reach out to Sara for consultation. It was late at night when I did, so we had to meet at another time. I said 12 PM EST. Sara, on Mountain time, texted me right at 12 PM EST and our conversation began! She started with basic questions to understand what kind of skier I am and what I was looking for. After some back and forth, Sara came up with the perfect set of gear for me. I had a few questions, and even asked if other options were available. Sara was able to answer all of my questions, and happily (and quickly!) was able to find and suggest additional options. At the end of the day, I was able to purchase all of my gear, and under budget! Thanks Sara!

    Adam's experience with Sara
    Sara is absolutely fantastic. I wasnt sure what I was going to get for both my children. She was super helpful and walked me through the whole process. After I purchased for my kids I decided to look for a new set for myself. She was back on and helping me right away. She helped me pick out the right pair with her expertise. So excited to have 3 new sets of skis o their way and ready for the first snowfall.

    What else could you ask for?
    Knowing just about nil on ski’s Sara educated me and suggested the perfect setups. (She’s obviously done this before) I literally couldn’t have received a better experience and if you come across Sara you know you’ll be in good hands.

    Just the advice I needed!
    First, I have to say that Austin Randall helped me a ton last year figuring out what skis I wanted. Sara was super responsive in helping me figure out which length I wanted and pulling the trigger! Thanks!

    She was friendly and professional!
    Sara was very knowledgeable about skiing and what skis would be best for me. She was also so friendly and always responded quickly even when I forgot to respond to her. Great to speak with.

    I think my only fault would be the overall selection. More brands and options are always preferred :) But overall, the experience was fantastic. Sara was very helpful and I'll definitely be back again.

    Sara’s curated recommendations were spot on and gave me the confidence to purchase my first pair of skis/bindings in over 20 years… no more demos for me! Conversation via txt/ chat was pleasurable and very helpful. Will continue to consult Sara for my family’s future alpine needs.
