  • Theo G

    I'm a pro ski instructor and lifelong fan of winter. I'll ski whenever/however possible, and that obsession has given me experience with big mountain, backcountry, racing, and park disciplines. I've been on skis over 20 years, and I grew up in the Adirondacks skiing at Gore and Whiteface mountains. I moved to Maine for college, raced club, and skied all around the state. I'm now coaching and exploring in the Cottonwoods of Utah, and I'm excited to keep learning myself this season. I've spent a LOT of time using and researching ski gear, and I'm always thrilled to talk about gear and recommendations!

    sheldon's experience with Theo
    My expert was quoting to me from the Blister report. Not much real value best I could see. Your web site … in its structure to provide guidance is very cumbersome. I bought from you but in the end the only reason was the price and availability. I’ll avoid Curated unless you’re the only place with the product.

    Theo could not have been more helpful and approachable if he tried! He found exactly what I was looking for because he took the time to assess my needs. I can highly recommend Theo’s expertise and efficient service!
    Theo was helpful, responsive and had great advice. It was an easy process that saved me the time that I would have spent researching the right skis and bindings to purchase.

    Theo was very helpful. I explained to Theo my skiing style, likes/ dislikes with current skis, and what I was looking for. He provided several recommendations and we were able to fine tune his suggestions until I ultimately decided on a setup. His willingness to help and knowledge of gear was top notch.

    Theo understood what I was looking for.
    Theo was personable and understood what I was looking for. He steered me in the right direction for purchasing skis, an AT setup for inbound skiing and occasional backcountry adventure. I was feeling overwhelmed with gear choices. This platform gave me time to do my own research and think about my choice for gear. Appreciate Theo’s help.

    Theo was incredible!
    Theo was super helpful and responsive... whether at midnight or first thing in the morning. He provided great options for me to choose between that made it super easy to select my new setup. I'm very confident in my new gear! He was even able to give me local recommendations on where to get my bindings attached. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience.

    Knows his stuff and helped me feel confident in my purchase
    Theo was a real pleasure to work with! He took the time to ask the right questions, provided suggestions based on what I was looking for, and did not try to push any products upon me. I was in the market for a backcountry setup, and had done quite a bit of research before speaking with Theo. He listened to what I had been researching / wanting, and provided real expert knowledge into the decision making process. Definitely recommend him to anyone new to the ski game or experienced, that is looking for some expert advice before making their purchase.

    Theo was BRILLIANT!
    I’m 71 yrs old. Been skiing all my life but have not upgraded in years. It was all new to me: technology, fittings, you name it, I was like an uneducated blob. (Oh, and I can hardly work the internet, so I was at a great disadvantage. Theo understood, and took me through it step by step, and answered all my questions and even when I came up with a different boot suggestion, he researched it and we decided to take a slightly different approach. The guy is AMAZING. I couldn’t be happier. I have every confidence in him and if, by chance, the boot isn’t just right, he will take me through it again. I can’t say enough positive adjectives except that I’m very pleased.

    Wonderful experience
    Chatting with Theo made the ski purchasing process fun and a breeze. He is very knowledgeable, answered all my crazy questions and informed me on how the products would handle with my skill level. Finding the right ski seemed like an intimidating process and Theo helped make it not so.

    Theo was great! First time ski owner.
    As a first time ski buyer, I had little information/knowledge to go with when picking out a ski setup. Based on Theo’s recommendations, experience and no pressure attitude, I’m confident that my first set of skis will work out great! ❤️🎿⛷
