Ski Expert Thomas Harari
  • Thomas Harari

    I've spent the last 10 years working with college students (or being one) at Montana State University in Bozeman Montana - just minutes away from Bridger Bowl, Big Sky, and countless backcountry opportunities. With so many new students needing gear each year, I have become a go-to-guy for help buying that first pair of skis or a specific upgrade.

    I ski 100+ days each year, and have currently skied at least once per month for the past 76 months within the state of Montana. I ski a good mix of resort and backcountry - but my main goal is always to ski as much powder as possible. I spent a good amount of time in highschool snowboarding and telemarked quite a bit in college.

    Previous to working at Curated, I spent 6 years buying and selling skis on Craigslist and I have skied many of them to see what they are like. I currently have 5 skis that I ski, ranging from light touring skis to hard-charging powder skis.

    What do I need from you? Be honest with me about what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I'm a ski expert, not a sales guy! I know this market well, and will always look out for your ski season and your wallet! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that's better for you! Just keep me in the loop!

    Fast to respond, but not too pushy.
    Thomas was easy to work with. Always quick to respond, but not too pushy on the sales side of things. Got some great recommendations and he gave me the time to mull it over without harassing me. His ski picks were spot on with what my friend in the industry recommended, so there you go.

    The best shopping experience I’ve had
    Right from the get-go Thomas knew exactly what I was looking for. Being in the east coast it’s always been hard to find that “perfect ski”, one that is amazing in the park, can handle ice well, and can shred pow (a very rare occasion over here). But after a quick convo with Thomas he knew exactly how to set me up. Clearly knows his stuff and the skis did not disappoint whatsoever. I was skeptical at first as to how much I could trust that these skis would live up to my expectations, but, they did not disappoint. By far the most fun skis I have ever used, they work phenomenally everywhere and I couldn’t be happier with my experience both with curated and Thomas.

    Knowledgeable Advice Tailored to My Level!
    Thomas did an amazing job asking lots of questions about how I ski, where I ski, what I'm hoping to get out of new skis, etc. I felt really confident to go demo some skis he recommended, and have since ordered them and am so excited to continue to improve on them!

    Thomas was great
    Thomas spent the time to understand how I like to ski and what I am trying to accomplish. His guidance and selection was spot on. I demoed other skis that weee recommended by the ski shops but no one recommended the ones Thomas recommended and they were superior in performance and matched my skiing style and goals perfectly. Without Thomas I would have purchased different skis that were good but not great. I look forward to many seasons with skis matched to me.

    Super easy, feels like we got just the right gear I needed
    Thomas was great! He was super thorough, knew how to apply his expertise to my unique experience, and made it a very pleasurable purchasing experience! It would be great to work with him again on a future purchase.

    Genuine Experience
    I am really hoping Thomas is a human and not am AI experience because it was the best online experience. Thomas gathered extra background info on my intended use for the skiis, including geographic destinations, and asked questions I would not have factored in to my purchase. I compares prices across the google search and find the recommendations do beat or match what they offer.

    Thomas was fantastic! He answered all my questions and concerns like a friend as opposed to a salesperson. Displayed knowledge in all aspects of equipment we discussed while offering his own personal experiences. Can't wait to see how it all plays out on the mountain...Thanks again Thomas!

    Thomas was very helpful in teaching me about different skis as well as finding the perfect ones for me! He also never pushed me to make a decision or purchase, just gave me sound advice and multiple options to choose from based on my preferences!

    In Depth Expertise
    Thomas was extremely helpful in choosing the right skis for me. I tried doing my own research and almost steered myself in the wrong direction. Thomas’s in depth knowledge of several manufacturers really helped me pick the right set up!

    Sam's experience with Thomas
    This whole business strategy is so unique. I really got a lot of value out of it! I'm not used to immediate responses, custom tailored recommendations, and nothing canned. And I got a true expert on the products I'm interested in. Not a generic salesperson. I see Curated does all sorts of other products, too? Crazy!
