Ski Expert Thomas Harari
  • Thomas Harari

    I've spent the last 9 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 70 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!

    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!

    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!

    Thomas covered my entire Christmas shopping list in 15 minutes. He made the process of buyings skis, skins, and bindings so easy and totally seamless. Couldn’t have asked for better service and will be returning to Thomas for all my mountain gear needs!

    I thought the process was good… But the black Friday special was necessary to get an equal price to other places on the Internet. I would’ve hated to use all of the expertise of curated and then just pro shop at somewhere else so I was glad we could get something close

    I'm a first time ski buyer. I had two amazing curated specialists help me determine which skis, boots, and bindings would be best for me. They both offered great insight and advice to help me figure out the best possible ski choices (based on my skill set and personal preferences). I wouldn't be as happy as I am with my purchases if it weren't for their help. Thank you!!

    Thomas was very knowledgeable and helped me tremendously
    I had no clue what kind of bindings or boots to get for my new set of skis. Thomas was able to listen to my needs and recommend some great products that worked for me. I highly recommend getting in touch with him if you need any help!

    Thomas was very helpful. I was purchasing the skis for my son but the detail of questioning he asked to find the correct ski required me to have my son talk directly to him. I’m sure we are getting a ski that is correct for my son’s ski preferences. Thanks!
