I've spent the last 7 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 56 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!
