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 84 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.
