Ski Expert Thomas Harari
  • Thomas Harari

    I've spent the last 11 years here in Bozeman MT, where I came to get a college degree and ski as much as possible - 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 93 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.

    ​I currently have 5 skis that I ski, ranging from light touring skis to hard-charging powder skis.

    kj's experience with Thomas
    I am thrilled to write a review for Thomas based on my recent experience at curated. Thomas was an absolute pleasure to work with, proving outstanding knowledge and professionalism throughout our interaction. What impressed me most about Thomas was his deep understanding of the products. Despite my numerous questions and being a complete novice, he patiently answered each one, providing clear and thorough explanations that helped me grasp the information. Moreover, Thomas's ability to guide me through a change in perspective was truly remarkable. Initially, I had a different idea of what I wanted, but he took the time to explain a few things and provide additional information that completely shifted my understanding and made total sense to me post our discussion. Thanks to Thomas's assistance, I confidently purchased the Salomon Stance 96, and I am eagerly anticipating using them. His expertise and guidance played a significant role in my decision-making process. Thank you, Thomas, for your outstanding service and dedication to customer satisfaction

    Thomas not only knows the technical side of ski manufacturing but is a skier who can appreciate a well built ski that performs as advertised.
    It took me a while to decide on what ski will replace my faithful high performance Rossi S7 ski. Thomas has the knowledge and experience I needed to find an technologically improved version of the wonderful ski Rossignol S7 .

    So Helpful!
    I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

    Thomas knocked it out of the park!
    I had no idea where to start when looking into skis and boots. I am an intermediate skier who has been about 10 times. I knew I didn’t want to rent anymore, but had no idea what speciations to look for with personal skis and boots. Thomas was incredibly knowledgeable and presented me with tons of great options! All I had to do was answer a few simple questions and he knew exactly what I needed. I can’t wait to try out my new gear knowing I got the best bang for my buck. Thanks a ton, Thomas and Curated!!

    Peter's experience with Thomas
    Thomas helped me confirm the skis I was considering were indeed a right fit for what I wanted out of my first skis. The way he explained the pros and cons of certain options I threw in the mix helped me learn what to look for in future skis. Thanks for teaching me how to fish, man!

    Thomas did a great job setting me up with great equimpent.
    Thomas, took me a while to get back to you, because we've been doing so much skiing! I got the whole new set up, head kore skis, k2 boots and the shift bindings. I LOVE all of it! I’ve now skied the trees, groomers, powder and heavy crud and have loved them in everything. Last weekend we skinned back country and I was super psyched with the boots! Couldn’t believe they felt as comfortable as my tele boots! And everything’s great on the groomers too! Last week, when the glades all opened up it took me a while to realize how much faster I could get my skis around….. I’m so excited that I did curated, because if I had waited to work with a ski shop or demo I’d still be on my old gear….. I just don't like doing that stuff. Thanks again for all your help and patience with all my questions! Carrie Ridgway

    Thomas knows the gear…..
    Thomas put me in my first set of solid fitting boots in over 15 years. The skis he curated were an informed choice as he had spent time on my home mountain and knew exactly what conditions and terrain I would be skiing. He spent the time to listen to what I was looking for in a pair of skis. I am confident he will do the same when I come back to buy my next pair of skis from him.

    Thomas was very helpful!
    Even though I'm not a big spender, Thomas was patient and helpful. I asked lots of questions and he matched me with skis that are a great fit for me and my budget. This is my first purchase with Curated and it was a great experience. I highly recommend Curated and Thomas!
