Ski Expert Thomas Harari
  • Thomas Harari

    I've spent the last 10 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 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.

    Jan's experience with Thomas
    I needed to upgrade all of my gear for Downhill and back country skiing. Thomas was extremely helpful and steered me to some unbelievable deals and fantastic equipment that suits my my needs perfectly. Just got back from my first full day of resort skiing and I have to say, I was giddy all day with how great all my gear was! Thank you Thomas!

    WOW WOW WOW!! Thomas is one cool cat! I asked him to find me the steezy-est pants and not only did he find them, he send me a video of him doing a backflip so I had to get them. Can't wait to huck some 50 footers in the new kit!! My go to gear guy, one day we will hangout and learn how to juggle.

    Thomas gave appropriate information
    I’m a fully certified ski instructor, assistant director of a ski school and chief trainer. I get information on equipment from many sources but almost always geared towards heavier, more aggressive skiers. Thomas focused properly on my needs. Bravo.

    Thomas Harari was awesome! He was a pleasure to work with and asked all the right questions to find me the exact ski that I needed! He was able to answer any and all questions I had about his recommendations as well as all the questions about my current, 12 year old skis. He really gave me the confidence that I was purchasing the right ski and binding for my skiing style and preferences. I have never purchased new skis before, so I was a bit overwhelmed with the amount of choices I had. With yalls help I was able to make the right decision, and at a great price as well! Thanks again!

    Thomas was very knowledgeable and helped me pick the perfect pair. I'd been searching skis but not commiting to ordering them for the past few months bc I just didn't know if they were the right set for me. Just a few minutes of chatting with Thomas about what I was looking for, I felt confident in the ski's I ended up ordering. I would recommend this site to any of my mountain peeps.

    Thomas was incredibly helpful and professional
    I worked with Thomas in helping to identify a new pair of new all mountain skis. He selected two skis and I wanted to demo them prior to purchase. By the time I got to Tahoe to demo both skis most of the ski shops were having sales. I worked with Thomas in hopes he could price match, but he was not able to match the killer deal of 50% off. I felt terrible about this whole turn of events, as he had patiently worked with me for quite some time. Throughout the whole process he remained incredibly professional. I am hopeful next season I can work with him again to purchase additional gear. I could not recommend him more highly!!!

    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.
