  • Tony Berner

    Hey hey ski fam! I've been living in Jackson, WY for the past six years and have zero plans on leaving. In the winter I work as a ski instructor and a bartender in order to maximize my free skiing time (I've proudly hacked to umpth degree the ski bum life!). I have been building skills and working for bigger and bigger back country/ski mountaineering lines over the past 6 years, but with that said I do remember what it was like to be a beginner. I am from Pennsylvania and did not grow up skiing. It is a passion I realized later in high school and college. So although I might be considered an expert by some I remember all the trials that beginners go through, especially when it comes to buying gear. So, whether you're an expert skier looking for new gear or are brand new to the ski world, I can help you.

    If I am paired with you as an expert just know that _I want you to have the best experience possible on the mountain. _Many of the most fulfilling days of my life have been spent in snowy hills on skis. So, trust me when I say I will do everything I can to help you have the same experiences.

    Lastly...if you need to know anything about skiing with dogs in your backpack I'm your guy!!

    Mitchell's experience with Tony
    Big purchases like a new pair of skis require maximum certainty, and Tony gave me the utmost confidence in his expertise and his ski recommendation. I can’t thank him enough for taking time to answer my several follow-up questions and I am confident that I will unwaveringly trust my gear in all the new terrain I plan on shredding in the Mountain West. He even made sure to hunt for discounts so I got the absolute best deals. Can’t thank you enough, Tony!

    Tony was great, I’m going to try out the glove liners he recommended! And although I ended up getting my new skis/bindings from my local shop…Alex was also super helpful in getting me pointed in the right direction of what kind of skis I was looking for! Many thanks to both of you!

    Working with Tony made the experience of buying ski gear much easier and less overwhelming. I am newer to skiing and do not have knowledge about the millions of options available. Tony presented great options, feedback, and continued support along the way throughout the whole process. I look forward to receiving my purchases and trying out the gear!

    Thank you Tony!
    I have used my mom's old skis for years and really wanted an upgrade but had no idea where to start looking. Tony was very knowledgeable and helpful, providing several options that fit my ability level, size, and terrain preferences. He was also able to recommend bindings and boots at an awesome price! Highly recommend working with him.

    Tony was fantastic. He was interested in my needs, tailor fit his recommendation to my situation and budget, responded to my questions over days, and matched another website price. No way I couldn't buy the package the way Tony put it together. I'd have been stupid to walk away. He nailed it so good I added a small gratuity, and he earned it. Thanks Tony!

    Couldn't recommend a better Curator to get you through the ski buying process! He answered all of my questions patiently & quickly and helped me work through everything from finding my first pair of skis to snagging the right helmet. Thanks Tony!

    Super Helpful!
    I was looking to buy my first set of skis, but wasn't sure where to start (as I've always rented). Tony set me up with excellent options for boots, bidnings, skis, and poles. I look forward to getting out on the mountains with them after I purchase them!

    With so many great skis out there, it’s very hard to decide which to buy for the desired snow conditions and terrain. Tony zeroed in on DPS Foundation which coincidently is very similar to a pair of Wailers I used to own which I loved.

    Tony is the best!!
    Tony was extremely knowledgeable and patient with me as I figured out what gear I wanted. He was approachable, responsive, and awesome to work with! I would recommend Tony to everyone. He might easily be the best person to work with on Curated. Couldn't thank him enough for getting me a great deal!

    Tony was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable
    Tony was super helpful and patient with me as I looked to purchase my second set of skis and first touring setup. He answered my countless questions as I debated different setup options. He put together multiple options for me and compared and contrasted the different qualities aspects of skis I was looking at. Super stocked to try out my new Ben Chetlers
