    Born and raised in Texas, I grew up skiing on vacations in New Mexico and Colorado. Skiing a few times a year wasn’t enough for me, so I came to Montana as fast as I could, and now ski 50+ days a year. I love chasing powder in the resorts and back country around the state, but I also love staying close to home and skiing our local spot (Snowbowl) just 20 minutes from my house.

    When I purchased my first pair of skis, I loved the process of researching options and testing what would be a good fit. Since then I have steadily increased my own gear collection and knowledge, and have been lucky to spend the last two seasons helping tons of people find the best gear for them through Curated.

    As the saying goes, a pair of skis is the ultimate transportation to freedom, and I’d love to help you find your new transportation!

    Shopping on phone is horrible! pop up chats and other pop ups make the experience very frustrating. I was going to just shop somewhere else. then I called in and got it done.

    Tyler made the decision process much easier in a market place full of good choices. He listed skis I already had on my list and confirmed I had made a good choice. This is a great way to buy technical equipment in the absence of being able to physically go to a very large ski shop.

    Tyler was so patient!
    I had not skied in a long time and he was able to listen to what I used to do and bring me into 2022! He explored lots of options for me and we even ended up finding my daughter something as well. Great experience that I was not expecting.
