  • Virginia G.

    I grew up skiing with my dad and knew by the age of 15 that I wanted to be a ski bum. After graduating college and dabbling in a variety of vocations I moved to Telluride, CO to fulfill my dream. While working for 3 years as a lift operator and ski coach I developed a deep passion for the mountain lifestyle, culture, and ski industry. Life's twists and turns eventually popped my ski town bubble which led me to my current place of residence, Port Angeles, WA...where the skies are grey and the snow is concrete, which only makes powder days that much sweeter! Though my day to day life is no longer completely ski-centric, I still find that the snow dominates my life choices...as I am ever-studying a new topo map, planning the next road trip, avoiding all committments during the winter season, and asking my husband to change his work schedule because "snow is on the way". Having spent most of my adult years working as a bartender and now working as Realtor, I am proficient in customer service and can identify a product specific to your needs. I am constantly searching for my own perfect ski and I would love to help you find yours!

    Thanks Virginia!
    Virginia was attentive to my skiing experience and level and recommended me some great skis that one of my friends also recommended! I can't wait to take them out on the slopes in the Pacific Northwest and at home in Alaska, and I got them at 20% off!

    Kudos to Virginia!
    I was finally ready to purchase my own ski equipment for the first time, but fell victim to paralysis by analysis trying to decide the best gear for myself. I stumbled across Curated and was lucky enough to get paired up with Virginia. After having done alot of research on my own; I found myself still in need of expert knowledge from someone with more experience than myself. Virginia knew all the right questions to ask in order to get a feel for my wants/needs, and even got into the nitty gritty technical details when I pressed on about what I imagined my future equipment to provide for me. A great conversation overall and I couldn't be happier with the results down my first run with my new gear. Thanks Virginia!

    Made it easier for a beginner!
    This was my first time purchasing ski gear for myself and wrapping my head around all of the different options was proving really difficult. Virginia was super helpful in explaining the options and recommending equipment that best fits my needs while remaining in my price range. She took the headache out of the process and I’m really grateful. I will definitely be using curated in the future and will be recommending to my friends/family across all of the product lines! Thanks again!

    So glad I found Virginia + Curated!
    We are in the midst of outfitting the whole family with ski gear. Trying to research to find the right ski for everyone, while also trying to get the lowest price, because, the whole family... was overwhelming until I found Virginia. Can't recommend her enough! She saved me a month of time and probably at least 2 gear returns per person!

    Great Gloves!
    Virginia's knowledge of cold weather gear finally ended my lengthy search for gloves. She took into account my needs, did the research and made specific recommendations. I just received the perfect pair of gloves, within day of placing the order. Thanks, Virginia!
