How did Curtis get started?
Curtis wrote on Indie Hackers that the project really got off the ground during Philly Startup Weekend in April 2013. He worked with a group to refine the idea and create a mockup, and the project ended up winning first place for the weekend.

Sounds like it was another four years or so before the app started earning Curtis enough money to justify him giving up his freelance gigs to work on Slopes full-time.
