Snowboard Expert Alex V.
  • Alex V.

    Originally from the Lake Tahoe area, I've been back and forth from the Sierras to the Rockies for the last 15 years - while also calling places like Maui and Jasper home.

    I'm a former private snowboard instructor on Tahoe's highest base, Mt. Rose. Some of my favorite places to ride are Squaw/Alpine, Arapahoe Basin and Marmot Basin. Looking forward to gear hunting with you! 🤙

    Butch's experience with Alex
    While my interaction with Alex was brief, he was incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and personable. Honestly, I tried Curated on a whim assuming that I would be interacting with an algorithm and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was a human on the other end. Though I didn't end up purchasing anything at this juncture, I won't hesitate to reconnect with Alex when I resume my search for a new snowboard.

    Alex is super helpful!
    My relationship actually started with Alex about a year ago. I decided to postpone getting a board at that time but I reached out to him again and he responded immediately with new recs for the seasons, lots of information, and answered all of my questions! He made the experience so easy and so much better than had I just gone with one of the more “mainstream” names because they are most advertised. He’s made me feel very confident in my choice and I can not wait to shred on my new board this season!

    They Know Their Sh** Here At Curator!
    This is my second time coming to Curator in the last two years and they do not disappoint. Alex was helping multiple guest and he was still very responsive, on top of that he sent me plenty of information on the products I was looking for. Gave me multiple options and his personal experience with them. Alex even as far as to provide YouTube video reviews on the products I was interested in. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ thanks again Alex and look forward to coming to you guys next year!

    Alex is someone who really knows what she’s talking about!
    Alex really helped me out with choosing my boots! She knew exactly what I was looking for. Whether I wanted boots that had flexibility for jumps or were just comfortable for riding groomers. She also answered questions that I had with detail and recommendations! Thank you so much Alex !!!

    Gage's experience with Alex
    Alex was extremely helpful and knowledgeable but what kept me coming back was he was not pushy to make a sale. He understood my priorities and presented the best options. In the end, it took me about a month to buy a board and he was always responsive and willing to provide insight and his expertise.

    Very helpful!
    I can see the appeal and potential of this service and my expert exemplifies that. Alex was great in determining my needs and providing a great first line up of options. All my questions were answered in a professional, yet very approachable, way. Alex did well in keeping up with everything I kept adding to the choice equation along with all my detailed questions. With so many options it’s difficult to know what to pick; especially when you’re considering the combination of board, boots, and bindings to meet a certain ride style. I’m any case, Alex handled it all in stride and left me a happy customer. 100% would recommend.

    Attention to detail
    Alex guided me to the set up that fit me and what I was looking for perfectly. I couldn’t be more happy Curated, in my opinion, this should be your highest paid co-worker. I will be a life long customer and will bring everyone I know to Alex. 5 stars isn’t enough!

    Alex is great
    Alex has checked multiple times even when I dropped the ball on communication. He always shares some of the raddest boards at some radical price points. He stays in the loop and is very knowledgeable about the products from a season ago or more and up to the current. Overall great dude with great energy.

    If you want it, he'll find it.
    I was pretty settled on the board I wanted that Alex referred to me but, was planning on ordering bindings from Amazon. Alex asked if I needed bindings or anything else to go with the board, I mentioned the bindings I was interested in, sent him the Amazon link and he provided me the very same Flow bindings as a suggestion and quoted me the very same price as Amazon therefore, I made that purchase as well.
