    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! 🤙

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Gear Purchase
    Alex didn’t just try to sell me stuff based upon price. I was actually given the run down of what board curvature, bindings, and boots would be more suitable to my ride style WHILE keeping my style fresh for when I hit the slopes! I Immediately shared all links to my friends so Alex could also provide them the best customer service and deals on winter gear. Highly recommend with my greatest gratitude!

    Alex was incredibly helpful.
    This was our first time using a service like this and I would definitely recommend Curate. Alex responded quickly and was able to offer the info and answer our questions every time. Swapping snowboarding injuries was fun too.

    Board Searching
    I had been looking for a snowboard for almost a year now, and was never able to make a decision or they were out of my price rage. Being new to the snowboarding world it was confusing and I wanted to spend my money wisely. I had just found Curated and just decided that I might as well try to talk to someone, what could go wrong! I was very surprises to be contacted back almost immediately. Alex was amazing, answer all of my many questions, and tried to get to know me and what I needed out of a board! Hands down best experience that I could have had! I talked to Alex and was recommended a few snowboards and I bought one the next day! After a year of searching, Alex helped me find one that I LOVE within a day. Thank you, THANK YOU so much Alex!!!

    Alex is my hero
    I would have never been able to make this purchase without Alex’s help. My son and I are in two different states and he connected with both of us, allowing us to make an excellent decision based on our “mutual” preferences. My son will now thoroughly enjoy his graduation gift and I will thoroughly enjoy him enjoying it ! 🤙🏼

    New Friend!
    I stumbled on to Curated from a Facebook ad. Within minutes I was hooked up with Alex. A few texts and a quick call we were buds. We deal hunted together and like a great friend walked me through my own head. Alex made herself available at almost all times of the day and even went beyond expectations and found deeper deals for me. Total savings around $200+ on killer brands!
