Snowboard Expert Arielle Busch
Last day of the 19/20 season at Mt. Baldy - no complaints, it was magical!
  • Arielle Busch

    I've been sliding on snow since I was about 3 years old. After graduating college, I decided to turn my passion into a reality, as I headed west for my first career experience. I packed up my car with my one snowboard setup, (now a collection), and began working at Keystone Resort, CO, as a snowboard instructor. Later, I became a Ski School Supervisor.

    For 4 seasons, I lived in snowboarding paradise, as I was able to ride almost every day. In addition, I also worked at a local ski and board shop (when I wasn't on the mountain).

    After my Keystone experience, I decided to travel a bit, spent some time back east, and also enjoyed a year in Southern California to see what the west coast had to offer! Being that I live a very nodamic lifestyle, I purchased a travel trailer in 2021 and spent a season in Bozeman, MT. Currently, I'm back where it all started in Keystone, CO and can't wait to see what the 22-23 season brings :)

    Snowboarding is my passion, and a part of who I am. I’m thrilled to share the stoke of this sport, by giving people the assistance needed to achieve their goals. Helping you in a positive and supportive way keeps me energized! My ultimate satisfaction is knowing that I’ve helped you find gear that you love, and that will keep you totally impassioned about this sport!

    arielle was great!
    I was looking to buy a new board for this season and Arielle helped me understand everything so much better. I now know a lot more about snowboards and snowboarding in general! I asked a million questions and Arielle was happy to answer every single one of them and she even gave me tips on stance and carving! 🏂

    Arielle Arielle the No1 for anything about snowboarding
    Kinda "accidently found" Arielle via YouTube and contacted her as I really needed somebody with expertise. Been chatting back and forth a lot and she is funny, knows her stuff (absolute expert!!), is super helpful, friendly, absolutely stoked, always trying to find out what exactly you want and great with finding what's perfect for you. Really took a lot of time and effort to help me out and answer all my questions. My number one person to turn to whenever I have questions about snowboard gear or setup. Arielle, you rock, thanks a lot for everything, keep enjoying and spreading the stoke and love for SB and may you get an extra load of pow each year, you deserve it :)

    the absolute best!
    i found arielle through watching a curated youtube video review of the board i’ve had my eye on. i reached out to her since she looked about my size and i wanted opinions on what size i should get and what bindings i should get to also accommodate the boots i already own. she could not have been more helpful! she asked me a bunch of questions to make sure this board was actually appropriate for me, and gave me a great binding recommendation for such a great deal as well. could not recommend her enough! also so chill lol literally feels like i’m taking to a friend i’ve known for years

    Expert in all things snowboarding
    There are so many brands with all sorts of price points. I was really unsure of what type of snowboard gear to purchase. I have always borrowed gear so this was my first time actually getting my own. Arielle was a huge resource in helping me find quality gear that would last and for a decent price. I’m really happy with the jacket, pants, googles, and helmet I purchased!

    This girl knows her stuff!!
    As a female, fairly new the snowboarding world I was finding it hard to get good advice about snowboards for women. I found Arielle through a curated youtube video and sent her a message to see if she could help me narrow down my search. We quickly realized that because i live in Canada i wouldn’t be able to purchase through her directly but despite that she still offered me the most helpful advice I found thus far. This girl knows what she’s talking about, she’s super friendly, personable, and responsive. She just cares about getting people on the right board!! If i could’ve purchased my board through her I definitely would have!! Thank you so much for your help! I would 10/10 recommend the ladies connect with her if you are having trouble navigating through all the options and deciding what to buy

    Arielle gave great input!
    Working with Arielle to get recommendations for some new gear was awesome! She asked all the right questions like what kind of riding I do most often and where, what kind of gear I typically like/dislike, what my skill levels were. She made me feel confident in the recommendations she gave, especially when sharing her personal feelings on something. When a seasoned rider shares their favorite gear and why they love it, I value their opinion more. We all know how pricey new equipment can be and knowing that they're confident in what they ride really helps make the buying part easier haha. Arielle is super personable too! I'm very please with all the recommendations she provided.

    Arielle’s knowledge and suggestions were phenomenal
    I was just starting to shop to purchase my first snowboard and didn’t really know exactly what to go with. I stumbled across curated and started working with Arielle on some suggestions for what to purchase. Arielle was extremely thorough in making sure she knew exactly the type of rider I am, as well as what size I needed, and went to work picking out boards, bindings and boots that were meant for my riding style as well as in my exact size. She eliminated the confusion on making sure items were compatible, and correct for my riding style, and also worked to focus on items that were going to last but were also in my budget. Not only did she recommend items that would be good for me, she also took the time to explain why she chose each individual item and how they compare to the others recommended. I never felt pressured to go with exactly what she recommended, and if I liked something that wasn’t on the list, she quickly verified it would work with my board and was something that would last. She also checked to make I was getting the best price out there and even price matched another store for my snowboard to make sure I was getting the best deal possible. I would highly recommend working with Arielle on your next snowboard or gear purchase!
