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

    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, and also changed my home base back to New York for a year. Wanting a different lifestyle, I then moved to Southern California, to enjoy all that the west coast has to offer! But don't worry, when I am not at the beach with my pup, or back in Colorado, you can find me at Mt. Baldy or Big Bear, CA.

    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’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!

    The most helpful sales rep, ever
    Put simply, I have a very tall and athletic build which makes finding nicely fitting clothes quite difficult, and yet on top of that, I want to be dressed like it’s Aspen Fashion week. And did I mention that I was a Floridian? So not only do I want to find nicely fitting clothes that are flattering, but I need to be and stay VERY warm. Arielle LISTENED to every wish I had and was extremely thorough in investigating and finding something tailored to what I would love. (She even compared sleeve lengths in jackets for me for goodness sake!!). If you have a chance to work with Arielle in finding your gear, consider yourself very lucky, and for sure, in good hands. She will take care of you

    Arielle was super helpful when working with me to find snowboard equipment. She asked all the right questions up front so that her suggestions on equipment were all very appropriate. All of the curated items were top quality and well priced. She’s definitely someone you should speak with before making your next upgrade!

    I didn’t even want to buy a new board, until Arielle made me realize what I missing under my feet. Then she sent me the Curated site and taught me about the Arbor’s Grip Tech and the Pow Fenders technology. So I bought the board. Thanks, Arielle!
