Snowboard Expert Austin Schimmel
Taking some lil shredders up the mountain!
  • Austin Schimmel

    My name's Austin and i’ve been enjoying the sweet white powder since I could walk. Being a snowboard instructor out west allows me to live outdoors and breathe in that fresh air everyday I go to work. I love it!

    This is my 3rd season in Park City, Utah and I've been having the best winters of my life. The powder is undoubtedly better than anywhere else i've been and i've gotten well acquainted with some of the best runs on the mountain, including some awesome trees, chutes, and cliff drops!!

    Having the ability to help others achieve their goals and dreams is what drives me to teach and work as an expert! I can't wait to help lead you in the right direction towards achieving your dreams!! Shoot me a message if you have any questions or would like to chat!

    Personalized video
    Already had some boards in mind and was asked what kind of riding I liked. He helped me into a proper sized board plus options that fit me better suited for me while also keeping me in the price range I wanted...and in this case I spent even less. Seeing a video made me know that the boards he picked wasn't just some autobot spitting out hot sellers but was actually made for me...thanks

    Austin is definitely NOT a bot !!!
    I've never used Curated before and I assumed I'd be chatting with bots, but I was certainly wrong. I told Austin what I needed and he read me like a book and made some great recommendations including the new Nidecker Supermatic Snowboard Bindings that I didn't even know about. This guy is an asset and he locked in a sale I've been kicking around for a long time!

    Bethanie's experience with Austin
    Austin is very knowledgeable, patient, and thorough. He took the time to explain options and make recommendations based on my unique needs. He asked great questions to better understand what I was looking for before sharing suggestions. Very easy to work with! I can wait for my new snowboard and gear to arrive! ❄️🏂🫶 Thx Austin!

    Austin was great!
    Austin made my shopping experience extremely easy. After trying to do my own research and getting overwhelmed with options he gave me the best options within minutes. Austin took the time to learn my riding style and what I’m trying to accomplish in my next season to come. Highly recommend working with Austin!

    As a very new/beginner snowboarder, I really don't know a whole bunch about boards & the gear needed. I had been borrowing my friend's board & gear, but after falling in love with the sport, I felt like it was time to buy my own. I landed on Curated after a good solid 3 months of looking around (not having much knowledge, but still looking). I got matched with Austin who is seriously the coolest & most kind snowboard expert ever!! His deep knowledge & willingness to answer all of my questions helped tremendously! I will 110% recommend Curated to all of my friends, but absolutely more specifically to speak with Austin! To Austin, thank you so much for making this scary-but-exciting purchase, so easy & enjoyable!! You are seriously the BEST!

    That buddy of yours that lives this sh*t
    Man.. I had never even heard of Curated before it popped up while I was searching for a new snowboard. I'm so glad I gave it a shot. Austin was like that friend you have that knows WAY more about something than you do. The difference is he's not bothered in the least by your continuous questions

    Austin was amazing as always
    It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

    With so many options out there, I’m really glad I found Austin at Curated to bring me viable options that met my needs and budget. He was helpful and responsive.

    Exceptional customer service
    Austin was friendly, easy to chat with, answered all of my questions and concerns with care, and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to get to know my riding style, what I’m looking to improve on and of course, helped me select the right board to take me to the next level. The detailed video for my personally curated list was extremely helpful since brand descriptions and reviews can be overwhelming. Thanks to Austin, I feel very confident in my board selection.
