Snowboard Expert Bobby Chadderton
Its hard to balance work/play when they’re both the same thing ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Bobby Chadderton

    Heyyo! I'm a (fully stereotypical) Canadian living in Bozeman Montana chasing powder and fun times with friends.

    I've been working in the Snowboard Industry for 7 years since I graduated college after leading Temple University's snowboard club. Today I manage a team of ski and snowboard experts right here at Curated! I'm a writer, graphic designer, tattoo advocate, gear nerd and a self-proclaimed spreader-of-stoke.

    I grew up riding park on the east coast and have been fortunate to travel all over the U.S. riding and exploring the best terrain our country has to offer. I spent a year as a Snowboard Instructor at Breckenridge - if you're planning a trip to Colorado definitely ask me for tips! I've had the opportunity to demo the majority of boards on today's market and I'm always learning!

    I'll be spending most of my time this season splitboarding the Bridger range and demoing new gear in Summit County CO

    So! what do I need from you?

    Be honest with me about what you are looking for! Tell me your timeline, your budget, experience level, and anything else that can help me find you exactly what you need. I'm a passionate snowboarder, not a salesperson! I also spent a year sitting in a rubber tube from falling on my ass learning how to snowboard about 16 years ago, I'd love to help prevent you from going through that! If you're a beginner - I'll never forget how confusing it was buying my first board!

    If you're working with me, this is a team effort. Lett's find you the perfect setup! I know this market pretty well and will go above and beyond if it means you'll be stoked and smiling on the mountain! I'm always happy to find something cheaper, a different color, or put things on hold for a few months if that's better for you! Connect with me on Instagram and keep me in the loop on your winter adventures!

    To start, I'm not a big spender. I could have used a friend's employee discount at REI and saved a bunch money, but I wouldn't have known what to get had Bobby not been helping me along the way. Sure I spent some extra, but I love this personalized experience. Hard to put a price on his expertise. I have wasted a bunch of money shopping in Sun and Ski and having an inexperienced salesmen size me wrong and suggest the wrong equipment. He's not a salesmen, and he legitimately cares about putting you in the right equipment based on your wants and needs. I have been working a ton lately and Curated works perfectly for me. It gives me so much flexibility when it's hard to make any time to run errands. Bobby spent A LOT of time answering my questions in great detail, and I can truly say I learned quite a bit regarding the technical aspects of a snowboard. I think Bobby was meant for this haha. I'm so pumped to get out there this winter! Thanks again for helping me out again this time around. Until next time!

    Bobby will save your life!
    Here's the story: I had spent many hours in snowboard shopping purgatory before I found I was reading reviews all over the internet, and at about midnight last night, I stumbled upon the expert advice section. I gambled and decided to fill out the form to talk to an expert, doubting that anyone would be on the other end. But there he was - Bobby - a true brother and guide. I spilled out exactly what I needed and even though he almost gave me Proto FOMO, we chatted, joked and researched our way to the Salomon Assassin as the perfect choice. I am so grateful to have met him and will be a livelong advocate for this platform. It was such a casual conversation, which saved me from buying the wrong stuff. I'll be sure to send my friends his way, and you should too! Hey Bobby, let me ride your Proto FR if I ever run into you. Thanks again bruv!

    An absolute legend
    First off Bobby knew exactly what he was doing. I told him my price range for each product and he found the best quality stuff for the price. After talking a while we found out that he used to ride where I ride so we ended up having a lot in common. I would recommend Bobby to anyone and everyone because he truly wants what’s best for the customer.

    Really knowledgable
    I recently moved closer to Tahoe and with that, would like to really dive into snowboarding. The board I currently have I bought off a friend for 20$, so I was definitely looking for another board that was my correct size and a board I could grow into. Bobby understood my needs and gave great knowledgable recommendations and I'm very excited about the board I chose! Overall the experience was very easy and it really helped to take the guess work out of buying a new board.

    Awesome Company & Great Customer Service
    We worked with Bobby Chadderton who was so great to deal with. He went above and beyond working with me and my son to get the best set up for his new snowboard. Tons of back and forth with different options and suggestions as well as personalized video chats to make sure we were getting what we needed!! Such a great experience that I couldn’t be happier and can’t say enough about Bobby!!

    knowledgable and personable
    I never want to feel as though I left without having answers to my questions or feeling that I could not get where I wanted to get when purchasing or inquiring about something. When talking to Bobby, he made it a personable experience in which his knowledge and understanding of the consumers' needs met seamlessly. Personally, that's all any consumer wants. So thank you, I look forward to shredding down the mountain.

    All around great dude
    I purchased a set of boots and it just so happened that they didn't have them in stock. He felt so bad, he went out of his way to find me other options. Curated also came through, shit happens, but they hooked me up for the inconvenience. Long story short, after hunting and searching for a week he found me the boots that I wanted! Bobby totally went out of his way to make things happen and make sure I got what I wanted. Definetly a stand up guy and salesman. He didn't have to do half of what he did, but he did. I will definitely be back again for more purchases!!

    Helpful and Fast!
    Bobby helped me find a good deal on my first splitboard puck and binding setup - he was very helpful and kept checking back in with me as he found other options I may be interested in. Once I did place my order, the shipping was super fast and everything came exactly as ordered. I'd definitely use Curated again in the future and work with Bobby for any snowboarding related purchase. Thanks!

For me being a huge snowboarding fan that's been out of the game for a little bit bobby did an amazing job of bringing me back up to course on the awesome new tech. He's super knowledgeable, friendly, prompt, helpful, and an all-around great guy. People like Bobby make curated a great place to shop!

    Bobby is the dude!!
    Super friendly, super helpful. Bobby sent me several solid options right away and followed up with me helping fine-tune exactly what I was looking for. Ended up grabbing his #1 suggestion and I am SO stoked to break it out this season. Very happy that I found Curated and was able to set myself up to shred in style. 5 stars all around!!
