Snowboard Expert Chris McCarty
Old Nosedive at Stowe
  • Chris McCarty

    Hi! Chris from Curated here I've worked in a VT snowboard shop as a retail staff member and tuning. I have a passion for research and development, hardgoods/softgoods. Let's find you a new setup or an upgrade! I'm addicted to quality gear and the latest and greatest. I've got a few hundred days on the mountain the past 5 years. Received my B.S. in Mechanical Engineering in the spring of 23'. Stowe is my favorite mountain! I ride a Capita DOA, Burton Deep Thinker, Burton 3D Fish and Burton Hometown Hero.

    outstanding help from chris
    He literally exceeded all expectations. The help of buying my first big purchase for snowboarding can’t go wrong with my man Chris!! He will help you learn new things about your style and the knowledge that he gives off that is crucial. I wouldn’t of known what type of snowboard to get

    Chris The Man
    I have been getting really solid recommendations from Chris from time to time. He understands my preferred riding styles and curated a list of gears that work for me. He updates the list periodically based on items availability. If budget isn't an issue, I'd get a whole new set based on his suggestions. Anyway, Chris found out that one of my favourite board this season is on sale and reached out immediaty. Simply the best guy on the internet, super responsive and knowledgeable, and I always have a great time chatting with him!

    Very helpful!
    Chris helped me pick out all of the gear I needed and told me a lot about each product I was purchasing! I purchased all of my gear over the summer and once the season started I noticed I needed a bag for my gear so he helped me find a really nice one that I have now purchased!

    Chris is a gem!
    This is the guy you want to help you pick your board. His in depth research on previous rides and what’s currently available really impressed me. Along with his knowledge of boot size and board width. He went the xtra mile to show me via a video my best options. Really cool experience. 10/10

    Great experience!
    I’ve been snowboarding for a few years but was always renting. Finally buckled down and committed to getting my own setup, but I didn’t really know where to start. Chris absolutely crushed it, was insanely helpful, responsive, and genuinely such a nice guy. It never felt like he was selling me on something but really just trying to set me up with the best gear and within my budget. I definitely recommend working with him!

    Chris was great and patient!
    We started this convo months back and he was patient and informative throughout the whole process! Gave nothing but solid recommendations and adjusted with me when I had new thoughts on what to get. Very knowledgable on all the recommendations he provided as well as on others he may have heard about. Def recommend!
