Bluebird day near Breckenridge!
  • Frankie V.

    Born and raised in Chicago. In 2003 I picked up my first rental Rossi from Alpine Valley resort in Elkhorn, Wisconsin (proceeded to snap it racking on a tree 🤦🏾‍♂️) I was hooked.

    After 6 years stuck in the icy midwest glades, I got my first taste of Rocky Mountain powder. From that moment i could never ride those hills again. From there I would abandon my home in the plains for rocky mountain pow turns.

    I’m your personal gear nerd with years of obsessive research and knowledge. Ill get you get the perfect setup to crush those sketchy back bowls, bomb those absurdly steep chutes, or stomp any park feature. Were not gettin younger, so lets ride fast and take risks!

    Frankie was great!!
    I had some issues regarding my current snowboard set up, and some questions on what to do different. Frankie was knowledgeable and incredibly helpful with getting me on the right track. After just a short conversation, we found my issue, and got me set up with a board better suited for me. Thanks Frankie!!

    Frankie was great! Super helpful
    I wanted to get my brother a board for Christmas. Anywhere else I went, kept shoving these boards at me that were not at all what I was looking for. When I googled “need help with snowboard.” (Haha!) curated came up and Frankie contacted me. He was very helpful in showing me exactly what my brother needs to ride the east coast. Can’t wait to surprise my brother but I can say, he wouldn’t be getting this board if it wasn’t for Frankie! I was clueless!

    Aaron's experience with Frankie
    Everything from the start of the quiz was straight forward and easy. I got my expert Frankie. In a matter of seconds and right of the bat we started talking back and forth. He answers fast and with expert advice and opinions that I could tell were from experience. We talked till midnight when I finally made my decision. I could tell he is a real person who enjoys the sport and isn't trying to upcharge you. He gave expert advice on what to get based on simply his experienced with the gear and his knowledge.

    Frankie got me everything I was looking for!
    I was trying to buy my first set of boots, bindings, and snowboard. He helped me gather all the information from me and what I really wanted in each item. He made different selections without specific details and made sure I got what I wanted for the bets price. Thanks to him I will have all my brand-new gear before the season starts, and I'm so glad he was there.

    This guy knows it all!
    I couldn’t have asked to get paired with a more knowledgeable expert. This guy knows what’s up. It isn’t easy talking to someone for the first time about something with so many damn options! What’s crazy is how fast he came to understand my skill level - recommending gear that matches exactly what I was looking for and didn’t break the bank. He’s quick to respond and the guy you want to talk to for any snowboarding needs.

    Frankie is the man!
    Amazing experience! Frankie was incredibly responsive and very easy to talk to. I've been snowboarding for 20 years and I had a pretty good idea what I was looking for in a new board. Talking with Frankie helped me avoid HOURS of research and made me feel confident in my decision because he had ridden the boards I was caught between. Overall an incredible experience. I would recommend Frankie to all of my bros.
