Snowboard Expert Frankie V.
Bluebird day near Breckenridge!
  • Frankie V.

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

    After 6 years stuck in the Midwests icy glades, I got my first taste of Rocky Mountain powder. From that moment i could never only ride the midwest. From there I would abandon the plains for the rockies in Colorado.

    This life is short and we're not getting younger. Let's get out there and explore those uncomfotably sketchy back bowls and chutes suited only for the ballsy, the foolish, and the avalanches that follow.

    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鈥檛 have asked to get paired with a more knowledgeable expert. This guy knows what鈥檚 up. It isn鈥檛 easy talking to someone for the first time about something with so many damn options! What鈥檚 crazy is how fast he came to understand my skill level - recommending gear that matches exactly what I was looking for and didn鈥檛 break the bank. He鈥檚 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.

    Super knowledgeable
    Frankie was amazing, he told me exactly what I needed to know and didn鈥檛 beat around the bush or seem shady. Super straight forward and helpful rep. He kept my worries about pricing in mind and also reassured to me what would be the best pick. I鈥檇 give 100 stars but it only allows 5.

    Frankie was very helpful
    I had some ideas as to what kind of boards I was interested in (pow/all-mountain). Frankie found them for me as well as some other comparable boards. His review and demo of the board I was most interested in definitely sold me on it. It was great to see somebody ride the board that I wanted to buy in the same manner that I would be riding it, and to also say really good things about it. I have very specific issues with my feet and Frankie helped me find the right boot for the problems that I have. Basically, I had a personal shopper the entire time that I was going through the process of figuring out what I was going to buy. I highly recommend working with Frankie! He鈥檚 great!
