Snowboard Expert Gaelen Mast
Spring slush days!! (Okemo Mountain, April 2022)
  • Gaelen Mast

    Heya! my name is Gaelen and I've been snowboarding for longer than I haven't!

    I was practically raised by the mountain resort industry, my mother and father were both full-time "snowboard bums" when I was young and so I've been around ski resorts since I was a kid! As soon as I was legally able to work I got a job as a snowboard instructor at a local mountain. In the past five years I continued to work as an instructor as well as a rental technician and a terrain park crew member!

    For better or for worse snowboarding has become one of my biggest personality traits and I'll talk about it with anyone who will listen (seriously anyone)! Having worked for Curated for over a year, my main goal has always been to simply find customers the right gear that they'll truly stoked about, not push them to buy for the sake of profits. I've helped 6,000+ customers (and counting) and I'm confident that I can do the same for you!

    Gaelen was the ideal expert!
    From knowing what's best for you at the level you're looking for to finding the right deals to being the most patient person, Gaelen is about as great as it gets! I've been looking into getting a board for about a year and a half and Gaelen was helping me every step of the way while giving me the time I need to sort my college life out and make my indecisive decisions! I'm a beginner boarder so even from the very start, Gaelen was telling me about what types of terrain there are and other information other than the equipment. The most friendly person, DEFINITELY recommend!! Excited to use the products he found for me!

    Amazing
    I have been talking with Gaelen for about a year now. Unfortunately life got in the way and I could buy the first time we talked. He was super understanding and even reached out after a few months to check up on me and see where I was still interested in getting a board. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

    I Would Hire Him
    Gaelen was engaging and professional while curating a terrific lineup of snowboards and bindings for me. I felt comfortable throughout the entire experience. I own a small brick and mortar shop in Minnesota and based on my experience with Gaelen, I would hire him myself. He really did a great job.

    Gaelen was amazing!
    I first contacted Gaelen over a year ago and he came back the next winter to help me out again. He was very knowledgeable about all the gear and he helped me find the best gear for my budget and skill level. If you are looking for an expert who will help you find the best gear for you then Gaelen is a great choice!

    Mike's experience with Gaelen
    Super knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I never thought about buying a board this way but Gaelen made me feel comfortable with his selections because he took the time to learn my riding style and to explain the products to me. This was one of the best buying experiences I’ve had.

    Amazing Process! Made the whole experience less scary!
    Gaelen was super helpful in the process of buying my first snowboard. I usually rent from parks and have been wanting to buy my own set. When I started looking the options were endless and a bit overwhelming. Gaelen helped with picking the best board and binding for me specifically for my skill set! I He was extremely knowledgable on all my questions and understood all my concerns. Overall! Wonderful experience :)
