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 started snowboarding at age 11 and have been addicted ever since. As soon as I was legally able to work I got a job as a snowboard instructor at a local mountain and I haven't looked back! I've been working in the mountain resort industry for six years now including as an instructor, rental technician, terrain park crew member, and in a dedicated snowboard shop!

    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!

    I've helped 7,114 people find the right product - I'd love to help you too!

    I recently had the pleasure of using, and I must say, the experience was absolutely outstanding! From start to finish, the platform's dedication to providing personalized recommendations and excellent customer service truly impressed me. The standout feature of my experience was undoubtedly the expert assigned to assist me, Gaelen. His promptness in providing feedback and attentiveness to my needs were truly commendable. I was amazed at how quickly he responded to my queries and provided insightful recommendations tailored specifically to my preferences. Not only did my expert listen attentively to my needs, but he also went above and beyond to ensure that the products they suggested were a perfect fit for me. He took the time to understand my requirements, preferences, and budget, which resulted in recommendations that were spot on. It felt like they genuinely cared about my satisfaction and were invested in helping me make the right decision.

    2nd time using Cuated. Love it. Once for skis for me and the other for snowboard boots for my daughter. Fats shipping and excellent service. Love working with the experts. I tell everyone about the site. I hate our tipping culture today, but love giving extra to these experts who give great service and advice during the process. Absolutely pleased.

    Gaelen was AMAZING!!!
    So I purchase snowboard three years ago in a store near to my home and the guy over there probably just tried to close the deal and get paid. Unfortunately, I ended up buying the wrong board for me. I got recommendation from Asulin regarding curated and get matched with Gaelen I can tell you it was the best experience I have ever had purchasing something online Gaelen was really friendly and really helpful. I asked him tons of questions because last time I purchase a board I ended up with the wrong one He was very patient with me, and help me understand what is the best option for me, and eventually narrow it down to one snowboard, and one set of boots. Can’t express my feeling enough on how much I appreciate his time and his knowledge Definitely recommended by any means!!! Thank you so much and I can’t wait to hit the slopes with my new board.

    Very approachable and understanding guy! Had some things come up and wasn’t able to buy at the start of season and he was very understanding and didn’t continuously message me fishing for a sale which is unlike most sales associates I’ve dealt with. He’s a great guy who knows what he’s talking about and I hope to speak with him again when I’m ready for my next purchase!

    I was recommended curated by a buddy and figured I'd give it a shot, although I knew exactly what I wanted. Their expert informed me that they don't carry that exact product but gave me a few others similar. Options I wouldn't have considered on my own. I'm very happy with my overall experience and glad I was able to pick something extremely similar to my original at a better cost.

    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!

    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!
