Snowboard Expert Heidi E
  • Heidi E

    Originally from Texas, I didn't know what snow was until I was 7, when we moved to Montana. I learned to ski at 8 and snowboard at 10 at Big Mountain (Whitefish Mtn Resort) and never looked back. I doubled up on school ski days between the 2 local mountains and was a junior employee until 16 when I became a snowboard instructor at Blacktail Ski Area. Officially adding "professional" in front of "snowboard bum" on my resume and learning a whole new side of the sport.

    In 2015 I graduated college with a BS in Pre-med Exercise Science and moved to CO. I was only going to stay one season, then head back to Yellowstone Club. So here I am, 8 years later, still working at Snowmass with 3 more instructing certifications and a new love for the park. Snowboard instructing does technically count as using my degree.

    After taking last season off due to injury, I am happy to be back on snow teaching this season. Over so many years teaching (18 now!) so many things have changed. Most importantly, we have helmets now! And yes, everyone should wear one! I have answered thousands of questions about gear and with Curated, I can help you find the perfect gear before your big purchase. What are you most looking forward to this season?

    Matt's experience with Heidi
    So I'm a first time buyer and snowboarder. I wasn't sure where to start but Heidi helped me every step of the way! From the board, boots and bindings to a helmet, Heidi had a suggestion for everything. I can't wait to start doing something I've always wanted to do. Thank you for all of the help Heidi!

    Heidi was amazing to work with
    I couldn't have gone through the process of buying snowboards and the necessary accoutrements without her help! Trying to navigate through everything, being brand new to all of this, was so overwhelming and confusing on my own. Heidi was a pleasure to work with and so knowledgeable. I feel confident in my purchase much more so now, than if I had tried to do it solo. Thank you again Heidi!

    Heidi was so awesome!
    She was super quick. Knew a ton! Even some hip words this old lady didn’t know! She shared her history and connects very easily with people. Which makes the experience that much better! Everyone should be able to request her or something! I will for sure refer anyone I know!! Alison

    And so it begins…
    After a fun weekend at heavenly with a rental I decided to price out and try to find the perfect gear if I wanted to make snowboarding a seasonal hobby, and I stumbled upon this website. Heidi was quick to ask questions and figure out my situation and what I truly wanted. With her help I went from shopping around to looking for the perfect fit, her experience and advice made Me feel Like I was well taken care of. Without her help my season probably would have ended because of the low quality expensive rentals, but now I can get the most out of this season. I’m truly grateful for her help because now I think I found a way to treat my snow fever! Thank you Heidi!

    Heidi was great!
    I didn’t end up going with a product from curated due to in stock issues, but Heidi was awesome thru the process and was very knowledgeable! I wish I could have completely utilized her but wouldn’t hesitate in the future!

    Great experience overall!
    Didn’t have a clue about this website before and felt it was a great resource to have as someone without a lot of background in snowboard gear.
