Snowboard Expert Jake Aronson
  • Jake Aronson

    I grew up in Philly, but gained my snow legs at Sunday River in Bethel, Maine where two generations of Aronson's learned to ski. Naturally I started on two planks before making the switch to a single plank when I was 10, and have been snowboarding ever since.

    Over the years, I moved further south down the mid Atlantic seaboard, but still made my way back up to Sunday River for some family skiing. Since then, I've been fortunate enough to ski most of the "Ice Coast", and have slowly but surely made my way out to the Rockies where I live today.

    Moving out to Denver hasn't helped my gear obsession at all...in fact it's starting to become a space issue in my apartment (just ask my girlfriend). But fortunately it's getting more use than I ever expected, so make sure to say hey when you see me at the Ikon resorts every weekend!

    Outside of Curated, I'm an engineer in environmental restoration, an avid Philly sports fans (Go Eagles), outdoor enthusiast, and novice carpenter - emphasis on novice. I love chatting about snowboarding and everything that goes with it, environmental issues, sports, and your favorite stand up bit. Looking forward to connecting with you!

    Jake is definitely an expert!
    He was even thinking about my future as a rider, and made recommendations based on whether I was growing or not, that was incredibly helpful for someone who is buying a board for the 1st time, but has been on the slopes for much longer. The only reason I didn’t say he was funny is because we didn’t make any jokes, he was straight to the point and very professional but at the same time casual enough to be approachable. I thank him for all his time, this afternoon and he even said I could come back if I have any more questions, and they are going to follow up to make sure everything I get is in good shape when it gets here.

    Alex's experience with Jake
    Jake was incredibly helpful, he was even thinking about the future of my riding. When I asked if: me not knowing whether my height was 5’4” or something taller, he asked if I was growing and then made a recommendation based on that. That is great assistance right there, thank you for the help mate.

    Jake was awesome!
    It was so amazing to chat with someone so knowledgeable! Jake was responsive and even provided videos of how some of the recommended gear works. I had a wonderful experience - as a beginner to backcountry Split-boarding, it's easy to feel unsure of yourself but Jake was never judgemental, and only provided expert recommendations and stoke! 10/10!

    Super Thankful to Jake
    I came in not knowing what I was really looking for and Jake guided me through the process. He helped me find a new board to help me get better and some bindings to match. So thankful for the experience. I would recommend Jake to anyone looking to upgrade their gear.

    Jake is the man.
    I legit knew nothing about snowboarding and Jake was very helpful in informing me on everything I lacked, even lingo. The dude also was not out to just get me to buy the expensive things, he was real with me and respected my price range.
