Snowboard Expert Jess LeBorgne
When theres no snow you improvise.
  • Jess LeBorgne

    I couln't tell you what originally roped me into snowboarding to the point where it defines me. I've always loved winter and growing up in Maine we had 6 months of it to enjoy. I grew up outside; sledding, snowmobiling, hiking. One day shortly after my 21st birthday some friends invited me to go snowboarding at Shawnee Peak and my life changed forever. That may seem overly dramatic but fast foreward a handful of years. I was working the most boring of snoozefest jobs at a bank when I decided to pick a nearby resort on a map and move there and get a job. I wanted.... needed more. Ok, so it wasn't a resort, but a jumping off point. Crotched Mountain and Mount Snow became home for me for 7 years. I rode everywhere in New Hamphire whenever I could but I learned about the shop life and that was what I wanted. I've even been blessed to teach a few clinics! Fast foreward some more and a move to PA. I found Blue Mountain and immediately clicked with the vibe there; I've been able to ride with and impact so many on their shred journey. Thats's truly what it's about for me: to share my passion for riding and gear: honestly, you can' beat snow falling in the trees, but realistically i'm bombing groomers and finding side hits. Shred or Die.

    Leta's experience with Jess
    I was looking for a couple of boards as gifts for my twins, I have no idea about them. Jess was amazing to not only understand what a good product would be for their current level but also for them to use as they progress. Even better she kept price top of mind (which really matters when buying 2). We will be reaching out again when we get more gear.

    Jess is the GOAT
    Jess helped me find the right board for my needs. I told her what I wanted to accomplish this upcoming season and that I’ve been progressing and would like a more advanced board and she sent me a list of a few boards that would work. She compared them for me and told me they’re perks and which one would be the best for me. She’s also just an awesome person and has so many cool things to talk about. We chatted a little bit about boarding and where she goes and what her favorite products are, it was just a blast all around working with her. She knows her stuff and is definitely an expert make no mistake about it!! Thanks so much, Jess you rock!

    Jess was amazing and then some!
    Jess was really patient and kind with me. I haven’t snowboarded since I was 19 years old(I’m 30 now) and I was a beginner back then too. I’ve been nervous to get back on the mountain and I expressed my concerns to Jess and she went above and beyond to help find me the perfect board and bindings for my level and abilities. She always found me a great deal! Thank you Jess !!!

    Absolute Legend
    Probably the best customer service experience I've ever had getting into a new hobby. So hard to find knowledgable and HONEST feedback about equipment in this field and Jess pulled no punches. She knows her stuff and is willing to let you know when what you're thinking about buying is not a good choice for you as a rider. Right stuff for the right rider and she works that for sure.

Jess asked me questions specific questions about what I currently have and what I was looking for and she explained why should recommended a product, she was very knowledgeable. Honestly felt like I was talking to my best friend. 10/10 would recommend working with Jess again!

    If Jess says buy X, I will buy X because she knows her stuff!
    Jess is an absolute blessing going above and beyond. She provided me with detailed information on various snowboards, explained the various snowboard profiles, listened intently and understood what I needed for my conditions. I have never in my life been so amazed by outstanding customer support. I really hope the people reading this will recognize what a rare and phenomenal person Jess is. I'd gladly wait for one of the boards to open up just to buy it from Jess. I would also be happy to answer any additional questions about why I think Jess is perhaps the best snowboard expert I've ever come across.

    Jess is awesome!
    Finally looking to replace my almost 15 year old board with something newer and more challenging. Jess was very helpful in helping me find a baord that's a really great match. I'm an advanced and hardcharging female rider which can be tricky to find in women's snowboarding gear. Jess knew exactly what to recommend and and tuned her recommendations as we got into the details my riding style and preferences. She was really easy to talk to and knew the gear lineup really well. So glad I got matched with her. Highly recommend.

    Jess is the best
    Jess' knowledge of snowboarding gear is absolutely phenomenal. She is able to breakdown the nuances of different board profiles / boot + binding in a way that even a newbie understands. I wish she would write a book, or a blog with all that awesome knowledge of gear, riding, and everything else! I highly recommend folks at any level looking to upgrade their gear talk to Jess.
