Snowboard Expert Jess LeBorgne
The most fantastic view in the east: Mt Washington from Bretton Woods, NH
  • 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.

    Jess was super helpful!
    I'm a beginner to intermediate snowboard rider and needed help picking out a new board to ride for this winter. After several questions about my experience and where I like to ride, Jess gave me a lot of helpful advice and pointed me in the right direction to make sure the snowboard I got was the perfect one to keep me learning and growing. Thanks a lot, Jess!

    Jess is the Stoke Master!
    Jess is dope and knows her stuff. I had a couple of boards in mind and she helped me narrow it down to the ones that were best suited to my riding style. She also gave me some tips on gear upgrades as I continue to progress in my riding. I really enjoyed the experience and can't wait to get this board on the mountain.

    Jess is amazing!
    Jess is wonderful overall, very responsive, helpful, patient, easy to talk to, and made me feel comfortable learning about what’s best for me. a savior in my search for new gear took all my stress away and made it so easy. this website/process/experience has been so great, i probably would have given up on snowboarding without Jess because I couldn’t do it alone. Thank you.

    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 !!!
