Answer a few quick questions to get started with Johnny
May in Mammoth
  • Johnny Addleman

    Snowboard Instructor, Backcountry Enthusiast

    Twenty years ago I was a kid in the dead of central Pennsylvania winter bundled up to hike a water tower hill with some plastic snurfer ripoff and the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    After moving to Colorado in 2007 for college my snowboarding progressed and eventually intersected with mountaineering & climbing interests, leading to first backcountry experiences. In 2016 I fell for the sunny Sierra Nevada and have been working at Mammoth Mountain, CA the past 3 seasons. Powder, trees, granite and the feeling of the mountains are what it's all about for me.

    Awesome dude, Quick answers, Even better advice
    Johnny was awesome to work with while looking for my first setup, I’m an intermediate rider with the passion for boarding but no knowledge of the tech, johnny helped me narrow down my decisions based off my riding style and really hit the nail on the head, after vast amounts of research I became increasingly interested in a different board and messaged johnny for some advice, being almost a week from our first conversation he answered right away again and solidified any doubts in my head for the board, he also gave me great binding recommendations and awesome boot choices, I could not be happier with the professionalism and care I received from him!!!

    Jonny is a very knowledgeable Snowboarder
    This was my first time on the website and I absolutely loved it being able to speak with an expert and getting their opinion on what board you should get is awesome! I would definitely show my friends about this website. Along with Jonny he spoke about his boards and what he would personally see me riding along with the specks of all of the boards he recommend, which definitely helped a lot.

    Best service ever
    Johnny was there every step of the way. He found many different options based upon my preferences. Even suggest better options when I thought I was all set. I had some issues with shipping due to my location and he went out of his way to make sure I got my gear as soon as possible. Best online shopping experience I've ever had. Even better than in the store! 10/10 would recommend.

    Not sure why this curated site went up. Glad it did
    I was hesitant about this site reaching out to me with a representative because I thought they wanted to up-sell me. But the rep listened my needs for this season and gave me good recommendations that were definitely in my price range and exactly tailored to what I want from this next season. Im stoked.

    Really straightforward and honest.
    After a brief chat he told me that the setup I already own was perfect for what I wanted to be doing. Didn't try to sell me on anything. I immediately had him help me get the perfect board and binding setup for my wife. Great service and helped me with research and personal experience. Thanks!
