The HomeTown Hero is quite popular. It has a wide range of sizes, from 146 to a massive 168. It's a versatile board. The width provides buoyancy in deep snow. On the top, there is an imitation of wood, plastic with wood fibers. There's a transition to a turquoise print on the tail, and the base is brightly colored. The... Read more

The Burton Hometown Hero Splitboard has delivered many great experiences for me in the backcountry.

Ideal for

  • Incredible for off-piste snowboarding and camber dominant for more responsiveness while carving.
  • Riders looking for a lightweight package to take into the backcountry.
Not ideal for
  • The grip on hardpack wasn't the best with this splitboard.

Burton took their all mountain ripper from the family tree line and split it! The Hometown Hero but Burton is a fantastic do it all board.

Ideal for
  • A fantastic hard charging board that can handle the backs and deep pow but can cruise the groomers as well.
  • Hiking to a favorite secret spot
  • Long hard carving turns to lay down some beautiful "S" turns
Not ideal for
  • It's a split board, not the regular hometown hero
  • Get the split board binding (burton hitchhiker) not the regular bindings.
  • Pack boots if the plan is to hike.

Definitely One Board Quiver

Originally posted at on Apr 17, 2024
Been riding 39 years now and could easily say the HH 160 is one of my top 3 boards, the other two being the Stungun and the 2nd gen Fish. I ended up riding it all year, the board is comfortable at speed, great shape and waist width, great in the fresh stuff and love carving lines on the fresh groomers. Surprised how light it felt, perfect setup with Cartels

New Board

Originally posted at on Mar 7, 2024
I haven’t owned a new board since 1999 and I took this board out to Breckenridge with me a couple of weeks ago and I could not believe the difference between the two products. The board was absolutely amazing getting from edge to edge and I love the new bindings as well. I would highly recommend this board.

Extremely knowledgeable about the equipment.
5 /5
I have been skiing 60+ years. Although most of my skiing in recent years has been Masters Alpine Racing, I have done many heli-ski trips to Alaska, BC, Iceland, Europe and Rockies. I like all sorts of skiing besides racing, such as moguls, powder and just on-piste cruising. Although I have lots of skis, I did not have an appropriate pair for off-piste skiing and crud. Luke's description of skis was on target for me. I feel confident that he understood my ability and needs and described exactly the skis that I needed for a trip to Portillo, Chile this August.

Sarah is amazing.
5 /5
I have quite a few Sarahs in my life. Sarah Caldwell is now by far the most important. She taught me everything I now know about snowboards and armed me with tons of info on different places and ways to ride. She was available to talk at a moments notice. I trust her opinion on all things snowboarding now, and I cannot wait to try my new board. If I ever need to buy new bindings or boots, I can only hope I get to hear from her again. Promote at the first opportunity.

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.
