Best Places to Go Snowboarding

Snowboarding has become incredibly popular in the past decade even among those that aren’t typically fond of winter sports.  It is an adrenaline rush racing down the mountain.  On top of the adrenaline rush there are some incredible resorts where you can learn to snowboard.  If you want to try your hand at snowboarding or you are already an experienced snowboarder then here are the best places to go snowboarding.

Colorado

Colorado is probably the capital of snowboarding resorts in the US.  Colorado has great snow and beautiful mountains, it is hands down one of the best places to snowboard in the US.  Aspen or Vail are probably the two most popular but there are dozens of other resort towns that you can try.  There is a choice here for everyone from five star resorts to much more economical choices.

Utah

It is arguably a toss-up between Utah and Colorado when it comes to great places to snowboarding.  Park City is world famous  and one of the most beautiful.  Park City played host to the 2002 Winter Olympics and it now serves as a training ground for elite winter athletes including snowboarders.  If you want to find some challenging runs then this is the place to be.

Whistler

Found in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, Canada Whistler also played host to the 2010 Winter Olympics and it draws in millions of tourists every year who want to hit the slopes here.  With dozens of resorts to choose from it is open to all levels of snowboarders from the newbies to veteran’s who get flown in to their location for a really challenging run. Whistler along with nearby Lake Louise have some of the best snowboarding in the world.  Here check out some of their runs.

Squaw Valley

Heading over to California for the last place on our list, you want to add Squaw Valley to your list of places to go boarding.  While there are slopes here suitable for a beginner it really was designed for the more experienced crowd.  If you can hit there during the week you will find it a lot less crowded, the place does fill up with tourists on the weekends.

These are some of the best places to go snowboarding in North America, but there are also plenty of destinations across Europe as well.  You can snowboard at almost every resort that offers skiing.  As snowboarding grows in popularity more ski hill resorts are offering snowboarding runs too.
