Top Ski Resorts for Snowboarding

Snowboarding the glades at Whistler Blackcomb (Paul Morrisson/Whistler Blackcomb)

When ‘boarders first carved onto the alpine scene, the sport was greeted with the same scorn a security guard reserves for a skateboarder. Fast-forward to the 21st century. The sport’s been around for over four decades and its various incarnations are now a signature inclusion at the winter Olympics, not to mention that the sport has revitalized the ski industry and introduced urban-chic slope-side fashion sense. Simply put, snowboarding is here to stay, and the resorts profiled below are the best places for the ‘boarder in you yearning to break free. Some have sick terrain parks and towering half pipes, others offer glade runs tailor-made for tight turns, while still others offer open-bowl pistes for wide, snow-spraying arcs. Prime conditions, accessibility for all levels, knee-deep powder…it’s all here.
