Best resorts for snowboarders

Best resorts snowboarders - much to consider

Choosing the right destination when booking a holiday in the mountains is rarely an easy task but it is perhaps even more important for snowboarders than it is for skiers. The reason for this is simple - if you choose a resort with lots of shallow slopes and flat spots, a snowboarder will forever find themselves having to unbind and either walk to the next downhill section or push themselves along with one leg still in the binding. Meanwhile skiers will simply use their poles to push themselves along.

To make things even more difficult, there are some resorts which would be considered very well suited to snowboarders but still home to those flat-spots that boarders try their best to avoid. A little bit of careful planning using a piste map will help negate this issue.

In terms of great destinations for snowboarders, whether you are a complete beginner trying to make your first turns, or an expert hunting for a fresh stash of powder there is a resort out there for you. All it takes is a little research. Even easier would be to speak to one of our expert advisors at Alpine Answers who will be able to point you in the right direction.
