Snowboarding and travel go hand in hand.
Lots of us have a local mountain, and all of us have a favourite – but if you’ve never seen what other resorts, ranges, and even continents can offer, you’re still not seeing the whole picture.
It’s a big world, with lots of sweeping generalities – California has its epic parks, Japan is powder central, Austria is the home of rowdy après – but only by looking a little closer will you get a feel for exactly which resort is the best one to make tracks for in 2017/18.
“Each of our resort reviews has harnessed local knowledge and insider tips to give you the very best information”
That’s why every resort in our guide is rated on the four P’s: (Park, Powder, Pistes and Parties) to see how it measures up to your own style.
Each resort review has also harnessed local knowledge and insider tips to give you the best information about where specifically to go. Want to know which lift to head for early doors after a dump, or the best place to get a beer come day’s end? It’s all here. We’ve also flagged up the best SWISS routes for getting you there – and since taking a snowboard bag is free of charge, you’ll be able to come prepared.
Park rats, powder hounds, night owls… whatever your species, here’s where to start planning your next adventure.
