What are the best snowboarding resorts?

  • Telluride, CO
  • Aspen, CO.

The scenery will stun you and the night life with thrill you.

   
When can I snowboard when it is less expensive than during my kids school vacations?

The Time

Some of the best times of year to ride are early winter or late fall, and early spring. The prices at snowboard resorts are lower, and you have better and longer hours of sunlight.

The theme for spring and fall boarding is "Go North, or Go to Europe." There isn't a lot of snow in New Hampshire in November, but there is in Canada. Take the kids to British Columbia during Thanksgiving, and it will be a weekend you'll always remember.

   
Is snowboarding a popular vacation in other countries?

The Ultimate

If you are lucky enough to afford the time and expense of traveling outside of the United States, some of the best backcountry snowboarding is in Europe.

Make your snowboard travel plans for Switzerland, France, or Germany, and you will not be disappointed. Make sure you have the right gear and packs, and you won't be left out in the cold.

   
Where shouldn't I snowboard in the U. S.?

The Bad

There are still those ski resorts that refuse to become snowboarding resort destinations. Hopefully this ban on snowboarding will not last much longer at these mountains, especially considering the demographic and fast growing economic resource they are cutting out, but for now, don't go to:

  • Alta, Utah
  • Deer Valley, Utah
  • Taos, New Mexico
  • Mad River Glen, VT

   
Where should I snowboard in the U. S.?

The Good

There are many traditional ski resorts in the Eastern U.S. that have joined in support of the snowboarding crowd by building some of the best half pipes and terrain parks anywhere.

Some of the best snowboard resorts not to miss in the Eastern U.S. are:

  • Killington, VT
  • Mountain Creek, NJ
  • Mt. Snow, VT
  • Okemo, VT
  • Stowe, VT
  • Stratton, VT
  • Sugarloaf, ME
  • Sunday River, ME
