Top 10 Most Popular

Even in the well groomed resorts of North America, top snowboard resorts are not necessarily the same as ski resorts.

What makes a snow mountain into one of the best North American snowboard mountains? A great snow park, modern lifts (few button/drag lifts), easy access to off piste and many snowboarders list a lively apres ski scene is also high on the list for a top snowboard resort... the list goes on... so below we've put together a list of the top 10 snowboard resorts in North America.

Many winter resorts are great for snowboarding - you can check how good a mountain is for snowboarders by looking up the marks-out-of-ten in the Sno resort descriptions - but if you want to know which are the very best snowboard resorts in North America, look no further!

Best North American snowboard resorts

Encompassing an old cowboy town, mountain resort, 2,500 acres of inbound terrain and almost limitless backcountry, Jackson Hole should definitely be high up the bucket list for any passionate skier. It was voted “Best Overall Resort in North America” by SKI Magazine - if that’s not enough of a reason to visit, we don’t know what is.

The clouds that descend on Park City after crossing the neighbouring desert drop some of the best snow on earth onto the varied 3,300 acres of terrain. Group this with a vibrant and exciting town and you have the makings of an outstanding ski holiday for every type of snow lover.

With its own mountain range and signature champagne powder, Steamboat resort is seriously world class (a record number of Olympians call it home). Ski Town USA - the legendary Cowboy town of Steamboat Springs - is a few miles down the mountain and we love its friendly locals, proper pubs and unpretentious vibe.

You’ll be hard pushed to find someone who hasn’t heard of Vail. Rivalling Aspen as the resort of choice for the uber rich and super famous, it’s the 2<sup>nd</sup> largest ski area in the USA, has a vibrant cosmopolitan town and offers an outstanding visitor experience - one of the best in the world.

“Prestige” is probably the word that best describes Aspen Snowmass. This is one of the most renowned resorts worldwide, with 4 ski areas, exclusive dining and après, high end shopping and the chance to rub shoulders with the A Listers. If you can afford Aspen Snowmass, there are few places to rival this exquisite destination.

We love Breck - an outstanding, all-round resort with a friendly atmosphere, heaps to do and infectiously bubbly après scene. It’s the birthplace of competitive freestyle, has some of the highest quality skiing and snowboarding in the States and is repeatedly rated as one of the best ski resorts in the world.

Consistently voted near, if not at the top of almost every skier’s dream destination as well as most official rankings, Whistler has planted its roots very deeply and is there to stay. This monolithic resort has hosted events like the 2010 Olympics and continues to draw in athletes, holiday makers and anyone else who visits with an intense, immeasurable and undiminishing pull.

When everyone thinks about the world’s biggest ski area, they immediately think of the Three Valleys, which works in Lake Tahoe’s favour as it keeps lift queues and piste density down. Add this to well over 20,000 acres of the most varied skiable terrain, Las Vegas style après, Californian sun and breath-taking views, and you have a truly epic ski area.

Family-focussed and Quebec’s skiing capital, this is one of North America’s oldest, most loved resorts. Whether it’s the brightly coloured village, Franco-Canadian atmosphere or another thing entirely, there’s something seriously enchanting about Mont Tremblant – a ski town like no other where maple taffies meet Savoie fondues.

Kimberley Alpine Resort has the sunniest skiing in British Columbia, with 4 different sections including the most gladed terrain in North America (over 500 acres). A friendly mountain village near the quirky, Bavarian themed mountain town of Kimberley, its lesser known status in the ski world leaves gloriously crowd-free slopes.
