Snowboarding | Day Tripper Gear

If you want the best places to snowboard, there are many great options. Here are some of the top ones to consider:


The US is noted for having lots of good snowboarding options on either side of the country. In Vermont and New York, there is Killington and Whiteface, respectively. Out west, you will find the ever popular Breckenridge and Park City. Just make sure you avoid them during weekends and holidays, unless you want to spend a lot of time waiting in lines.

In Wyoming, you will find Jackson Hole. Alaska deserves a special note, because it is one of the top backcountry snowboarding locations on the planet. If you are tired of resorts, long lines and groomed trails, then Alaska is the place for you. There are many unexplored locations in this state that have never been snowboarded. If you are into untouched powder, then this is the place for you.


Canada has some of the top snowboarding anywhere on the planet, on both sides of the country. Whistler/Blackcomb is certainly one of the top places for snowboarder in the country, although you should also check out Silver and Apex. If you want incredible scenery, then try Banff in the Canadian Rockies.


The Swiss Alps are certainly one of the top places for backcountry snowboarding in the world. If groomed trails and comfortable lodging are more your thing, then you will find tons of great resorts in Italy and 

South America

Argentina and Chile both excellent locations to snowboard, due to their close proximity to the Andes. One of the great things about snowboarding in South America is the fact that its' seasons are opposite North America. Therefore, if you live up north and get the urge to snowboard in the warmer months, then South America is the place to go.
