In 2015, more than five million people participated in snowboarding, making it one of the fastest-growing winter sports. The very best places to snowboard vary depending on the different experience levels and preferences of those who participate in the sport.

Freeriders tend to favor fresh, white snow, freestylers prefer rail parks where they can practice jumps and carvers tend to prefer land that is well-groomed and marked to increase the speed of their ride. No matter what you prefer, this list of the top four places to snowboard in the United States is sure to have something for everyone.

Over 370 inches of snow fall per year on the mountain. This allows for a long season and plenty of snow for freeriders who want to mark their own trail. The high winds combine with the snow to create wind-lips that will make any boarder happy.

The resort offers a luxurious snowboarding with an attentive staff, heated buses and warm chocolate chip cookies after 3:00 each afternoon. The steeps and rollers are great for those who enjoy freeriding. The ski school and instructors will be able to help boarders of all abilities to perfect their skills.
