2013 Resort Poll

SNOWBOARDER’S GUIDE TO BEST PARKS, PIPES, & RESORTS

For 12 years TransWorld SNOWboarding’s Resort Poll has ranked the top spots across North America with your help. Once again, you told us which resorts killed it. We ran the numbers, and the results are in. But after you see this season’s picks, the next step is planning your trip and getting the most out of it. That means rounding up crucial details on where you want to go. We’re talking the absolute need-to-know info like when park features are at their peak, the best time of day to ride which park, where to head when the pow is deep, and, perhaps most importantly, where the cheap beers are. To get you to the goods we tapped pros like Sage Kotsenburg, Eric Willett, Luke Mitrani, Chris Bradshaw, and more, plus local up-and-comers, and terrain park managers at each resort. Then we added Editor’s Picks, drawing on our team’s extensive collection of core shots and bar tabs, sampled from east to west and up into Canada to present categories like Best Freeriding and Best Nightlife. Now it’s simple: Read this guide and know before you go.
