From family friendly terrain parks to pipes that host World Cup competitions, Utah's resorts have something for every style of snowboarder. There are wide open bowls, cliffs drops, chutes and glades for the burgeoning advanced riders while beginners can appreciate the first timer chairs at Park City Mountain Resort, Snowbasin and Solitude Ski resorts.
Where to Go
Unfortunately, Utah is home to two of the three resorts in the nation that ban snowboarding. Perhaps Alta and Deer Valley resorts figure that snowboarders have enough options; like the nine other areas in northern Utah - most within an hour of each other - that welcome riders.
Local snowboarders see Brighton as their own. The shred capital of Utah is a playground for all levels of riders looking to spin, jump, and flip from tabletops, jumps, boxes, and rails all day long and into the night. Park City snowboarding, however, earns its own kuddos from some of the world's best snowboarders.
Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons both are regularly recognized for their world-class terrain park and halfpipe designs in the top snowboarding publications in the world.
