The Telegraph(London publication) thinks so as well as Whistler (#3) and Revelstoke (#9) made the cut for the top 10 snowboarding resorts in the world. Not too shabby, Revelstoke really caught me by surprise, I guess I must get up there soon. Here is what they had to say about the two:
3. Whistler, Canada
Home to more pro snowboarders than anywhere else on the planet. Whistler and Blackcomb mountains are a boarder’s dream: trees, chutes, bowls, parks and perfect pistes. The town itself feels slightly artificial and twee but it is on the mountain that Whistler distinguishes itself from its competitors. Backcountry riding – accessed by snowmobile – has become very popular.
9. Revelstoke, Canada
Revelstoke Mountain Resort, located in British Columbia in the Selkirk Mountains, has opened for its second season and is still a work in progress – but might be worth a visit before the crowds get there. It gets on average 40-60ft of snow and offers North America’s greatest continuous vertical drop. Although it is very much a fledgling resort in terms of snow-park development, it offers extensive cat-boarding – riding caterpillar-tracked snowcats to access miles of untracked powder.
