When it comes to snowboarding, hitting the right slopes is essential. Brit boarder Billy Morgan gives us the location low-down.

Whether you are looking to hit the slopes in Europe or in the US, Billy Morgan knows best. Here are his top five locations from around the world. 

1. Mayrhofen, Austria
Mayrhofen’s got a lot of good terrain, making it a general-all round good place no matter what your level. And the town’s great too, which means the après ski is almost as fun as the riding. 

A great place to test your limits, regardless of how good you are.

2. Flachauwinkl, Austria

Great name, great park. It’s not too far from Mayrhofen but the Absolut Park here deserves its own entry. It’s my favourite. It’s epic. I competed there for the first time last year and I haven’t had as much fun doing a week’s snowboarding for ages – and that’s saying something.

3. Breckenridge, Colorado, USA

This resort has the biggest jumps earliest in the season, so I always make a beeline for it. And it’s generally just awesome most of the time.

4. Keystone, Colorado, USA

Another total favourite. It’s great. Their rail lines are always up early and they always have different, imaginative features about which makes it super fun.

5. Morzine, France

I did my first ever three seasons in Morzine, my first years away, so that’s where I learned a hell of a lot. It’s the perfect place to start out with enough to test you when you improve.
