The World Snowboard Guide (WSG) was first published in 1996 by Tony Brown to critical acclaim. The first book covered Austria, France, Italy and Switzerland, and every year it’s got bigger and better. Nowadays over 60 countries and 1000 resorts are represented, and our 11th edition is full colour for the first time.

WSG 11th editionUnlike other publications that just pay lip service to snowboarding, each resort in the WSG has been reviewed by experienced snowboarders and aimed directly for snowboarders.

We produce a no nonsense independent authoritative no holds barred view on each resort; if the place is crap we'll tell you. If you're likely to be snowploughed by face painted skiers we'll let you know. We tell you where the best places are whether your bag is freeriding or you're a pipe junkie.

The online version of the guide appeared in 2000, and has undergone various updates with plenty more to make sure the World Snowboard Guide remains the best source of knowledge when planning your next snowboarding trip.

The book and the website are owned and run by wsg-media.
