Best places to go snowboarding in Austria

#1. St Anton, Austria

By far the best freeriders resort in Austria and backed up by a world class village. It all comes at quite a price and the British invasian is leaving it less Austrian every year.

#2. Ischgl, Austria

Ischgl has plenty of good wide intermediate slopes, and hidden off-piste stashes. A super fast lift system, a season that lasts until May, great terrain park, and the most full on apres in the Alps, completes the package.

#6. Obertauern, Austria

It's definitely worth a holiday for people who like to smell powder every day and don't wanna hike too much. Freestylers will have fun in the park, especialy intermidate ones who complane about too small kickers and obsticles but wouldn't go over the big mamas (6m high kicker) either.
