Five Rad Snowboard Resorts You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

A look at some of Europe's hidden gems

Powder: it's what we all dream about riding on the regs. There are few things as stripped back and enjoyable in life as putting in some turns down an untouched face blanketed with with a couple feet of pristine, light powder snow. You're salivating now right?

You know they’re out there. The tiny, super-quiet resorts in the middle of nowhere that you’ve never heard of but will likely result in some of the sickest, purest days of snowboarding you have all season. They’re the hidden gems of the Alps and the places that are passed from person to person by word of mouth rather than flashy marketing campaigns and TV commercials.

We put our heads together at Onboard to come up with this list of 5 resorts in the Alps that we think are well worth checking out. You may not have come across them before but you’ll have to take our word for it that they all have a little something special.
