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.

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.
