Thanks to those massive ski areas that we were talking about earlier, the purely statistical chances of scoring freshies for days are way higher in Europe.

Also, rather than everyone flocking to one resort like in some spots in North America – where people will happily line up at 6am to be the first out onto the powder we might add – the countless small, hidden resorts across Europe mean that folk spread out way more. And unless you’re in Chamonix or equally freeride haven, your every day European gaper-types just aren’t as powder hungry as their North American equivalents. All of this, of course, adds up to way more fresh tracks and faceshots for you and I.

Yep, snowboarding in Europe rules.

We could probably rattle off another twenty reasons why snowboarding in Europe kicks ass but the truth is, it’s the weekend and we’re gonna get out there ourselves. Let us know if there’s anything we missed in the comments section below. We’ll add the best ones to this post.
