Mayrhofen Ski Resort is one of the top skiing and snowboarding destinations in Europe

Picking a snow resort to head to for the winter is like picking lunch from an endless menu – there’s just so much to choose from. And it’s not just the resort you get your pick of, there are hotels at the base of different mountains, all-inclusive or half-board and whether to opt for a luxury lodge or humble hostel; you could drive yourself a bit mad going through your options but hopefully the Snowfusion & Extremepie list of the top 3 Snowboarding destinations in Europe will help you narrow it down just a bit.

Mayrhofen, Austria
Mayrhofen tops our list because it’s got the best of everything – superb location, excellent facilities for everyone from the novice to the seasoned pro, and thanks to its proximity to the Hintertux Glacier it offers all year-round boarding too. The resort is characterized by its laid-back and relaxed vibe and recognized for the superb Vans Penken Park; the best to be found in Europe.  If you’re after a resort that offers more than the top-quality free riding terrain to really enjoy your own on-piste adventures then this is the one for you. Mayrhofen is world renowned for its additional events so if you fancy a little time away from your own snow bombing downhill, then you can enjoy watching others while you enjoy a beer slope side.

      Born and raised as a New York Yankees fan in The Bronx, Colavito was playing semipro baseball before he was a teenager and dropped out of high school at 16 after his sophomore year to pursue a professional career. The major league rule at the time said a player could not sign with a pro team until his high school class graduated, but after sitting out for one year, Colavito was allowed to sign at age 17.
