15 of the Best Ski and Snowboard Resorts for Off-Piste

The best backcountry from the Alps, North America and beyond!

It should be no surprise to see the home of one freeriding’s premier competitions on the list. The Verbier Extreme attracts the best and the bravest skiers and snowboarders from around the globe to tackle the notoriously rocky and icy Bec des Rosses. The north face of the peak is generally reserved for experts and given the frequency of avalanches shouldn’t be attempted without the right kit or expertise.

For a more gentle introduction, base yourself around the top of the Mont Gele cable car. The car serves no runs – just challenging off-piste. The Col des Mines is a classic run that has to be tackled if you visit.
