Who's ridden outside of the US / Canada?

Maybe this belongs in another forum, but it looks like this one gets the most traffic.

Just wanted to see how many of you here have experience snowboarding outside the country, and which places are on your list? Which places have you been to and recommend / don't recommend? Or okay, maybe even outside of your local mountain?

Outside of the US and Canada I have only been to Verbier Switzerland, which was awesome... except for the broken wrist.



I am hoping to check out the French Alps this season... maybe Val d'Isère if plans work out.

I go to Hokkaido every winter to get 40+ days in. Backcountry for about 30 days. The rest at a resort that lets you go off-piste. Then again, I go to Hokkaido because I am from Taiwan, where it doesn't snow. If I was still living in the US, I would still go to Hokkaido every year for their super dry powder.
