Default Coming to America from Europe - where is the BEST freestyle place to go?

I'm planning a trip to North America with some friends from Europe in mid-February.

Generally, resorts in Europe don't cater very well for snowboarders. The sport is MUCH bigger in North America. In particular, the parks in Europe are nothing compared to the ones in North America (I watch too many snowboarding videos).

So, where is the best resort in North America for park riding and why?

Thank you!

Breck, Keystone, Aspen, Park City, Mammoth are the main resorts with world class parks that I can think of. If you are going pure park, Colorado is going to be hard to beat. For more free ride oriented stuff, I'd go with Salt Lake areas in general, Tahoe, and Aspen. Tahoe has some good parks too, I just don't know who the heavy hitters are there. North Star and Heavenly would be my guess and maybe boring (Boreal) hill...

freestyle really ain't my thing, but Park City Mountain Resort definitely has a world class park and a legendary super pipe. Many of the biggest names in the sport ride and call PCMR their home base.

Breckenridge has a pretty sick park too. Buttermilk too (home of the x-games).
