While most of us die-hards know the popular places to ride, there are many spots that a lot of people wouldn’t know you could shred. If riding new locales and venturing out is your thing, here are four places you wouldn’t think about riding, but should definitely consider!

Flagstaff, Arizona: Yes, Arizona, as in one of the warmest states in the United States. Arizona actually has some sweet mountains in the northern parts. Located right outside of Flagstaff, and about 70 miles south of the Grand Canyon, Arizona Snowbowl is where the locals and college students go to shred. Opened in 1938, Arizona Snowbowl is one of the oldest, continually run ski areas in America.

With open, long runs and 260 inches of annual snowfall, the Snowbowl gives Arizonians and visitors a true winter fix. The resort has already been getting some decent snowfall, so it’s looking to be a good season up in the San Francisco Peaks. Of course, there’s snowmaking when the resort isn’t getting the natural stuff.

Snowbowl also has a park with plenty of features for all abilities. The resort has all of the amenities you’d find at any major resort, and there is lodging for guests, as well. One of the best things about Snowbowl is the price of its lift tickets. With a $59 all-day price tag or $49 for afternoon (12-4pm), it’s more affordable than most places.

Burtongirls.com Gets a Makeover with a Completely New Site Design

BURLINGTON, VT (October 3, 2012) Burton Snowboards today unveiled a brand new version of burtongirls.com – the online community exclusively created by women for women. Completely redesigned on every level, burtongirls.com is now loaded with more tools, content and features than ever, all aimed at sharing the snowboarding lifestyle.

“Burtongirls.com is a place where women and girls can experience the snowboard culture through fun, inspiring and creative content,” stated Burton President Donna Carpenter. “Our hope is to not only inspire our existing global audience of girls who love snowboarding, but also to attract a new demographic of girls to the brand through compelling and relevant year-round content that speaks to them.”

Every aspect of the burtongirls.com website has been thoughtfully restyled for this year, with a cool new platform of reinventing itself for each specific season year-round (fall, winter, spring, summer). The fall edition is live now and packed with content and photos inspired by autumn foliage, food and activities. Check out this beautiful launch video and digital lookbook featuring pro snowboarders and burtongirls.com contributors Hannah Teter, Kimmy Fasani and Gabi Viteri to get a taste. Also new for this year is a ‘Contributor Picks’ section, where contributors will share a round-up of their favorite clothes, accessories, music, movies, books and more for each current season. And finally, new on the site is an interactive shopping tool where girls can shop the styles right from the lookbook itself.

And that’s just what’s new. Coming back for the second year are some of the best parts of burtongirls.com, which include the content sections entitled ‘Snowboarding’, ‘Travel’, ‘Health & Beauty’, ‘Style & Culture’ and ‘Après’. Also returning are many of the same amazing contributors who will provide content to the site year-round. First up is a group of contributors called ‘Burtonistas’ from the world of fashion, entertainment and snowboarding who include actress Joy Bryant, model Noot Seear and DJ Jasmine Solano to name a few. Then there is a group of contributors called ‘The Team’, which is made up of Burton pro riders Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter, Gabi Viteri, Kimmy Fasani and more. And rounding out the contributor roster is the ‘Inner Voice’ group, featuring a passionate group of women who work at Burton.

“If you’re a world traveler, foodie, daredevil, music lover, fashion lover, snowboard enthusiast or if you’re inspired by any of the above, then burtongirls.com is for you,” said burtongirls.com returning contributor and DJ, Jasmine Solano. “Checking out the posts, contributor picks and Instagram feed on burtongirls.com makes you feel like you’re hanging with your girls and getting all their insider tips. I love it!”

Finally, burtongirls.com features many new site upgrades all focused on user experience, including a new search tool, improved navigation, and a responsive design across desktop, tablet and mobile.
