World's Best Snowboard Half-Pipes

The Super Duper Pipe at Mammoth Mountain in California.
Mammoth Mountain

Half-pipes have evolved a lot in the past decade. As riders got more extreme – so did the half-pipes. They are bigger, steeper and taller than they were to begin with. Kidzworld surveyed the globe and found the tightest half-pipes the earth has to offer!

Best Half-Pipes – Whistler, BC (Canada)

Whistler’s Blackcomb Mountain is home of the world-famous Superpipe. As its name suggests, the pipe is indeed super and is only for the most talented riders. It's 450 feet long, with a 17-foot radius and is 16.5 feet high! Snowboarding stud Shaun White won the Superpipe event here in the Global X Games in 2003. So if you wanna follow in his footsteps, you're gonna have to head up north and start practicing!

Best Half-Pipes – Mammoth Mountain, California (USA)

For a snowboarder who enjoys riding a half-pipe, going to Mammoth Mountain is like a kid going to Disneyland for the first time. On top of having an impressive Superpipe, the terrain park also boasts the world’s largest half-pipe with the Super Duper Pipe. It is 600 feet long and 18 feet high! Add 400 inches of snow per year and a long snowboarding season and Mammoth is the place to be for snowboardin’ junkies.

Best Half-Pipes – Saas-Fee (Switzerland)

A real world class, Saas-Fee is said to be the best place to snowboard in Europe. The Saas-Fee resort, which is located in the Swiss Alps, boasts three, 300-foot half-pipes and a superpipe. However, they are known to play lame music around the half-pipes - so remember to bring your iPod!

Best Half-Pipes – Breckenridge, Colorado (USA)

The Freeway Superpipe is one of the most popular and best constructed half-pipes in the world. Nearly a decade old, the Freeway Superpipe is 455 feet long and nearly 17 feet high. This world class half-pipe in the Rockies hosts a number of competitions like the Chevrolet U.S. Snowboard Grand Prix.
