Almost all ski and snow resorts have a so-called “Bunny Hill”. This is a gentle wide slope of 10 to 15 degrees with well-groomed snow and a wide long run out. Often known as a “nursery slope” in Europe, the bunny hill is specifically built for beginners (so don’t worry about the rapid traffic of advanced boarders and skiers). Bunny hills typically have a rope tow or T-bar lift to make it easy for you to go back to the top. Once you’re on the Bunny Hill, it’s time to start the exciting road of learning how to snowboard.
