I'd love to develop my freestyle skills, which resorts have the best range of parks for all abilities?

Many resorts have cottoned on in recent years to the need for different parks for different abilities, making progression slightly less daunting than before. Previously small jumps were often built as an afterthought alongside the big jumps used by the pros, creating a somewhat intimidating atmosphere for those just starting out.

One of the first resorts in Europe to embrace this philosophy was Avoriaz in the vast Portes du Soleil ski area. There are now two terrain parks, catering for absolute beginners right up to seasoned pros as well as the world-famous Stash by Burton, which mixes natural and man-made features in the woods by Linderets. Another resort that would suit you perfectly is Livigno in Italy. The Mottolino Park is huge and has 62 obstacles and lines ranging from XS to XL, all of which are spread across a vast swath of mountain, with each level feeling like its own self-contained park.
