Big Boulder has nice wide green trails, but a beginner snowboarder needs to learn to get off a chair lift in order to ride them. There are no carpet lifts on the greens. The carpet lift is restricted to the ski school area.
There is one great Blue trail: Bunny's Elbow, which splits into two. It is long and fun with a lot of dips. It would be great if there was another blue trail on the mountain.
Several years ago, Big Boulder had more greens, but they have been converted to terrain parks. The Tannenbaum blue trail is also a good place to learn for beginners, but the terrain park are not clearly marked.
Big Boulder is great a night. No crowds at all. Overall, I think BB is more of a terrain park mountain, being that they have 6 terrain park areas, but only 2 greens, 1 blue and 3 blacks.
