I've taken a lot of solo trips to VT snowboarding and had a blast! Riding with friends is fun but when it's just you you won't have to worry about what run every one wants to do or takin breaks. You have your own schedule once you get your iPod on you'll get into a zone where your just cruising! I have on occasion met some people riding the lift and did a few runs with.. Personally you should do it and if you find that your not feeling it then just do day trips !
