Is it common for you guys to hit the slopes solo? I find when I go I have a lot of fun shooting the shit with my buddies on the chair lift. I would find it boring if I were alone.

Anyone else?
I ride almost exclusively alone! Didn't start off like that by choice,.. just got into it late in life & don't know anybody else that boards or skis.

It might be different if I were out west somewhere with multi mile runs & off piste to explore, but here in MI. with it's 90 sec.-4 min. long runs, I'm OK going solo! The only person I've ever really ridden with is Sabatoa from our regional forum, and I honestly never saw him ride.

I'd start down the run first & when I got to the lift, there's "Ol' Speedy Gonzales" standin' there waiting on me!! Never even saw him go by!

(...besides, every time I try to make a friend on the lift, they JUMP OFF!! Weirdest damn thing!!!!)
