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!!!!
ditto. None of my elderly friends go boarding and / or skiing anymore. So I ski, board, whatever pretty much alone and watch the moving picture that is life.
