Like said before, ride hard and you will want to watch TV and crash after dinner. I travel and ride alone. I get to avoid other peoples bitching or hold backs. I like riding with friends, but last year I realized I spent too much time "waiting for friends" so I couldn't progress. After that, I concentrated on me and now love riding alone. Turn on some tunes and go.

Success on a solo trip....make friends where you can. I solo ride plenty of times. I usually make friends on the lift, at Apres, or in the hot tub later in the eve. Ask barteners at the resort where to go for good, non-tourist happy hour. Or, ask where to snag a good tourist catch of tail. Chat people up at the bars....don't try to get them to tell you where the stash is, if you're laid-back and into just talking and show genuine enthusiam, you'll be amazed at how people love to adopt tourons. Disregard the anti-social crew here, you can ride hard from 8-4:30 and still have energy to enjoy some social interaction later in the day. However, I wouldn't suggest a 2:30 am rage on your first or second trip of the night. But the night before leaving.....it helps you sleep on the plane.

Go sit down at a bar and have a drink or two, and Im sure you will find someone to talk to. Also, like someone else said if you wake up early and ride hard all day you will be ready for bed by like ten o clock anyways.

While I have never gone on trips by myself, I almost always ride alone. I'm new to the northeast so I know very few people who ride, which leads to me riding by myself 98% of the time. If you're friendly and outgoing it is amazing all the interesting people you can meet on lifts. I also tend to hit the resort bar mid-day and there are always people in there stoked to talk about the day of riding, especially if the conditions are good.
