I ride alone a lot because I enjoy the peace of it. I like pushing at my own pace, listening to music and enjoying my surroundings. If you're worried about it you could always try to meet up with another poster on here depending on where you're going. I know broken nose is looking for some friends/babysitters.

Yea it's allot of fun to have a crew to ride with but honestly I don't mind cranking up the tunes , putting my foot\board up on the chair and smoking a fatty all by myself.......good situation for photography too I hate feeling like I'm slowing everyone down or having to race down the hill to catch up because I stopped to take a nice photo of something cool.

Solo riding in powder, sublime.

No tunes for me I prefer the sound of snow under board and the mountains.

I'll generally make some some new friends and do a lap of two together before getting back to myself.

Learning new tricks and focusing on improving is just easier alone for me.

I do ride with a few buddies often and its nice to have both.

Well as you can tell from my username, I'm not against riding alone.

When I started out as a teenager, one of the main reasons I rode was to hang out and meet new people as I was a bit shy. And I still like riding with my friends... but I've gotten to the point that I don't have to always ride with people.

In addition to the people at my winter house. There are a bunch of people I see riding the park every weekend and we all kind of know each other and might trade a few words on the lift or at the top of the park... but I don't need other people to enjoy snowboarding.
