Well my fiance and I do go snowboarding on the weekends in the winter, but also on a couple weeknights after work.
On the weekends we don't really need to take advantage of extra time on the mountain cuz we can go at any time (40 min away), but for the weeknights, so that we can get as much time in as possible, this is what we do (because the mountain is 30 min from my work and it closes around 9pm):
He gets out of work around 3pm, goes home, showers (he has a dirty job), then takes off for the mountain and meets there with a friend of ours. I work till 5pm and I take a bag of all my gear etc and my snowboard with me and keep the snowboard in the car obviously and my bag of gear under my desk. Around 4:50pm I sneak off to the bathroom to change and am done by 5pm and head out the door to the mountain!
We SHOULD bring our own food to save money and time, but the lines aren't bad at the mountain at all for food (Washusett Mountain in Massachusetts). We grab a bite to eat there for dinner.
So I guess that's the only thing we do to get as much time as we can on the mountain. Go on weeknights after work as well as weekends and bring my gear to work, so that I arrive ready. I put my boots on once I park at the mountain tho cuz I mean.... driving in those? No thanks.
