I think its very different. Even a long soccer game doesn't last for more than 2 hours, and unless you're center-half back, you have a pretty good bit of down time.
Compare this to being on the mountain for 6 or 7 hours of riding. Even when I am in snowboard shape and fully rested, I am usually beat by time the lifts stop running.

|bassholic||I'm good enough to hit the mountain now after drinking the night before. Last year a no no. It's no different than partying all night then playing soccer on a few hours sleep.|

|abadidol||For me its all about riding, the feeling I get when making a turn. Mind is completely clear. It makes no difference to me if I ride with people or not, I enjoy it equally. The party after is just what I do on a weekend anyway, it has no bearing on my motivation or enjoyment of riding.|

I'm a die hard rider. Like you Sleev-les I'm in bed by midnight regardless of what kind of partying I'm doing. Even If I don't sleep (hehe) my body is resting and that is good enough in my mind
I'm there to ride as well and that is all that matters to me and in fact if I couldn't even handle drinking, smoking, etc the day before I would kick it all no second thoughts.
I think there are people who party because they snowboard and there are the other type who snowboard for the parties. Just my thoughts, because if you really love the pow and the adrenaline and wicked shots you can get, then why drink them all away the night before? I guess only because it is more of a lifestyle for that person, which there is nothing wrong with that.
I mean my sickest partying is always done due to snowboarding so I'm not gonna lie that on a week trip I'll get comatose a night..or two haha

|sleev-les||When I go for a long trip, I will party a bit at night, but I'm there to board so Im not going to get blasted and not be able to function the next day. I went on a trip with 14 people a couple years ago. My boy and me were playin' it easy, drank a bit, but went to sleep about midnight. The rest of the group were on the mountain about 2 hours total for the 3 days we were there because they were up all night and so hungover they slept all day.... Thats a waste of the trip to me.|

|david_z||if I had to choose between snowboarding and beer, it would be a very tough choice, but I'm pretty sure I'd kick beer to the curb.|
