|Tech420||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.|

|neednsnow||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.|

|sleev-les||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.|

I ride alone most of the time.. I get tired of hearing excuses and if my buds happen to go up the same time ill let them know where I am if they want to meet up.
I don't like waiting on people anymore, because they stop you from growing.. I'm comfortable by myself and will just meet people on the mtn
OP shoot me a pm since your in SoCal. Ill be at the local mtns

I travel and ride solo all the time, like I have said before if I waited for others I would never go anywhere.I am even doing 6 weeks in japan solo starting in january.
The trick is you have to be content with yourself, lots of people can only be happy if they are with other people which will stop them from doing hundreds of things in their lifetime, especially as they get older. If you are one of these people you will get homesick and probably end up crying for you mother in the middle of the night. The internet can keep you connected to others if you really cant stand it.
Travelling solo is also a great way to meet new people and try things you wouldnt normally, I highly recommend it and if you can handle it you open up your life to a whole new range of possibilities.
