lonerider 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.

dreampow 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.

hikeswithdogs 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.

bseracka 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.

How do you have a good time snowboarding alone? Do you just cruise, listen to iPod? I don't want to get bored.

neednsnow Kudos to what everyone else said. I tend to ride solo. I've made some good friends riding solo, friends I still keep in-touch with. I've also spent an evening or 2 with a few different ladies as a result of riding solo. Have fun, check the tunes, and rock it out! Don't get blind drunk, it makes the next day a little less enjoyable, though a powder day cures most hangovers.

BruceWard There is one consideration though - take it seriously that you are by yourself with no support to get home -

Always be a little bit cautious to know that you have to be the one to get yourself that double black worth it (hell yeah, but with caution)

Ridethesnow80 I've taken a lot of solo trips to VT snowboarding and had a blast! Riding with friends is fun but when it's just you you won't have to worry about what run every one wants to do or takin breaks. You have your own schedule once you get your iPod on you'll get into a zone where your just cruising! I have on occasion met some people riding the lift and did a few runs with.. Personally you should do it and if you find that your not feeling it then just do day trips !

Heatwave Thanks guys, I tend to end up talking to random people on lifts whether my friends are on the lift with me or not. Sounds like a good playlist is essential. I'll probably spend the mornings shredding hard, then use the afternoons to cruise and get some good gopro videos...then just get blind drunk in the evening!
