I'll ride solo if I have to, which is maybe 25% of the time. I've got a few old friends who ride or ski and a handful of guys that I've met on this forum or elsewhere, so usually between all of them I can get *someone* to ride with. I'm not averse to riding solo especially on bigger mountains but around here it's so small and msotly park, it's a lot more fun with friends.

I live in Connecticut, but have a season pass to Killington. They have done a tremendous job this year with providing excellent coverage and resurfacing whenever possible. I did the whole early season clusterfuck last year and have decided to wait it out a bit this year. I have been up a few times to get my fix. Hoping for a good snowfall soon to open up the rest of the mountain and some tree riding

its always like that. Everyone always gets different passes, you would think the Vail Epics would be the most popular, but for my neck of the woods its Loveland by far. Alot of CO locals help populate that Copper/WP pass too. Its hard to justify going further than Loveland, its the same distance from work as my house, 30min.

I hear you...but is an extra 15 mins to a-basin and keystone really that bad? I plan on spending a lot of time at Breck as well and definitely will be exploring Vail but I guess Im biased as far as driving time to the mountain since my minimum here has always been 2 hours and a lot more often 3 1/2.

It makes a pretty big difference because if winter ever comes back to CO, it likes to fuck up traffic and close the tunnel and the pass. And if it doesn't human error will intervene and fuck it up properly.

Mainly for me because I gotta be at work for dinner shift most of those nights and working it into the schedule that way allows 5-6days a week available to ride.

Copper is pretty much my favorite and the extra drive is no worries, its just a schedule adjustment

None of my friends ride, I ride a ton with my kids 16 & 15

I meet a few local forum members and we have become friends and ride together when they come to the hill. I"m there all the time.

I have also gotten to know many of the locals at the hill. From park rats, to dads, to retired riders.

Never at a loss to ride with someone once I'm there.

Makes sense....I bought the epic knowing I wont be working for at least a couple months so I wanted as much terrain as possible. But once I start working Ill probably have to stick to A-bay to make sure I can get back to work on time....fuckin work is always trying to ruin my season.

I'm not good enough to ride with my friend yet, part of the reason why I'm finally getting off my butt to get started.

It's cold here but not much in terms of winter weather here in CT and it's a bit of a drive to get to most places.
