Ok, I'll ask this question here since you guys are the only ones that probably wouldn't call me crazy for questioning this.
The following relates to my new years/chrismas holidays plan. Keep in mind that I have everyday from December 24th until January 4th off of work (paid).
Scenario 1: Stay home. Ride the local mountain (Blue Mountain), maybe Holiday valley (WNY mini-meet, anyone?) and maybe a few others, all in all probably 4-5 days on the hills at least. Partake in a little bit of hanging with friends, and for New Years have a pretty kick-ass party at my house (that most of my friends seem open to coming to)
Scenario 2: Go with my Parents to Jamaica (at no cost to me, mind you), from December 27th to January 4th.
Each has their pro's and Cons;
I'd (obviously) enjoy snowboarding FAR more than some monotonous beach on a resort in Jamaica, but, i mean... its Jamaica (I've never been, and I'd like to see it). It'd be the typical resort-type thing, with golfing and maybe some tours of the tourist-friendly areas (yawn). The bad part is that for New Years I'll (pretty much) be alone... no friends there, and in my family its just my parents and I, my brother and his gf... none of which I'm really that tight with.
Note: We're a slightly disfunctional family, and keep in mind that I'm 26 and prefer travelling alone or with a close companion or two. I get along with my parents better when I don't live at home.
So hypothetically speaking, which would you choose?
