Snowboarding Alone?
I was just curious as to how many of you go to the slopes alone? I've gone several times by myself, and although I'd rather go with someone so you can talk and work on things together, I still don't mind riding solo. I'm in Boone NC right now for Grad school and the university is closed...we just got about 10 inches of snow and I'm itching to make it up to the slopes to ride, even if i'm alone.....Hoping my 2 wheel drive car will make it!

I almost prefer to go alone, unless it's one of my really good buddies I'm cruising with. No waiting around, no feeling like you're holding up the group, just riding how you want at your own pace. I get sketched out in the woods riding alone though.

I ride alone a lot of the time. You should be fine with 2wd in 25 cm as long as you have winter tyres.

Good to know I'm not alone, in riding alone. And I called one mtn to see what the road was like they said it was a little slushy, but they were able to make it just fine with 2wd. I think I'm gonna try it, plus I just got new tires on my car so that's good. Haha thanks for the responses!

Take a long handled shovel and a bag of grit if you're worried.

I always go solo, just moved to NE a year or 2 ago so dont really know anyone. Anyone i do know doesnt board. Whats wrong with these people?

you could just drive to the bottom of the mountain road and put your thumb out. or if you are a girl just stand there, you'll have a ride in no time
