Get a part time job at a resort near you if possible. That's the best way to get in with the kids who are killing it and a good way to really push yourself to progress.

I'm in the same predicament. Lots of my friends gave up skiing and/or boarding around 30 (I'm 38) so I don't really have anyone to go with that is at my level. My fiancee skis but she doesn't do anything hard. I'd love to go with someone better than me who could push me to a higher level.

My boyfriend and I developed a website for exactly this reason. We have lots of friends that want to go to the snow but do not have someone to go with and whilst we take them along as much as we can we cannot accommodate everyone all the time.

You can use it for lots of other sports and cultural activities as well.

Go check it out if you are interested in making new snow buddies.

I hope its helpful.

honestly the only way to meet new people to ride with is to be outgoing and ask people. Pretty much everyone is looking for more friends or people to ride with, even if they have a large set group of people, so you are not alone. Just go to the mountain, ride around until you see some people riding that are within your skill level and go introduce yourself. Tell em you are looking for some more people to ride with and progress with and if you are a cool person they will usually welcome you in and hang out. The hardest part is taking that first step and introducing yourself, but thats the best way to meet people. Good luck!

I'm kind of in the same boat. I'm 32 and most of my friends are married and are popping out kids and now have no time to ride/ski any more. One friend that does go regularly just had knee surgery a few months ago so he probably won't go as much this year either.

I plan on taking the bus up to VT a few times this year so hopefully I'll meet some people on the way up.

Otherwise, I don't really mind riding on my own. But, the drive does suck by yourself.

Hey LuckyRVA, I'm 28 and live in Suffolk County on long Island and am always looking for new people to go boarding with. I know a few people who board, but they never seem to go as much as I would like to. I went up to Vt once at the end of last season and loved it, so will definitely try to get back up there again, but for the most part I like my one day Sunday trips to Pa. I even got a 98 expedition last Christmas so I would always have room for one more. I just replaced my shocks, ordered new trailing arms and got an EZ Pass, so I'm ready... just need snow!, and good company of course.

Sounds like a plan. Hit me up on PM here once it gets colder.
