Same boat man. I just moved 3 months ago and am ready to go shred every single weekend but the only other people I know that ride/ski have families... First year to ride full time though so I guess I just gotta go and mix into the other groups.

Are you ever in the park? A lot of time you can see through the crowd of people at the top of a drop in or something and start talking with them. At our local mountian we have a short box and short rail which a lot of people learn on and are usually pretty nice, unlike the idiots and jerks who often crowd around the jumps/larger features. Also, get talking to people on the chairlift. Sometimes you'll meet pretty nice people and there's a good chance that they're decent at riding.

I was able to meet a few guys here from the forum. I rode with one last year, and have a few outings planned for this year with the other 2.

Fortunately I take my kids to the local hill so if I'm there I might as well ride. Sometimes we ride togther, often they bail on me and I ride solo. I have ridden with people I have met on the chair, other dads, or riders that we just seemed to meet in the single line of the chair lift, etc...

I ride a healthy mix of days with 1 solid riding buddy, random friends who can make it or meet up there, and solo. I really enjoy being able to do all 3.

Riding with other friends than my one partner helps to change things up and get a new perspective. On days when I have people to ride with the time flies and I like to ride open-close.

The thing I like about riding solo is that all of the non-riding aspects of the day take half the time as you are on your own, no talking, no waiting for someone to shit, etc. I love when I go up solo, like on days when I have to be back for work at 4 or 5 - I go focused on the kind of riding I'm going to do that day, power snack instead of lunch, and usually can get pretty beat down in 4 hours and call it a good day.

you cant just grow a vagina... but u can try to ram your male parts up inside you, thats probably the only cheap option we have. major elective surgery is more costly. ramming = morrow, it will get the job done but alot of ppl are automatically turned off. major surgery = burton/lib (or whatever expensive brand makes a couple of bad boards), doesn't really do the job but few question it because it looks good.

I agree with the earlier suggestion of getting even a part time job at the resort if you can. Otherwise, try ride sharing as a way to meet riding buddies...that is how I met most of mine this last season. You'll meet people with all sorts of ability levels and if you get along you'll eventually meet their friends and so on and so forth. I don't know about in your area but for Mt Hood there were rideshare opportunities on Facebook, through Craigslist, and through sites like meetup.com.

this only applies on powder days, there are no friends on powder days

jk, i pretty much have to ride with someone. Its just more fun to ride with people. Its just more fun to watch each other and share the fun.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
