Default is it silly to go on a snowboarding trip solo?

because I found a good deal for airfare, and so far none of my friends have expressed interest (in the last 45 minutes of asking people)... but I kind of want to go, but don't think that'd be nearly as fun.

stupid lame friends.

Some of my best days out are by myself. I do love riding with a few choice buddies who I never have to wait up for, but there is something so nice about going at your own pace and doing what you want all day long with no one holding you back.

Yeah, I've had many good days cruising by myself, but that was usually travelling with a group, but I rode alone... I'm just wondering what I'll do alone once the lifts close / cost of getting a room alone.

I am betting that it will involve you eating something, drinking something, maybe even smoking something, and then beating off to skinemax before going to sleep early to get the first tracks the next day.

I do day trips all the time on my own. but, flying and staying in a hotel is another deal altogether.

On epic powder days I usually prefer to be alone anyways because I just pick lines and people either follow me or they don't and I might not see them the rest of the day . Nothing as terrible as sitting at the top of the lift, waiting for friends when there is powder to be slain.

I would do it. I go on at least one solo trip per year. I love it. I really like the uninterrupted riding at my pace on whichever trails I want without having to decide by committee.

This made me laugh pretty good:

The truth hurts and it is funny. I think we have all been there once or twice.
