I always go alone but normally I end up meeting 1 or 2 other people who are also alone and we end up riding the day together. I don't like having to rely on other people so I always thought that this was the best bet. The nearest mountain is about a 2 hour drive from me and when I first started boarding my friends would always have things come up last minute so I eventually just stopped asking them. If you've never been boarding alone you will be surprised at all the different types of people you can meet on the mountain.

Yah I am an idiot. I mean who really wants to be prepared going into an interview for a position you've wanted for several years.

if you have prepared for several years....why look desperate....

should have gone riding, beat your self up, hooked up with a wookie, got wasted and

then gone into the interview...."ya your position is ok...but idk...I need time off to go riding" being cocky and real is a great way to get a job offer....you don't look desperate

No one can play with me mid-week when I can ride. Very much the loner.

Rode with my friend the other day and he told tales of slow partners during pow days being massive stoner laggers out of the lodge.

Monday-Friday riders in Colorado, PM me, let's ride!!!

I ride alone everyday unless I'm doing stuff in the back bowls. There are some very isolated areas that you won't see people at all..... No phone service.... If you get hurt your screwed without a buddy. I go up with my son and wife also but we split up. My wife is a beginner and sticks to blues max. My son and I stick together on powder days on the back side along with a few other people. When we split up on groomer days we see each other often on lifts and will have linch before I go to work.

Take moJos advice, pee with your friednds and sit down while doing it... Your man card is gone.

In my past life out west, solo riding was my favorite! Couple doobs, some good tunes in the phones, and a mountain all to myself!

I did however notice that I would progress my skills more riding with others, especially those better then me. More with growing balls then anything, but sometimes I like others to push me to try shit I normally would't lol.
