I ride alone all the time. I also ride with buddies all the time. I find there is advantages to both. I enjoy the companies of certain others, and I like exploring the mountain and working on learning multiple things when buy myself.

For me there is benefits to both and I enjoy doing each equally.

Nothing better than shredding alone with some headphones in on a stressful day for me. Other than that riding with friends is awesome too.

i ride alone as infrequently as possible..i dont even like taking most runs alone..it just gives me a bad vibe, and i instantly get a little more cautious because i know if i go down, im stuck waiting on snow patrol or someone to help me out..

Riding alone is great because you set your own schedule, go where you want to, and don't have to wait for others to strap in (Flow owner here).

But I recently had a couple of riding days with other guys on the forum which was the first time in my snowboarding career (?) that I've ridden with people better than me. It immediately upped my game.

I've only been 6 times but my 6th I rode alone. I learned so much that day it was awesome. when you have nothing else to think about other than technique it really helped me. and I got way more runs in lol. I've skated forever and always loved skating alone, always seemed to learn something new by myself.

I've ridden alone a lot. Sometimes cause my husband was teaching, sometimes cause I had time off when no one was available. Some of the best times were a few solo runs early in the morning before work in the mountains. I went alone about a week ago and just lapped a powdery area. I forgot what a good time I have by myself. I've also got a good riding buddy. Another person who used to go alone. We meet at the mountain a few times a week.

When I first moved to Colorado I worked mornings and would go to Loveland for a few runs in the afternoon.

I will board alone at a park but not on a mountain. Safety mainly.

I don't disagree SnoWolf but I've already been in the situation where if I didn't Have someone with me, I might've been out there for awhile on my own with a fully broken collarbone. It's not to say I don't run some laps by myself, but I've learned I can't rely on other people on the mountain to help me out.. So I ride a little extra conservatively (not that I ride very conservatively to begin with

LOL,....... no.

People who are better than me are a dime a dozen, people who will put up with me.... not so much.
