Not been snowboarding for about four years now, kind of lost touch with the folks I used to go with. I’ve thought about solo trips but I know I won’t push myself and will keep stopping for hot chocolate and food, still should do it though, I miss hacking down the piste!
Yeah, this is the problem isn’t it. Quite often find myself on a later flight so stay an extra half day when my friends have gone: end up actually on the piste for maybe an hour. Not nearly as fun on your own.
Action Outdoors are great. Lift pass, equipment, accommodation, meals and instruction are all included. All you need to organise are your flights - transfers can be booked through them as well. It’s sort of like a hostel (although it’s much nicer than any hostel I’ve stayed in), so you end up meeting other people really easily. Everyone else is usually a solo traveller as well. I’d definitely recommend checking out the site:
I’d be genuinely up for it. My wife doesn’t ski and isn’t really keen on it and the kids are young. I don’t have mates who are into it, and my wider family all ski/board but haven’t managed to persuade them that we should organise something
I end up doing the opposite if on my own. End up not stopping, skipping lunch and get absolutely knackered.
I’ve done guiding in some resorts which lets you ski with a group but you don’t have to do lessons. The ones I did seemed to be full of very rich people who were spending the whole winter in the resort but I preferred it to skiing on my own and you never have to look at a map.
