Back in the '70s, '80s & '90s, I skied a lot with friends. As is often the case, my friends moved and I "dropped out" of skiing. In 2007, my son tried skiing at a local hill and he fell in love with the sport. As a result, I got back into skiing and my son and I were ski buddys. We skied a lot together and took many trips out west. When he turned 15, however, he preferred to ski with his friends. Honestly, he had progressed (and I aged) to the point where I could not keep up with him and he got tired of waiting for me. We still go out west, but he always brings a friend or two and I end up skiing solo.
At first, I didn't really like skiing solo. However, the more I skied by myself, the more I began to like it. I like being able to ski what I want, as fast as I want, and nobody is waiting in the chairlift line for me. That said, skiing solo can be lonely. I've tried to persuade my wife to take up skiing, but she really has no interest. I live in a small town and finding people to ski with is diffcult.
So, to the original question, how many of you ski solo? What are your thoughts?
