People go on solo ski holidays for many reasons, both young and old. Maybe they are the only member of the family who enjoys the sport. It could be they are simply happier travelling alone or they could see it as an opportunity to meet like-minded people. Some are just sneaking in a second holiday when others can’t make it because they love skiing so much. If you are going on a ski holiday because you want to become a better skier, travelling alone is a great idea.
Whether you are a beginner or an expert, it can be hard to get opportunities to test yourself when you are with a big group of skiers with varying abilities. There can often be a lot of compromise, and you can sometimes find yourself skiing on more intermediate slopes just to please your friends, instead of trying harder or easier slopes which are more suited to your ability.
The good thing about going on a solo trip is that the only person you have to keep happy is yourself. This added freedom of being able to do whatever you want, whenever you want means you can manage your time on the slopes at your own speed. You will not have to worry about your more relaxed friends not wanting to get out of bed until midday, or younger family members getting tired and wanting to end the day early. You also don’t have to be concerned that you might find yourself in the middle of a week-long party scene with people who just want to get drunk. Many solo skiers head on holiday with sport firmly on their mind and you will find many who are happy to have fun but are also fully focused on the next run.
