I was in the same boat. I had a few people I'd occasionally ski with growing up but they were too gaper-y to really be considered a "crew." Now I ride with one buddy who is pretty good and we have a great time ripping at college. Ride with whoever rides, skier or snowboarder. I would say most people aren't riding in crews, but rather ride with one or two close friends.
