Bluebird Sunday Serre Chevalier

Classic Sere Che Weekend

Riding the storm and fresh snow on Saturday and then BlueBird on the Sunday


Heavy snow on Saturday saw a gang on us making the most of the fresh snow and having to hit the steeps in the trees as you needed the gradient to ski as the snow was just so deep and was way too easy to get stuck, but at the same time having to be aware of the very real avalanche danger.

Sunday was just one of those classic days, waking to the sound of controlled blasting, which hopefully was a good omen in that upper runs would be opening, and not a cloud in the sky.

Conscious that Eychauda would open we skied over that way and sure enough we saw it open, twas a bit of a bunfight in the lift queue but think we managed around four runs and then a couple of hikes up above the Col de Mea.

It was tempting to go further afield but along with the controlled avalanche activity there was so much evidence of natural slides that we kept inbounds.
