Mint are stoked to add Bluebird wax to their list of supporters… so if you see our instructors zooming past on the slopes, now you know our secrets!
Bluebird Wax was started in 1996 from a kitchen table in Jackson, Wyoming (USA) and produces a variety of wax for snowboarders. The brand provides an alternative to boring old ski wax and makes some pretty damn good hard wearing wax. More riding less waxing!
Get yourself some Bluebird wax to get sliding faster:
So, the lifts in the Portes du Soleil are still not open and after a few days at the computer (coupled with stresses involving office floods and uniform printing)… I decided I deserved to make the most of this first bluebird day since a week of snow. So back up Mt Chery in Les Gets it was, in the late afternoon sun. Perhaps for the first time ever I appreciated the work of the piste bashers, making the ascent so much easier than earlier in the week.
The views were awesome, especially from the top of Mt Chery over towards Mont Blanc (sorry no photos) and over towards Point Percée (which I climbed this summer).
The ride down… EPIC! Due to freezing cold temperatures it was just the best light, deep powder.
On a personal note; RIP Keith… days like today, I miss you big time buddy. x tammy
This is our morning view from Mint HQ… what an excellent start to the season!
