It was a hard day... with nearly a metre of new snow over the past four weeks, the avalanche risk was very high (4/5). We were riding in the Verbier area when we saw a big slide next to Col de Creblet. Maybe ten people were on the face, all at the same time. Zero safety precautions. Unfortunately, two girls were snowboarding in the middle of the face. The avalanche hit them full force. We were first on-site and immediately started a transceiver search. We quickly found the first girl. The second was 70 metres downhill and we got to her quickly as well. While we were digging them out, people around us kept on skiing in all directions. The inevitable happened. A second avalanche hit. It carried away a third person. Verbier is a freeride mecca. Everyone should have the right gear, know the conditions, but more importantly, get mountain safety training. Thank you WEMountain for your education program – it helped me save lives that day.
