    Link: Controlling Avalanche Risk With 50 Lb Bombs - Ok, sitting there holding onto a lit 50 lbs pre-emptive avalanche bomb in a helicopter. Scary stuff. BOOM!

    I was snowboarding there today, it was sweet! 20+ inches in 24hrs. Drove 300 miles to get some of that goodness. They were blasting for 1.5+ hrs before the lifts opened.

    Our worst highway for snow has several concrete platforms that accommodate air-powered cannons in the winter (I forget what you call them). Just drop in a shell, aim at a nasty-looking cornice and >FTOOMP!<......... Boom! Followed, hopefully, by the desired avalanche.
