Avalanche blasting

Today whilst we were putting the ski racks away after work (oh how I’ll miss doing that) they were blowing snow off the peak with explosives! It was quite cool to watch, there were these guys hovering in a helicopter then they detonated a series of bombs in a line across the mountain, causing a load of small avalanches. After they’d finished blowing up the first lot, a guy stood on top of a huge windlip and blew off a chunk of snow underneath him, nutter.

Anyway, thought I’d share that :)
