Wyssen Avalanche Control Revelstoke BC.

The control stations are the first of their kind to be implemented in North America. They allow technicians to monitor avalanche conditions remotely on a 24 hour basis. The towers are set up on a 15-degree angle, and hang over common avalanche paths. When they deploy a charge, it drops from a 10-meter-long rope. The charge detonates while suspended above the snow’s surface. Using these new towers again this year will decrease traffic delays during the day. Unlike other kinds of control systems, they are not restricted by weather conditions.
