Disruption Season

Winch roller, compaction roller, I think we are calling it the "Disruption Roller." This machine is lowered down some of our steepest terrain by a winch cat. It is a very effective tool for breaking up the snow. Again, it interrupts propagation pathways, breaking up slabs and reducing avalanche hazards. And, it is good for the skiing.

Operating this machine is a collaboration between our Snow Safety Team and our Trails Maintenance Team. Last week the crew worked Pali and West Zuma Bowl with the "Disrupter."
