Color pics and everything. MojoMojiganga April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Good to know. Those explosives almost look like Nerf toys! Thanks for the heads-up. ironsherpa April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply This is heading into staircase gulch up little cottonwood canyon in UT. Now that the snow is melting be careful out there. Every area with avalanche control won’t always be as helpful marked as this. RoboNinjaPirate April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply If the boys from my scout troop saw these signs it would immediately turn into a giant scavenger hunt. 🙂 truemeliorist April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Holy crap, I honestly never thought of that. Great tip. ironsherpa April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Also, if you ever get the opportunity to go with patrol in the winter when they set these off, it’s incredible to watch. You get to see an avalanche up close while being kept safe. Lumos-Maxima-Non-Nox April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply I FOUND AN EXPLOSIVE!!!!!!!! 1. totally panic 2. disturb the explosive 3. panic when i wasn’t supposed to do that 4. call 911 5. realize that the explosive was my water bottle 6. feel like an idiot Predditor_drone April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Wouldn’t the people shooting these know when one doesn’t detonate, and also know the rough landing location so they can recover them? Keeping track of explosives seems like a good idea. Bdrews23 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Almost as bad as spider webs MiyegomboBayartsogt April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply In Florida we don’t have avalanches but we have alligators and sometimes the game wardens use high explosives to flush the enormous reptiles from hiding so, what with the unexploded ordinance, swimming in the swamp can be hazardous. AllNewMeIn2019 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Unrelated but cool, there was a pretty sick video of a tank owned by a highway department somewhere shooting shells at a mountain to trigger avalanches. It was pretty awesome, I can’t lie. Blowing up snow to cause avalanches is probably second or third on the list of my dream jobs. Edit: here it is folks. It’s an M60. Which I have a total hard on for. Pretty sure there is an M60 on the grounds of a local military museum here in town. Anyway, you don’t need to know that. What you need to know is you should watch this video. But turn your volume down first. It’s a bit loud. https://youtu.be/FZLfboCceGA Bathes-In-Ramen April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Also a timely reminder that even though you might not be hiking in snow, it doesn’t mean your still not at risk of an avalanche. thekrillin April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply I get it for the howitzer, but there is no excuse to leave behind other unexploded ordinance. On my patrol, we had clear protocols for this, and we would have shut the mountain down for the season before we ever just left them there. Shame on Alta for this. bluewings23 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Oh that’s very interesting. Thank you! TrainsareFascinating April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply It seems like it might be practical to put radar reflectors on these to facilitate locating them from the air. redheadedbanegerbutt April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply r/scarysigns bluewings23 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply I don’t understand why they’re there in the first place, someone explain to me? DavieB68 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply I love hiking Alta, and I am pretty sure Alta still has snow right now, it was snowing here In SLC this morning. BoldlyGone1 April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Read “dangers” as “dragons,” got very excited imagining dragons helping to move big boulders, dig and move earth, etc, then relaxing and enjoying their time off in the summer. Aos77s April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply [Cleetus]: So yer sayin theres free explosives on that there mountain?! Bocote April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Hand charge?? Wouldn’t you want to be more than a throwing distance away from an avalanche you’re about to start? How are those used? turtleonarock April 17, 2019 at 6:42 pm Reply Aren’t gps units cheap enough to attach to these now? Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
