Avalanche Control Lifeline

Fernie required a horizontal lifeline for members of avalanche control team to access this peak to manage the snow pack. The unique location of this lifeline system required very detailed engineering to accommodate the intense weather conditions and heavy drifting snow. Note the height at which the lifeline was installed; during winter the lifeline is at head height when avalanche patrol walks on the snowpack. All people, equipment, and materials required for the project installation was flown in by helicopter.

Check out this video on the skilled technicians working at Fernie Alpine Resort and using the lifeline system we installed for their avalanche control (the lifeline is featured at the 16:30 minute mark)
