Abstract: A low cost avalanche control device for isolated targets or high risk paths where hand placement, artillery, or high pressure gas delivery systems are not appropriate. The idea of using bomb trams for avalanche explosive delivery is not a new one, but there are actually few 'cost effective' devices in use. -High-Techsystems are already in use in Europe and throughout Canada as well, and these trams are quite costly. With the scarcity of military weapons and ammunition, and avalauncher type devices in questionable supply, a cost effective delivery system can be built to serve special needs.
