Abstract: This paper discusses the mobile gun position system used by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Highways in their avalanche control program. The benefits of the system, its basic components, set-up sequence and costs are addressed. The system has been found to be a convenient, efficient, and effective method of controlling avalanches.
