Helicopter Bombing on the Shuksan arm and Hemispheres | Grant Gunderson

killclimbz It was safe to do that day evidently. Or maybe they just didn't find the "sweet" spot. Heli bombs also exert a lot more stress on the slope than the typical skier or snowboarder getting those results. I can't say they knew what they were doing or were being stupid either way.

wrathfuldeity Just saw that hemi to gunner's had a fairly large slide on Sat apparently from a heli avy bomb? When I was up there on Wed, there were folks hitting right where it slid and a bunch of us were saying it looked loaded and ready to go...idk.

wrathfuldeity pics from today of the debris pile at the bottom of chair 8; you can sort of see the new rope line from the sticks in the fore ground and the former groomer in the background.

ETM Thats a decent funnel. You can get a sense of the scale by looking at the chair lift on the right

DrnknZag It doesn't quite look like the 20 foot crown first reported, but it looks like EVERYTHING slid. Crazy crazy massive avy, no doubt.

wrathfuldeity It came right up the the edge of the groomer at the bottom of 8. They roped off the last big left turn at the bottom where you run up to the chair. Where you come back inbounds from the arm there are no trees left standing and its filled in with the debris pile.
