How sick must it be to work avalanche control for the Utah Department of Transportation? Sure, there’s the impending risks of working in avalanche-prone terrain, but you can’t tell me you wouldn’t enjoy shooting an artillery cannon at a mountain to trigger avalanches.

My adrenaline is through the roof just watching this video. With that being said… can anybody get me a contact at UDOT? I need, and I mean need, to witness this kind of work in person someday.

Enjoy the video!
