The disruption roller has been out on the Divide. The MCS crew took advantage of the break in the weather this week and had the roller out in Mirkwood and Orcs. The disruption roller is a mitigation tool that breaks up shear planes in the snowpack and encourages bonding of layers helping to decrease avalanche instabilities. We will also use the roller on Elation 3 before heading out onto the Waterdog Ridge and No Name Bowl. Here is an article about the machine that Powder Magazine put out last winter.
