Avalanche Maker Game

Do you have what it takes to help skiers and snowboarders avoid an avalanche? Learn how wind, precipitation, and temperature factor into weather conditions as you try your hand at avalanche control. The Avalanche Maker Game (next to the Photo Booth) creates tame snowslides or dangerous avalanches based upon the weather conditions you select. Push the button to send an explosive toward the mountain and try to trigger a controlled avalanche before it becomes a hazardous surprise. Discover the combination of factors that create dry slab avalanches, which are the most dangerous type of slide - the kind that Utah experiences most often.
