Avalanche Control on EEOR

After a sizeable snowfall, avalanche control is sometimes undertaken on the East End of Rundle (EEOR) to ensure safety on the Spray Lakes Road (Smith-Dorrien road) that climbs some 300m from Canmore into the Kananaskis Country playground to the south. A helicopter is used to drop explosives on the slope near the peak, and as the attached video shows, there are several gullies that run off the cliffs, and down to the steep slopes below that the road traverses.
