O’Bellx comes to Fernie Alpine Resort
Tuesday, 06 October 2020
RCR is proud to partner with MND Safety Solutions on a Remote Avalanche Control System (RACS) for the installation of an O’Bellx hydrogen exploder for the Dancer 5 slide path off of Polar Peak at Fernie Alpine Resort.
The O’Bellx Unit will provide the Fernie Alpine Resort Snow Safety Team with a remote control device to stabilize the Dancer Slidepath which runs from the top of the headwall off of Polar Peak, down into Lizard Bowl. This will improve safety for our Ski Patrol and provide confidence for opening the Lizard Bowl.
The O’Bellx will be operational for the 2020-21 Season.
Thanks to AvaTek Mountain Systems Inc., MountainTek, and 6point Engineering who are onsite performing the installation process.
We are very excited to have this new state of the art RACS system here for demonstration and use here in Fernie.
