CDOT flew all three exploders and the control shelter out to the top of the Big Slide path. The concrete for the forms has cured and the wooden forms have been removed. The helicopter that has been flying timber was once again used for the installation of the avalanche mitigation system. There is some additional assembly to take care of now before testing can be conducted in early October.
