The Gaz-ex Exploder is a remote avalanche control device that uses a mixture of propane and oxygen to detonate a huge concussion wave across an avalanche prone slope.

Located at the start zone of a known avalanche path in Kootenay Pass, B.C., this Gaz-ex controls the avalanche prone slopes above of Highway 99 to preemptively trigger and release unstable snow, and enable safe Winter driving.
