Title Effects of Methods of Slope Packing as Determined by the Ram Penetrometer
Subject Avalanches; Penetrometers; Skis and skiing
Description A conference on Slope Maintenance Promlems was held at Winter Park, Colorado, on February 6 & 7, 1962. Most of the members who participated in this meeting were directly connected with ski area management. However, I was asked to participate by means of making penetrometer graphs on prepared plots in an attempt to find which method of slope packing would produce snow that was less likely to be displaced by continual skier action, the largest factor in the production of moguls.
