Pneumatic Explosions Under The Snow Winter Wonderland Spectacular

Inspired by Max's detcord driveway thing.
  [vote for,

During the summer, outfit hundreds, no, thousands of cylinders arranged around the side of a mountain that are connected by a massive air compressor system. These cylinders can be remotely opened to blast snow that falls on them high into the air. They're also equipped with bright colored lights.

Once the maintain is covered with snow, everybody at the resort grabs a hot toddy and watches the night time "Snow Explosion Spectacular".

These pneumatic mortar tubes are triggered and the bright light inside are illuminated causing a massive column of snow blasts into the air lit by the colored spotlight which fades as the snow falls to the ground.

It's basically snow fireworks. You'd outfit a mountain at a ski resort that's unsuitable for skiing and covered with snow but not situated such that there's any danger of avalanche.

Correction: Plus there's the danger of avalanches.

       This proposal seems to lack the essential frisson of imminent death that would make it worthwhile.   

       Also, complete lack of reckless and dangerously inadvisable employment of high explosives.   

       No bun, pending the necessary "improvements".

       Safety first - wear bike clips to avoid groinal freezing.

       Done. I like it better with avalanches anyway.
