The debris field is about 150' wide. Think about what something like this could do if it picked up a rider and carried them through a grove of trees, over a cliff, or into a creek bottom. Things could turn out Bad. Very, very Bad.
The other day while skiing Echo Peak I actually had to ski tactically to avoid being hit by snow-wheels and point releases that I had kicked off a few turns earlier. This is a for-real hazard.
Be safe out there!
