Paths of past avalanches are clearly

visible above these two snow sheds.

An avalanche has caused the masonry

retaining wall of the closest snow

shed to fail and it is being replaced

with cheaper timber construction by

construction workers who are drinking

on the job.  Note that these are sheds

#20 and #21. The 31 snow sheds in the Rogers

Pass were all numbered.
