Examining Whistler's landslide risk

I wonder how development on Whistler affects the chances of a landslide. Pretty sure that the lakes won't record that yet.

“What we look for are archives of these events — some place that captures these events through time, and records them,” Spooner said, after a presentation on landslides in the Sea to Sky at the Whistler Museum on April 8.

Green Lake and Alta Lake could provide such an archive, Spooner said.

”Both of those lakes, they’re deep, and so anything that happens and goes into them, the lake captures it and keeps it and holds on to it,” he said. “The other thing (we could do) is look at the geotechnical records in town and see if there’s any geotechnical evidence that the sediment that the town was built on was old debris flow sediment.”
