alexz commented on the word ice jacking
Ice jacking is where trapped water freezes, and lifts the object above it. Tubular pylons can freeze and jack themselves off of their foundations if enough water is allowed to be under the pylon. In whistler, a ski run had a pylon collapse due to ice jacking.
