Now a ski slope, this pile of rock formed as a mass of ice and rock that flowed downhill. The surface topography is partly due to compression of the debris as it flowed (plus later human modification).

This type of glacial/periglacial feature is thought to be an analog for features called debris aprons found at the base of massifs on Mars.
