Snoqualmie for the win

It seems the folks at Snoqualmie Pass have needed to one up the avalanche control methods. Taking the next logical step beyond a Howitzer, Snoqualmie Pass now employs the use of the first M-60 tank to clear avalanches. I first heard about this the other weekend from a resort guest, and went to Google immediately. I was able to find a few videos of this online and news stories too. My guess is it isn't that old an addition. Now the question is, how do I get to shoot one round out of this without having to sign up for 4 years of active service.
