Snowpits and Stability Tests: Effectiveness and Limitations
Each month, SAC forecasters bring us a discussion topic aimed at expanding our understanding of the world of snow and avalanches. This January, join SAC director Scott Savage for a presentation about our current understanding of snowpits and common snowpack stability tests.
Why should you dig snowpits or perform stability tests? How accurate are stability tests, and how often do they lead us astray? What are the limitations of the different tests? Is there a “best” stability test?
