Developments for evaluating snowpack simulations at the regional scale

While the combination of numerical weather forecast models and snowpack models offers great promise for avalanche forecasting over large and data-sparse areas, large scale validation studies have been missing. This poster presents the current state of our research on developing practical tools that allow researchers and forecasters to continuously monitor the performance of these models at regional scales and continuously learn about their strengths and weaknesses to build the necessary trust for operational use.
