With limited temporal resources during operations, ski guides often use small-scale stability tests (ST/CT) to quickly obtain valuable information. This research wants to explore how accurate small-scale tests are in assessing stability and if differences in the testing methods depend on snowpack properties. Furthermore, we want to assess if the fracture character of small-scale tests is a reliable tool to predict propagation propensity as measured in the ECT and the PST.
