Snow Stacking is the standard way of storing snow during the winter. An alternative way is to haul the snow away, but that's an expensive alternative we'll talk about in another post. So, if it's the standard way, it's a straightforward process, right? Wrong! Snow stacking can become quite large on commercial properties so significant planning must be done before the season even begins to determine the best place to store it. In last month's post, BE AWARE OF BLACK ICE!, we explained that black ice is formed when the snow melts and re-freezes, increasing the risk of slip-and-fall accidents — and you don't want that in your property!!!
The bottom line is that snow stacking is a matter of common sense, it will never be placed near the entrance of a building for example. However, if not planned correctly, it can become an issue during the high season.
