Doing business in the snow industry isn’t always easy. This year’s State of the Industry survey identified key challenges facing snow & ice management professionals. The 2015-16 season was marked by a lack of snow across most of Canada and the United States. This special section examines some of the trends and challenges identified by the respondents, and our contributors offer solutions and insights on topics like sales, labor, training, liquids, risk and more.
