I have three words for you regarding a cover for the North Shore (I'm guessing Cape Ann, MA)..

Pitch, pitch and more pitch! It is the single most important thing one must to in high snow load areas. The cover must be able to dump or spill the snow or it will collapse. We see quite a few of the gourmet custom made covers collapse because they don't have enough pitch to spill the snow..
