This is especially the case with WET NEW ENGLAND SNOW. The fluffy powdery stuff they get in Colorado isn't much of a problem, but the wet concrete like stuff we normally see in New England is a different story.

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..

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
