Abstract: Common mistakes in locating and constructing snow fences limit their usefulness in controlling snow drifts. Choosing the proper fence height, length, location, and construction methods should follow accepted engineering practices outlined in this paper. Estimates of drift volumes and area to be protected determine fence height and length. Location must leave room for the resulting drift, and take account of terrain interactions. Construction depends on whether the installation is portable or permanent.
