NHboomer- Something like 25 years ago our outstanding local TV weather guy described how to get the best outta doing snow fence.
Rule 1 was to put the fence perpendicular to the prevaling winter wind, as much as possible.
Rule 2 was to incline the fence about 15 degrees away from the wind at the top.
Rule 3 was to figger that the end of the snow drift would be downwind about seven times the height of the fence.
Get you a good tractor mounted snow blower and you can skip all those arguments. A subtle benefit of a snow blower is that it lays the output out flat and don't create a big pile of snow for the next snowstorm to create a huge snowdrift behind.
Hope this info. helps, IHank
