    The entire building was poorly built. The roof was standing on the front and rear walls, with no internal supports at all. The whole place would visibly shake when the wind blew.

    Ski resort about 75 miles from my house got a little over 40' this season. The base is about 5,500 feet to 7,000 at the top. Further north and a thousand feet higher they got about 10' more then that this year.

    I get 3' of snow on the shops pretty much every year.
    Our snow load code is spotty at best, but 30 miles away, NewYork
    code is 65 psf.
    I inquired what 60 psf snow looks like (60 psf was recommended to me)
    and even though snow varies greatly, 60 psf is about 36" deep.

    The old building was a pre-fab. When it came down, the building inspector came by and told me he was surprised it lasted as long as it did. Sadly, it did meet code in '77 when it went up, but sure wouldn't have now.

    The new building, thankfully, is framed in steel.
