We get so much snow every year that we have to rebuild the greenhouses every year. The snow is light and fluffy at first, but always ends up as ice.
To prevent the green house from collapsing we have to take the plastic off and just leave the frame in winter. Even then the weight of the snow bends the pipes and does a lot of damage.
Also by having to remove the plastic every year it reduces its transparency and life span. We can only use it about 3 years. Living in one of the snowiest places on the planet doesn’t make life easier and certainly can get costly.

Anyway, here is a timelapse of how we put the roof back on. ( click ‘ building ‘ on top)
