from the 2018 Snow School attendees:

"I found the legal aspect the most useful to me. Everything was covered relevant and can be applied to what I do at work."
"The facilitators were knowledgeable and had relevant experience in the various topics they presented. It also gave me the opportunity to network with other municipalities to see how they run their operations."
"Learning about the specifics of different materials, including when to apply them before a storm hits, was a lot of help to me in my day to day winter operations."
