A few more tools in your toolkit for snow and ice management.
Earlier this year, Frost partnered with The Snowfighters Institute, an organization founded to empower the next generation of snow professionals. We were thrilled to sit down with Managing Partner Neal Glatt to discuss more about his businesses and perspective on the snow and ice industry as a whole.
We are thrilled to announce our recent feature episode on the Snowjobs podcast, one of the best resources out there for commercial snow professionals to learn from each other and connect over the challenges of the industry.

A familiar phrase around many cities in the United States is, “if you don’t like the weather, just wait a few minutes.” While this statement is largely an exaggeration for much of the country, there are phenomena in certain areas that actually make that statement true. In the weather world, these areas where there are significant changes in the weather over short distances and time frames are called microclimates.
We’re excited to feature one of our Canadian customers, The Gardener (Peterborough)/Storm Solutions Plus, as our next Featured Froster. Ryan and Mitch have some simple advice for fellow snow removal and landscaping pros: embrace the tech!
One of the most common questions we get is what to do with Frost mini weather stations during the summer.

Although the Mini-RWIS units have a 4+ year lifespan so you don’t have to touch them after installation, some customers have identified creative ways to use them outside of snow season. With just two bands to loosen, it can easily be moved to other locations if needed. Here are a few ways our customers have used their units year-round.
