How snow fencing works is really a pretty simple concept. A properly constructed fence will cause snow to drift down wind of it. When the wind blows over the fence it causes an eddy or swirl to form behind the fence. This in turn causes a rolling wind current that flows downward and to the back side of the fence. As a result of this air current, a drift of snow forms in front of the fence on the windward side. A well designed fence can retain the snow to a place of your desiring as well as preventing snow from drifting to unwanted areas.
