A rule of thumb – regarding the weight of average snow: One inch of snow, on average, weighs 1 lb. per square foot. That knowledge is what tells you that mere 1.75 inches of average-weight snow on a typical roof is the equivalent of one compact SUV parked on the roof.
On average, snow weighs between 7 pounds per cubic foot and 20 pounds per cubic foot, according to North Dakota State University. The discrepancies can be attributed to the physical state of the ice, its depth and the atmospheric temperature; fluffy snow is light, while compacted snow is heavier.
More average snow may weigh 15 pounds per cubic foot and drifted compacted snow may weigh 20 pounds or more," he notes. Ice buildup adds weight rapidly, he adds. "The decision to shovel off a roof is a case-by-case decision," he says.

Weight between two skis in a pair is seldom the same due to production variation. These charts are a work in progress; check back periodically as we add more weights throughout the season. * Anomaly, ski weight is heavier than expected compared to other skis in the model line
