After that, you'll need to use a snow load calculator. It's quite easy to find one online. Enter the information requested – like the rise and the roof, ground snow load for your city, exposure, roof type etc. – then follow the instructions. The calculator will tell you the pounds per square foot of snow.

The intent of the snow load calculator is to give you the appropriate balanced and unbalanced snow load as per the ASCE 7-10. What is required is the ground snow load and some general information about your roof. It all pretty much follows a very simple algorithm set out in chapter 7 "Snow Loads".
