There might not be much happening inside the polytunnel just now – “Don’t forget about it”. Although a light layer of snow can provide good insulation, try to avoid letting it build up in excess. On small Polytunnels, a soft broom can be used to clear off any fallen snow. With larger Polytunnels, a rope over the tunnel can be used. With a person at each end of the rope, walk along the length of the Polytunnel using the rope to carefully dislodge the snow. You could also increase the temperature inside the Polytunnel with a heater, as this will allow the snow to slide off.
It’s worth your time and effort!
Heres how First Tunnels cleared the snow off their 16ft x 30ft Polytunnel
You can always make a snow man out of the soft snow like First Tunnels
