The thread listed below gives a nice breadcrumb trail of some of my earlier work on snow load maps:

Hi Nate,

I was also able to add my key to the Ground Snow Load map tool. And the location I need the information for says only "Site-specific case study (CS) required to establish ground snow load at this location."

Is that a service you offer? If not, any pointers on how I might obtain one?

In brief, I'm trying the determine the shallowest hip roof slope I can get away with for use for a small building at 343 Pine Dr, Lookout, California. Obviously I need to know the roof snow load, and for that, per your calculator, I need to know the ground snow load!

Thanks,
