That means the safety precautions we’ve taken since the beginning of the pandemic are still in full swing, with extra measures for snow season.

“We take this very seriously,” says Level Green Snow Manager Greg Stacho. “Customers might not notice anything different, but we’re continuing to follow the rigorous precautions that we’ve followed all along.”

Interesting questions.

Lucky for you, we have answers.

Curious. 

It’s no mystery to our snow manager, Greg Stacho.

He walks us through an hour by hour look at what happens behind the scenes to prepare for a snowfall of less than two inches — when most people are still deep in slumber.
