A snow removal route is a collection of homes within close proximity that are serviced by one equipment operator with a specialized snow removal tractor. Last winter Elements Mtn Co had 45 geographically unique routes in Tahoe Donner.

We structure each route so that all homes on the route can be cleared within 4.5 to 5 hours during a 6 to 8 inch snow event. In a more significant snow event each route can be cleared in about 6.5 to 7 hours.

Each operator is assigned to a specific route. Our operator clears the same homes every time to allow the operator learns the fastest, most effective manner in which to clear each individual driveway. This also allows the operator to learn the occupancy habits of the homeowners on this route and make adjustments whenever possible to provide the most timely clearings.

As we gain and lose clients our routes may change slightly from the previous year. However, it’s our goal to keep our route structure as close to the previous year’s flow to provide our clients with a level of timing and performance predictability.

You can help us by committing to our snow removal service as early as possible. The earlier we can accurately identify our route structure and start familiarizing our operators on the homes they will clear the quicker we can provide you with timely, thorough snow removal.
