im not from out your direction but i found that buckwheat hulls work awsome. layer the bottom of the bed with them, bed the trap(beds solid just in the hulls), and a layer on top. it can snow all it wants but the trap is ready under it... if there is a crust, donet worry. the trap will come right up through it,.

I've been using non-iodised salt for better than 30 years with great results. Salt the bed floor, bed trap and sift cover, clean down to expose pan and salt again, then final sifting. I never cover with snow. It's not necessary and the dirt is a great attractor.
