Growing up in Williamsburg Michigan, it was pretty common to put up snow fences each season to stop drifts from forming in/ across your driveway. They were about 4 feet tall slats of wood inside a wire fence that you rolled out and attached to 6 foot metal posts driven into the ground. You could put them anywhere and just roll them back up in spring. Putting them near a pond would be my idea to better catch that extra water and not worry about when it will melt. Might be a good way to start harvesting snow and eventually when you have the wind figured out they could be replaced with some kind of bush or shrub.
