    Does anyone have suggestions for finding commercial bid opportunites, especially large salt accounts?

    Grab the Yellow pages in your area, and do some cold calling. Thats how I got about half of my accounts. The rest were word of mouth...

    Fax every management co. in your area. It might be till next season that you'll get tons of replies but if you're lucky you'll get them when they need snow removal. Fax every week and around snow storms. Also, pics of your equipment is a big deal. I couldn't believe how that gets me jobs.... pics printed on nice photo paper makes it easier for managers to present you to others.
