How do you move snow on a lot like this?

    The lot is about the length of a football field, about 100' wide divided by a sidewalk and a chain link fence, and little snow storage at either end?
    There are 2 roadways leading to either end.

    I was thinking I'd leave this open for suggestions, but here's how we do it.
    Windrow to the fence and blow it over the fence, sidewalk and other half of the parking lot. tymusic

    Can you push all the snow to the other end and use the blower to throw it back to what looks like a field?

    Just based off the description I don't understand why you would blow it to the other side and then have to plow it again

    You said there were to places on site to stack snow. I'd assume one on each side?

    Here's the lot.

    Green area to the left of the left road, 30 degree bank, roadways steep 15 percent hill, same with the road to the right.
    We're blowing it from the fence line across the lot to the lawn area at the bottom, never need to touch it again. Actually we can, with that tractor using the rotating drum on the blower put snow on the road, it's only about 75 yards!
    That blower does about 1000 tons/hour.

    Agreed, that's going to be the most efficient way to push it.
