Standard snow Contracts

I run a lawn Care and grounds maintenance company in Delaware. We get snow here, but can go all winter with no more than a dusting. I am bidding on a grass contract for next year, with a neighborhood civic association, and they asked if I could do plowing as well.

I have equipment, and the time, but have never plowed under contract. My question is, How do you structure a snow plowing contract in an area where snowfall is a crap shoot? Do you charge a flat retainer fee, with charges per plow based on snowfall? If so, what are you all charging for retainer?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
