Untitled[edit]

could use a map like the other belt pages

-Shouldn't "Snow Belt" be two words as well? Pumpkingrrl 15:51, 27 March 2006 (UTC)

Is this and Frost Belt the same thing? --75.72.161.204 01:17, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

"Deep North"??[edit]

I removed the unsupported allusion to "Deep North" as I could not find a single use of that expression as used in this article. The person who added it to the article has added other questionable alternate names and nicknames without citation from reliable sources. 147.70.242.40 17:35, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Map[edit]

The current map shows only the OH, PA, and NY sections of the Snowbelt. The article includes several other areas in IN, MI, WI and Canada that receive lake effect snow. The map should include those areas as well. BobDively 18:17, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

Overhaul Needed![edit]

This article is poorly written, sourced and has a lack of matching graphics's/visuals. It needs a major overhaul and some proper structuring using headings and sub-heads. I will do my best to bring it up to par with other articles of a similar nature. For one, Canada is largely forgotten in the article even though it has a significant number of snow belts. Secondly, this article should be strongly tied into lake effect snow since that is the major driving force for these snow belt regions. Third, there is virtually no systematic order within the article dealing with lakes or regions. Also highly localized ideas such as that of ski country are used.

A snowbelt vs. The Snowbelt=[edit]

This page probably ought to be two separate pages: a) snowbelt, an area that receives significant lake-effect-type snow and which could include areas in Japan, Russia, Europe, etc.; and b) The Snowbelt - the region that Americans and Canadians associate with the areas downwind of the Great Lakes.
