A snowboard is typically a sheet of plywood attached to the mailbox post on the side facing oncoming snowplows and can help in deflecting thrown snow.
Given the stresses mailboxes can face in a snowy climate, it is suggested to stickwith inexpensive designs, noting that metal often proves more durable than plastic in our cold temperatures of winter.
If postal customers like to display decorative mailboxes, it is recommended to swap those out with a more basic design for the winter months.
