The snow is plowed from your street, and taken to ... where? This is the part we never really think about. Well, now we know, at least in Moncton, New Brunswick.

YouTube user corbou2000 has posted a video that he/she made using a drone, which flies 200 feet above a snow disposal site on Berry Mills Road in Moncton.

Needless to say, the snow pile is massive. As of February 3, 2015, Moncton received over 200 centimetres of snow during the 2014-15 season, which is more than the city normally gets in an entire winter.

To combat the excess accumulation, city snow removal crews have been moving the snow to the dump site, and the resulting mountain of the white stuff could practically double as a ski hill.
