    DO NOT PUT PAM ON YOUR DISH!!!!

    It may help with rain, but every thing else will stick to it. It makes a mess of the dish. Looks like tree sap all over the dish if you do that.

    I have heard rain-ex being used. There is also a special spray made for dishes to keep snow off.

    You could always build a clear shroud around the dish.

    My issue is the saly air rather than snow. I use a good quality electronic silicone spray and it works well.

    Bet that would work for snow too.

    do whatever you want. The idea is to get the water off the dish before it ices up. Snow won't be a factor if it doesn't have ice to stick to. If your dish is where you can reach it or hit it with a sprayer, you can de-ice it with windshield deicer, but we only get snow once every two years down here, so I just do that.
