    snow is not the big problem. "Ice damming" is, and that depends a lot on the temperature fluctuations and if the snow partially melts, re-freezes, and creates ice under the snow and in the gutter. Then water collects under the ice layer, and siphons upwards (against gravity) under the roof shingles. That is the bigger concern.

    BUT,
    I do not recommend going on the roof to clean it. Your life is not worth some water leaking into the roof.
