I do mostly residential snow. However I was referred to 1 business that wanted their small property done.
Snow is not consist ant enough to count on making money every year. Though there are good years. There is no guaranteed that there will be enough work to invest in the equipment if you have to have the work to pay off the loans.
Snow is worth the effort because it keeps other LCO's off of your customers property which helps to keep you from losing customers.
Snow removal has gotten me new landscape customers.
When it does snow the money is good. So idle time is turned into money making time during the off season.
