(This is from my 11 year old son, purely because he's curious and because we have 11' snowbanks this year).
How big would a snowman have to be for at least some snow to survive to the next winter?

Assume a normal summer and winter at a location in Southern Ontario .
Simplifying assumptions welcome -- we're looking for a ballpark here. Effects of sun, wind, rain may or may not be taken into account.
We might turn this into a science fair project next year...
