"Handbook of Snow, Principles, Processes, Management & Use" edited by D. M. 
Gray and D. H. Male, 1981, Pergamon Press Inc., Maxwell House, Fairview Park, 
Elmsford, NY 10523.  

In its 776 pages it has a chapter on snow drift on roofs, plus about 25 refs 
on the subject.  Mostly about/from Canada (surprise!).  If you want I can fax 
the pages to you.  It's not a text or a code, but may be useful.
